Dog eating grass seed making dog sick?

My 2yo Red nose Pit bull has vomitted and had diarrhea on and off for a couple of days. He has eaten and kept dinner down and drinks water but one minute he’s romping around and the next he’s throwing up and will have diarrhea. He’s had his needles, he’s a week late for his 3 month worm tablet though.
I have noticed that when he’s right up the back of our new home he comes in with grass seeds stuck to his paws, neck etc. He has been licking them off and its been about the same time his vomitting and diarrhea started. I have been taking them off him since this morning but he vomitted this afternoon. After that though he was fine again.

He hasn’t lost weight but the episodes of throwing up is worrying me. Taking him to the vet is a major operation as he doesn’t like people so he has to be muzzled and held down. But I will have to if this keeps up.

My question is could it be the grass seeds?. They are very green and have a pungent smell. Some are stuck in his fur fast, others brush off.

I’m not 100% sure it’s grass seeds. If you can get a close up shot, you can run it through some apps that can visually identify the exact species. Take a very clear photo, then run it through the apps. Hope this helps!
