Here's a recipe for the Pineapple & Molasses drop cookies. They look disgusting but dogs love them. They are great for dogs that eat feces as it has pineapple in it. It is said one possible reason for this may be from not getting enough protein in their diet.

Why is pineapple the key to discourage dogs from consuming their own feces?
1.) When pineapple is digested, it develops a taste that puts the dogs off, ending this habit.
2.) Pineapple also contains an enzyme called bromelain that help dog’s breakdown protein. Enabling more protein absorption into their system.

Lastly, use caution with pineapple. It is high in sugar and some dogs may react differently, causing diarrhea, especially when given in excessive amounts.

Is this recipe suitable for felines? For the most part no because of the high acid content of this fruit. While cats can and love to eat fruit, acidic fruit can upset their stomachs. Melons such as watermelon, honeydew melon, and cantaloupes are acceptable fruit to give cats as a treat.
