I have heard that when a dog eats grass, they have an upset stomach but I didn't find anything online that suggested this is more than an old wives tale. Mine go through phases where I can hardly make them stop eating it....other dogs I have had never did this more than once in a blue moon so, I thought I would see how typical y'all thought this may be?

My boy loves eating grass. I tried to get him to stop but since it comes out the other end, I just don't let him eat too much. Read they may be lacking something in their food when they eat grass, researched all about it, so many different points of view... basically he only eats the new grass, usually just the ones about to seed, and I don't stress it. he likes it, so whatever. lol

Keira loves grass too... she's just a weirdo lol. :)
She'll eat it even if she just ate (and she eats RAW, so I know her diet is perfect) and since it never causes her any trouble... I just laugh and tell her she's a cow :)

Ever since my boy was 8 weeks old he's been chowing down on grass. I asked our vet about it and he said it's nothing to worry about. He said some dogs eat grass because they like the taste, can't argue with that.

Mine has been eating grass since I can remember. Before he eats or after, it don't matter. If he wants grass he will eat it, even hunts certain types out. I don't know if its certain breeds that love it or just certain dogs. My other dogs don't care about eating it.

You think that's bad? I caught both my pups trying to smoke it! No wonder they've been so hungry lately.
Hope they were sharing! lol

My Roo loves grass! She even loves dark salad greens. If I give her a piece of dark lettuce she's less likely to go outside and eat grass.

So maybe she's just watching her girlish doggie figure?

That made me LMAO! Seriously.

Ecko isn't a grazer, but my last dog Misty, who lives with my Mom is. I called her the cow dog, almost changed her name to Elsie. LOL!

Lina likes eating grass every once in a while. It's usually after she's done running around for a while. But there are times she will just eat it for no apparent reason. Sometimes when she eats it, she pukes. Other times, she doesn't.

No consistency. I usually don't mind it as long as she pukes outside.

Bristol eats grass to. He's done it ever since I got him. I try to stop him from doing it but he just keeps doing it. It doesn't seem like a problem though from other responses.
