Dog Eating Waste

We have a pup 5 months old that eats his waste. We take him out for walks/ and the doggy park 2 to 3 times a day so he's not bored. He has been going to the vet for the problem of eating his waste. When he is on the medicine that is mixed with food  he is fine, but once it has gone through his system he's back at it. He doesn't do it al the time. He doesn't touch other dogs or old feces.Please help.
He will be going back to the vets on March 27 for his booster shots.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hopefully it will be a problem that he will grow out of.  In the mean time continue using the Forbid, or Accent, or whatever product that has given you positive results for a much longer period of time.  Puppies have short memories, and he may simply have forgotten about the foul taste soon after you stopped using the deterrent.

Please also have him dewormed even if tapeworms have not shown up in his stool, and add a strong Probiotic to his food.
