Although none of my dogs has ever eaten ferret poop, you should see them go
after kitty poo.

Or see the barn dogs line up when the farrier comes, they eat the trimmings
off the hoofs. also knew some dogs that would eat horse poo too.

My riding instructor had to stop bringing her dog to the barn because she
would eat horse poo and throw up in the car on the way home.

And I do know that even in animals it is called pica.
