Speedy has picked up the habit of licking dirt. Growing up on a farm, I know horses and cows can get colic and die from having sand in their stomachs. Anyone experience this? Is it a sign he is missing something in his diet? He gets Natural Balance Low Calorie dry food and mixed can veggies, no salt added and I pick out the corn.
Thanks, Speedermeister

Here's an interesting discussion of pica (eating non-food items) in dogs that answers some of your questions.

Thanks. That explains alot. I think I might even have some of those problems.
