Why is my dog eating grass?

No, your dog isn’t turning in to a goat. Tell me when they sprout ears. Dogs may be eating grass for a multitude of reasons such as:


It’s yummy– If your pup is anything like ours, they gobble up anything and everything they can, including grass. Dogs’ taste buds are different from ours (judging by their eating habits), it might seem tasty to them. Dogs are also natural scavengers, they might find it filling a nutritional need their regular diet isn’t. Consult your vet if you think it’s related to their diet.


They’re Bored– They’re bored. The grass is there. To dogs, the solution is to eat it. Try playing more stimulating games and bring your dogs inside sooner. Here are 6 ways to stay active with your pet.


Stomach Troubles– Dogs might turn to the ground if they don’t feel well. While vomiting is quite rare, this is still an issue. Stomach troubles may be a sign of another more serious illness, consult your vet if you’re concerned.
