Do Dogs Eat Grass?

doggrassYou may be surprised when you notice your dog eating grass. This is really not that unusual. Many dogs like to nibble on greens from time to time yet veterinarians aren’t really sure why. Some say this it is a normal part of a dog’s diet because in the wild, canines eat all of their prey including the plants in their intestines. Another theory is that it could be a sign of fiber deficiency. Some people have found that changing the dogs food, helps stop the behavior because dogs tend to vomit after eating grass.Another theory is that the when a dog feels ill they will eat grass and vomit. They eat grass to clean out their stomach. We may never know why dogs eat grass. Unless your dog is vomiting frequently, there’s probably no reason to worry. I knew someone who thought that their dog liked it and put a little grass in the dog dish with it’s regular dog food. Of course, don’t think of doing this as grass is not a normal part of a dogs diet! Feed your dog high quality dog food and if you notice him eating grass and vomiting often, have him checked by a vet to rule out an obstruction and other conditions.
