Not all grass-eating is cause for alarm. While some dogs graze for nutritional reasons or digestive needs, others do it out of boredom or pica.
Occasionally, dogs eat grass to soothe an upset stomach or aid digestion. If this is a concern, consult your vet to rule out any underlying medical issues.
Some dogs lack essential nutrients in their diet, leading them to seek them out in the grass. Consider switching to a high-quality dog food with your vet's guidance.
A bored dog is more likely to seek out unusual activities like grass-eating. Provide ample physical and mental stimulation through walks, playtime, and interactive toys.
Divert your dog's attention from the grass with healthy and delicious alternatives like carrot sticks, apple slices, or commercially available dog treats made from safe vegetables.
Train your dog with the "leave it" command to redirect their attention from the grass. They start grazing, firmly say "leave it" and offer them a treat as a reward for stopping.
Closely supervise your dog during outdoor time and limit their access to areas with tempting grass. Consider using a leash or fenced-in yard to control their environment.
