    Question Eating grass

    Does anyone else have the issue of their dogs eating grass.

    I was originally lead to believe it was to help them throw up, this isn't the case in most dogs, and usually only extends to cats.

    So, my questions are: Why does he eat grass? What can I do to stop him?

    I have noticed that if I stick to "beef and vegetable" dog food, as opposed to "chicken and vegetable" he does it less.

    Any one else have any experience with this?

    Re: Eating grass

    Both of mine eat grass. Mojo will throw up after eating grass, Rose doesn't get affected by it. I think they both just like the taste of grass, but here is a link to give you a better idea of possibly why.

    Thanks, that is really useful, I may try something along the lines of more fibre.

    He isn't bored when he's doing it, and doesn't throw up, so nutritional deficiency seems the most likely things.

    [edit]Somehow I managed to post this in the wrong thread... corrected!
