Growing up we had two Shih Tzus who would only eat grass before throwing up. Grass and throwing up in dogs is a bit like the chicken and the egg. Which comes first? Does the dog eat grass to make themselves throw up? Or does the dog eat grass because they are going to throw up?
I always hear the phrase “dogs eat grass to throw up” or “dogs eat grass because their stomach is upset”
With Chase and Joey, we noticed something different. They would graze on the grass in the backyard all the time. They would never throw it up either!
That’s when I realized, some dogs just like the taste of grass!
I planted cat grass for Sabrina and for the dogs as well. Chase loves to smell it, as well as, eat a few pieces at a time.
P.S. Sabrina is loving her grass, it has really perked her up! She gets the winter blues, so you have to plant some grass every so often to remind her it still exists, it also takes the grumpy cat scowl off her face 😉
She was sleeping when I went to take grass pictures for the blog post so I only have ones of Chase to share:
Yay! Grass! 🙂
I can eat it on my own
But, having help is even better!
