Why do dogs eat grass?

dogs eat grass

It is often believed that dogs eat grass because it makes them sick, so cleanses their digestive system. It could therefore be an indication that the dog is feeling unwell or has an upset tummy.  In reality, only about 25% of dogs are sick after eating grass and there is no evidence that they are doing it because they are ill.  It is possible that dogs eat grass because they are looking for fresh nutrients, or extra fibre, but the most likely cause –  is that they like the taste! 

There is no need to worry if your dog likes eating grass. As long as you know that the grass is clean & toxin free, and they are not eating it obsessively. Also they shoudn’t be eating grass and avoiding their normal food. 

If you are concerned about your dog’s health, always contact your Vet.
