    Default Eating Grass

    Hi.....a quick question.

    Leo has recently started to eat grass, it's not something he's done before and I was wondering if it's something I should worry about......discourage or simply ignore.

    Thanks Mel

    Hi

    Nope dont worry all Cavaliers are closely related to sheep and cows so they all chew the cud and eat grass ,and any flowers they can get their teeth on out of my garden.

    Hi yeah ruby does it but only when her tummy is playing up(i can usually hear it gurgling)& its like a race to get to the grass so it is instinct for them. Jelly seems to eat grass just in play& any leaves she finds. I do worry about it cos who knows whats on the grass!

    Jasper occasionally eats grass but it only seems to be a certain type, my mother used to say when she had dogs that it was when they were not feeling very well, like an upset tummy, so it seems to be pretty normal for them.

    What's the difference between a new husband and a new dog? After a year, the dog is still excited to see you.

    Zoey has recently taken up the sport of eating grass too! She walks along the fence line and grabs the tall ones that the lawn mower has missed. She doesn't have an upset tummy, I just think she likes to munch on it for some strange reason. Jato looks at her like she's crazy.

    Both my dogs eat grass, too - and blackberries, plums, raspberries - no fruits are safe in my garden
