Mother eating daughter's poo Can't Post

alrite, here goes..

I have a female lab, 3.5 years of age and the bitch whelped to 5 healthy litters.

I'm keeping only one female lab, her daughter as to accompany the mother lab. Lately these 2 months, i noticed the mother has been eating the daughter's poo very very frequently and to some extend lick the spot where the small lab urinated. That pisses me off & disgusted me.

Is this some sort of motherhood behavior? Mine you the small lab is now 5 months old. I've caught the mother on the spot a few times but the scolding doesn't go through her thick skull..

Do you have any recommendation on what else to do?
