Can anybody tell me why my dog will not only lick...but actially consume a used sanitary pad anytime he has access to one? I have moved the trash can out of reach and he has jumped on the counter to get them. This is ssssssooooo gross. What causes this? Grossed out in Virginia

maybe its b/c he thinks he can smell a bitch in heat and he is trying to get her sent so i would say putting a rubbish bin in ur bathroom and make sure he cant get at it b/c usually if a male dog knows a female dog is in heat somewhere near they become stressed.

My dogs have done that too, dunno why they do it....the post before mine seems to have a good answer though....maybe you can put them in a plastic bag or a Ziploc bag and put them where he can't get to them until you get ready to take the garbage out....Suebee
