My yellow lab Daisy is 5 years old. Now that Spring is here, she loves to play outside. We have a large yard full of fresh green grass. She loves to run and follow the lawnmower, which is a pleasure to watch. But – she’s also a huge fan of eating the grass after it’s been mowed. Inevitably, she ends up puking her guts out later that evening. She seems otherwise healthy, but I am concerned. What would you guys do in my shoes? Does anyone have experience with this?

Hi Ire,

I’m sorry that Daisy isn’t feeling well. Dogs will often eat grass to clean out their stomach, this is not unusual. If this has been going on for a while, you should definitely see your vet. We’ve got several articles that cover the vomiting topic, just do a search on our site on throwing up or a similar phrase (the search box is in the sidebar on the top right).
