    Maude sees the donkeys everyday. She grazes like them. She eats grass like it's ice cream. Never had a dog that eats so much grass like her.

    Bazza quite often eats grass too, and I have often wondered the same thing. I have seen him eat grass and is normal and fine, and then I have seen him eat grass and throw up
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    My vet has told me it is a myth about the stomach upset, but i am not sure i buy that in all case. @TyTysmom can explain with her baby.

    My two will eat it just because it is there... no other reason

    Funny I was having this convo yesterday with the Prettyone , with Rosie coming home Saturday and it being Fall fertilizer season here I was concerned about the new pup on the lawns . I did purchase the type that you can put on and then play on the lawn immediately there after by Scotts but not sure I trust all that Marketing . We have app 1 1/2 acres of lawns here that the dogs run , play ect ect on .

    There are many mixed opinions and suggestions out there with grass. One says upset stomach, others say lack of nutrient, and then other simply say dogs will just eat it for no reason at all. In our own personal experience, Tyson has eaten grass when he's sick. So for us, its a solid sign. Just recently, around the 1st of the month he started eating grass, so we started him on Pepcid. 2 weeks later he vomited up a small piece of foil. He still continued eating the grass, then 2 days after the foil, he pooped out a large piece of something cotton. I have no clue what it was, I washed it, just looking like some sort of stuffing or cotton material. He is still eating grass so we took him into the vet this morning, xrays were clear, and they said he has gastroenteritis, (basically inflamed belly due to those things that were in there) we did get any antibiotic for his allergies/yeast, but he'll be on bland for a few days with pepcid so his belly can calm down.

    So my final strongest advice is this. You know your dog. If you dog has always eaten grass for as long as you know - then its probably nothing but just wanting to eat it. If you dog normally does not eat grass at all (like Tyson) but then starts eating the grass, then perhaps they do have a small belly upset.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Dozer doesn't eat grass, but Blossom does, she especially loves the grass pucks left on the grass after it has been mowed.
    She is always eating stuff on our walks like grass, flowers, pine cones, sticks, and cigarette butts. I have to constantly watch where we are walking and divert her from stuff. She is fine, and doesn't seem to have an upset tummy, it's quite the opposite, she has a cast iron stomach.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
