Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Everyone has their own pet theory regarding the real reasons dogs eat grass, the reason that’s clearly, obviously right. Looking at about 1,500 dogs (which is huge by veterinary study standards – we’re usually lucky to get 40 or 50 dogs enrolled), they found that somewhere between 70 and 80 percent of dogs ate grass, usually weekly.
Less than ten percent of dogs were reported to be ill around the time of eating grass, and less than a quarter of them vomited afterwards. If you’ve noticed your dog vomiting after eating grass, it’s natural to assume that one caused the other because these things are linked in a short timeframe.
They do postulate that the roughage in the grass may have helped ancestral dogs rid themselves of worms, but there’s no science behind this theory.


If your dog is losing weight, vomits or has diarrhea regularly, then it doesn’t matter how much grass they’re eating – they need a checkup with your vet. I’d have to say this lines up with my experience as my dumb-happy and lovable three-legged dog, Rocco, can usually be seen out in the yard, noshing on some greenery about once a week. If they’re eating grass to make themselves vomit (presumably so they’ll fit into that little black Dolce & Gabbana number), then they’ve picked a pretty inefficient way to go about it.
The vast majority of dogs who eat grass are feeling just fine, thanks very much, and don’t get all whoopsy afterwards. Try this little experiment: Turn your TV to Golden Girls for one solid week, then note if your dog vomits.


Most pesticides are safe for dogs and kids to walk on when dry, but I’d be pretty nervous about letting my dog eat grass that was recently sprayed with anything, dry or not.
