my dog, a six pound miniature poodle puppy, 15 months, has been eating grass ever since she threw up two days ago. I took her to the vet's for a checkup and he could find nothing wrong. Last night she had multiple bowel movements and when outside tries to eat as much grass as she can. Any suggestions?
Dont worry about your dog eating grass, all dogs seem to do it at some time or another, my irish setter was a nightmare for grass when she was younger, she ate so much that i thought the acid was going to rot her teeth. It is a kind of medicine for them, when their tummys or a bit upset, the eat grass to make themselves sick, and hopefully make themselves feel better.
my puppy has eaten grass, any kind of roots, twigs, bark....ANYTHING...I have to watch him because i am sure that the sticks and bark aren't too good for the tummy. He's a little weirdo. I thought he was eating the grass because of a tummy ache but he has done it every day since the day i brought him home 3 weeks ago! Normal puppy stuff i guess!
I just saw the dumbest product I have ever seen in Petsmart. They actually sell a little pot of grass for dogs and cats. I think it was like $5 for a 4”x4” patch of grass. I can’t believe people actually buy that.
Really would not worry unless your friend started grazing like a sheep or goat. Virtually every dog I have owned throughout my life has done it. I've read similar things eases upset stomach ,or digestion too. Sometimes grass filled puke, sometimes grass filled feces. Just like people I'm sure they feel crappy every once in a while without actually being ill.
