A:Yorkie x Jack Russell who is eating a lot of grass PetPlanet Vets PPAdmin email@example.com
I don't think you should be unduly concerned. There is a general belief that dogs eat grass in order to make themselves sick, however the usual case is that some dogs actually enjoy the taste of fresh, sweet grass, and take every opportunity to eat it. As the stomach of the dog is not designed to cope with long fibre this often (but not always) results in their being sick. As your dog is healthy in every other respect, you don't need to worry. Hope this is helpful,
