Why Dogs Eat Grass


Does your dog like to nibble on the grass? According to this article from Pet Place, offers up several theories, though the definite answer isn't really clear.

Do dogs eat the grass to make themselves vomit when they're ill? Or does eating the grass simply something they like and then leads to vomiting. Many vets feel it's the latter, that dogs are simply following their ancestors who lived in the wild, and enjoy nibbling on some grass.

Though the act itself if relatively harmless, eating grass that has been treated with pesticides or other chemicals is dangerous to your pet.

What about doggies like me who like to eat wood chips? Well I don't really eat them, I chew a few times and then I throw them. Then I snack on the grass.

Penny was as sick as a... well... as a dog, yesterday evening. She threw up her dinner and then seemed to throw up her breakfast, then later again and another time. By then it was midnight and we went outside. She ate loads of grass, long strands, and immediately threw it back up, in a white froth.

I feel sure in this case she did it to make herself throw up.

Yet on warm days I see her licking grass, nibbling little tips, and then I think it's to get moisture.

We can only speculate about the reason why dogs eat grass. Ask any dog and if he/she could talk, the answer would be "it's instinctive", or maybe "hey, it's just a dog thing".
Dogs have good taste just like people do. They always want to look their best. That's why if they could they would all visit http://www.petmust.com for cute dog clothes, petcharming pet supplies.

My dog does the same thing every once in a while and I just figure he doesn't feel good. Anyway that's what I've always heard. If you fuss at him with a "no" he just looks at me as if to say "what?" "Don't bother me right now." Instinct is wonderful in animals and I believe that we all can learn alot from them. If eating grass don't fix the problem, then it's time to visit your veterinarian for treatment before the sickness gets out of hand. No matter what situation has caused the illness, pet insurance is the answer. Check out www.Petguardianangel.com and www.Petsafetyblog.com

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.deutafilm.ru]buy generic viagra online in canada[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
