Can Dogs Eat Grass?
Is It Really Safe for Your Dog to Eat Grass? Read more to find out.
Dogs are omnivores, and grass is one of the most common plants that dogs have been eating for thousands of years. Some theorize that dogs do that because they need more fiber in their diet. Or maybe they just crave a salad. You can try giving other leafy vegetables instead of grass with no problem.
It’s normal for sick dogs to eat grass and then quickly vomit. Dogs typically do this so that they can throw up something they previously had eaten which was irritating their stomach. The grass helps stimulate the vomiting, and dog instincts tell them they should eat some.
So, if your dog suddenly chews a little bit of your lawn, don’t fret. Be careful though that your dog does not eat grass treated with chemicals such as insecticides, herbicides, or fertilizer.
