Pica “eating dirt” is often a sign of nutrient deficiency or some sort of gastrointestinal upset, which can be caused by any number of problems.

This is something a vet should look at but I understand that isn’t an option for many, myself included.

If it’s nutrient related changing his diet can only do so much at this point, he’ll need to be given vitamin supplements to boost his intake.

Another possibility is that this could be an ongoing chronic illnesss from how he was being treated that’s now manifesting, renal or liver disease.


I’m hoping the best for your sweet boy, all geese deserve the best, but with what he came from he deserves it all the more.
What vitamin supplements do you suggest? Someone on another group suggested B complex vitamins.

For the nutri-drench. How much would I give him and how often?
This is the dosage listed for the product on Jeffers Pet website
“For rapid results, give undiluted, directly into mouth. 1 cc per 3 lb. Can be measured in the bloodstream in minutes.”

There isn’t information that I can find for duration so the best I can suggest is what I’ve done in the past. I’d give it once in the morning and once in the evening for maybe two or three days, and then lay off because I worry about overdosing on Vitamins A and E. The body doesn’t really store vitamin C or B very well so it’s really difficult to overdose on them but A and E are a different story.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that I am not a vet, I’m just someone else who’s doing the best they can with limited means so it’s always important to do your own research on everything and make your own decisions based on what you find.

Thank you so much. You have been very helpful. I will try this first because I believe he might have a vitamin deficiency.
