Yes, sometimes science is put to use to really help out the human race…and in this case, our best friends as well!
If you are sick of picking up your dog’s poop, or having a bunch of surprises waiting for you when the snow melts, researchers at the University of Illinois found you can make your dog poop less by feeding them human-grade dog food.
It’s easier to digest, and they eat less because it has more nutrients. They say it can cut the amount of poop you’ll scoop by 66%.
