Episode 22: Why Do Dogs Eat Disgusting Things?

By Cuteness Team

Almost every pet parent has an embarrassing story about coming home to their dog or cat parading around the house with a mouthful of something gross from the garbage can. Most owners are careful to ensure their dogs don't have access to used sanitary products and that cats cannot reach things they shouldn't eat, but that one time when company comes over for a visit, your pooch is found in the hallway noshing on dirty underwear.

It's frustrating and yucky (and sometimes comical), but there is a reason for the behavior.

Cuteness Pawdcast hosts, Renee Colvert and Allegra Ringo, delve into the fascinating world of pet appetites to examine everything from vegan and gluten-free diets for pets to why dogs like to eat unsavory things.

They also share the strangest things pets are reported to have eaten from around the web and their own experiences feeding hungry dogs and picky cats.
