Why does my dog eat grass?


Dogs are carnivores (meat eaters) but also have omnivorous habits. Most canines will munch on some fruits, tubers, and other plant materials, including grass. The typical answer for grass eating is the dog has an upset stomach and vomit that contains grass seems to verify that. However, dogs eat grass for many reasons; the dog may be hungry, the grass may smell good, or the dog may be bored. There is no problem with your dog eating grass unless there is an increase in it that goes along with other health changes. If this happens, call your veterinarian.
