Why is my dog eating grass?
Original Question: What is the reason my dog is eating grass? - Anonymous
Most dogs don’t suffer harm from occasionally eating grass. They may infrequently consume it to aid digestion or relieve an upset stomach. Sometimes, grass-eating stems from medical issues like dietary deficiencies or gastrointestinal distress. Contact your vet if you also notice symptoms like diarrhea or vomiting.
Periodically, dogs may eat grass out of boredom. Chewing grass provides sensory stimulation and helps satisfy their natural chewing instincts. Creating an enriching environment for your dog with engaging toys and activities can minimize grass-eating behaviors.
