Why does my dog eat grass?

Researchers are not completely sure why your dog eats grass although it should not be a concern since it is normal behavior. Dogs are ancestors of wild dogs, wolves and foxes that eat both meat and plants, including berries. It is believed that dogs eat the grass to soothe stomach distress by vomiting. Some Vets believe that dogs eat grass because they like it. Others believe it is because the dog’s diet is lacking in specific nutrients. As long as the grass is safe and not recently treated with fertilizers or other chemicals, feel free to let your pup nibble on grass occasionally.
