Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Dog behavior is often a mystery to owners, but eating grass and then throwing up is undoubtedly one of the strangest things dogs do. Because many dogs eat grass when their stomachs hurt, it's not uncommon for a dog to eat grass and then immediately throw up.
Occasional, short-lived bouts of vomiting are usually not cause for concern and may be due to bad food or a temporary stomach bug. Eating grass usually isn't a problem, but frequent vomiting can indicate a condition that requires veterinary attention.
However, if you're visiting a new area and aren't sure if the grass has been sprayed with pesticides, don't allow your dog to eat it.

But if your dog vomits for more than 24 hours, can't keep down any food or has frequent bouts of vomiting several times a week or month, consult your veterinarian. Wild carnivores, including wolves, often eat grass when they eat their prey, so dogs may eat grass to make up for deficiencies in their diet. It's also possible some types of grass help to induce vomiting and eliminate bad foods from your dog's stomach. Otherwise, chemicals on the grass could poison your dog and may be the reason he's vomiting. In short, the grass may induce vomiting or grass-eating may be more likely with a dog who is already going to vomit.

Some fertilizers can also cause problems for dogs, so avoid using any chemicals on grass you know your dog might eat. Veterinarians have different opinions about why exactly they do this, but there may be chemicals in grass that ease an upset stomach. Alternatively, it could be that dogs are just trying grass looking for something that could soothe their tummies.
