    Default Why Do Dogs Eat Grass?

    All my dogs have eaten grass...there is a patch grass growing down the back that is a different type to the rest and the dogs always eat it. A bit here and there usually, but yesterday arvo Candy was grazing on the grass like a horse! Then she spewed....went back, ate more then spewed again

    It's a fairly normal dog thing, especially if they have a sore gut, constipation etc. It's a dogs way of sorting gut problems.

    Yeah if my dogs aren't looking well, without a doubt they will go and eat some grass, throw up, then they are happy chappys again. Guess it's their remedy for getting rid of an upset tummy

    Thanks for your replies

    Gee, Candy must have had a bad tummy ache yesterday...I've never seen a dog full on graze like she did for about 5 minutes!!

    I cleaned up her spew and there was nothing odd in it (like a chewed up kids toy )

    Yeah I find that too, it's usually just a bunch of half chewed grass and saliva! But once I did find a sock, no wonder Oscar wasn't feeling too good!

    Yeah...we have a patch of lawn that's different to the rest of the lawn and my girls love it. They graze on it like a pair of cows, especially Lola. She eats it everyday...maybe it's become a habbit?
    OMG ! ALLY...a sock ?

    Hahahaha yes Mags, a sock! My brother was working on his car in the garage a while back, and took his shoes and socks off cause it was stinking hot, and Oscar grabbed one and ran off with it hahaha. Came out not too long after, mixed in with the grass he had eaten! When I was younger (around 4) my Kelpie x Lab Jake used to steal our socks off the clothesline and eat them! And it was only the socks, never the underwear or shirts, towels etc!

    He, he...that's funny Ally ! I know it's not at the time...Lola steals socks out of the laundry, but only when noone's home.

    Taya grazes all the time! Though I've never seen her be sick afterwards. With all the grazing and gallumphing around the yard, I call her 'horse'!
