Eating sand can greatly erode tooth enamel, causing decay, cavities, sensitivity, discoloration, and pain. This is because of the abrasiveness of the sand.

Yes, they can die from impaction by eating on sand if sand gets caught in their food. However, you can use calcium based sand and not have to worry. Calcium based sand can be digested by Bearded Dragons without hurting them.

I am not sure why your dog is eating sand, however I know cats will liter in the sand and it may be your dog smells and is trying to eat cat feces or even other dog feces. I would discourage your dog from doing this as sand caries lots of little critters that can be bad for your dog. Your best bet is to ask your vet and also ask them what the dangers to your pet can be for doing so.

Every dog eats a little sand here and there. If he's going out of his way to eat sand, he either has a bad habit, or maybe he is deficient in some nutrient. I'd talk to his vet. How much? If he gets a little in his food it won't be a problem. If he's eating it straight, yea, that could be bad.

it depends what you mean by bad eating habits, over eating can lead to a person being over-weight, under eating can lead to a person being underweight..

Not as bad as eating only one or none. Not as good as eating three or more. It also depends upon what you eat, how much, and when.
