Why Do Dogs Eat Grass?

Hello sunshine, and goodbye apartment – North and I will be taking plenty of outdoor adventures as the weather's looking up for the weekend! Although my pup usually trots along happily beside me – except when greeting any and all passersby – there are times when he lays on the grass and tries to take a nibble.

Always up for a little education, I consulted my pals at PetMD to see what's up with his impromptu sidewalk salads. Since dogs are omnivores, they like a bit of the grassy stuff and can even use the blades of grass to soothe upset stomachs and add nutrients to diets. While most experts say this is OK, sometimes pups who eat a little too much . . . throw it back up afterward. In addition to adding veggies to your pets' diet to increase "good" roughage, see one more idea to up the greens when you read more.

Since you never know what else is on that lawn you walk by, order up nutrient-packed wheatgrass seeds for your home. Simply plant in a decorative floor pot and let your furry friend take a nibble when he wants – what a sweetly eco-tastic touch for springtime!
