You can think of grass as an herbal medicine. It acts as an internal cleanser, expelling excess mucus, bile, and other impurities. It also cleanses the bowels and expels worms. Cereal grasses contain enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Grass also contains chlorophyll, which was used for relieving pain, treating infections, ulcers, skin diseases, and anemia prior to the use of antibiotics.

Lauren, people always tell me something is wrong with Mel if he eats grass. He will eat it every time he is on it, non stop, if I would let him. It does not seem to bother him and it usually just comes out the other end. People say I am feeding him the wrong food. I say he just likes to munch on grass. Should I be concerned? (I feed him blue buffalo Chicken and brown rice)

How funny is it that I had an Austrailian Cattle dog who used to eat as much grass as cattle and he never threw up and was always fine LOL! But then on the other hand I had an Alaskan husky who would eat grass and with in minutes throw up. I've always heard that dogs with upsets stomachs will eat grass to help them feel better. But then my cattle dog just ate it because he liked it and I let him. Especially this time of year when it has a sweeter taste to it. However, now that I think about it my ACD had some GI issues so maybe it was his "herbal remedy" to cure himself and make his gut feel better.

I have always heard that they do it when something is lacking in their diet, but who knows why really

Per our health guru Deb (geisthexe):
Dogs that go outside and eat grass do this for 2 reasons.
1. To get rid of the Acid in there system.
2. To get vit A & fiber in there stomach/system
