    Your dog eats grass because it likes to eat grass.

    Send me $75 and I don't take checks.

    Sometimes dogs are just dogs and eat grass. My lab eats grass even though he is allergic to it. Doesn't upset his stomach, but makes his ear itching go nuts.

    Sounds like your problem is the food changing though. We went to the Nutro grain free a few years ago and found the salmon based was the best for our dog.

    Maybe the dog identifies as a cow. You should be more sensitive

    I've fed my dog Purina one stuff for the last year and never had any issues. I just buy whatever flavor they got on the shelf that day. Dog doesn't seem to mind a bit... and she doesn't eat grass. She is some kind of lazy though, yal think the Purina one could be causing that?

    All of our runs are unisex.

    some of mine eat grass, some of em don't. I had a trainer tell a friend that some dogs ate shit and some didn't, I convinced my buddy it was the pro plan he was feeding. He switched and the dog no longer ate it's own shit.
    This whole thread is comical, but this statement is just plain goofy!!

    Unisex is so 1900's. It's all multi-gendered now, I think. Or maybe it's gender neutral. Hell, it changes so much that I lose track. Maybe labhumper will chime in about it.

    as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    only thing Goofy is how Purina Pro plan states their food has a lot more nutrients than it actually does.

    Facts. Look it up.

    Mine eats grass like she is part goat and it never bothers her. I think she just likes the taste of it. I dont think the grass is your problem.

    Asked Vet about it yesterday...she said itís not uncommon. She described it exactly without much description from me...dog throws up grass (no food) and a orange/yellow type liquid at night.

    She said dogs will eat grass to try and balance the ph/acid in their stomachs. Their ph can be off because of food change or something else they ate. Most of the time grass doesnít work or itís too little too late.

    Her solution (both of her dogs have had the issue before)....10mg tablet of Pepcid/antacid....1 in morning and 1 at night.

    I asked about food and she feeds Purina One....she said thatís most likely not the problem.

    Yes. We use and recommend it for transient gastritis for 1-2 days but never recommend it as a chronic medication. Dogs need stomach acid for digestion. Blocking it's production long term es no bueno.

    Dogs like grass. Dogs eat grass. Grass is bulky and abrasive. Grass irritates stomach lining. Dog vomits grass. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    Girl Scout Cookies seems to be real GI friendly unless you over do it on the doritos.
