WHY IS MY DOG EATING DIRT AND GRASS?

Why Is My Dog Eating Grass And Dirt?

Strange but true: dogs eat grass. They probably do not intentionally eat dirt, although it may appear that way to you. Science really doesn't have a definite explanation for this unusual grass-eating phenomenon. However, scientists do know a few things, including the facts that:

  • Some dogs eat and digest grass as part of their diet.
  • Dogs utilize grass as roughage.
  • Some dogs eat grass to relieve stomach acids.
  • Dogs will eat grass then vomit up a grass/stomach fluid mixture a short time later.

If your dog is eating grass and not vomiting, you should not worry as long as the grass is chemical-free and not growing near a road where automobile emissions accumulate. If your dog does vomit after eating grass, you need to start feeding meals more frequently throughout the day -- this will lower stomach fluids.
