Dog scavenging

My 7 yo JRT cross is driving me insane!! The last couple of weeks, which seems to have coincided with the drop in temperature, she is eating everything in sight! She's so far eaten dog poo, her own poo, pumpkins people have left out for squirrels, dung in the fields, veg from the compost in the allotments, rabbit poo and an assortment of other unpleasant things (not unpleasant to her obviously....)
She was wormed about a month ago, so I'm pretty sure its not that. I've not changed her food. The only things that have changed is that her dog companion died in September, and the weather has turned colder. It's a very marked change- she's always scavenged a bit, but this is extreme!! Any tips?

I would go to the vets for a health check - it could be a symptom of an underlying health problem.

I use a Baskerville muzzle on my Shepherd to stop her scavenging.
