    Your dog eats grass. Does he lack vegetables or vitamins? If not, why does he do it?

    Why Do Dogs Eat Grass?

    The grass-eating is purely and simply the dog’s method of making himself sick and relieving some indisposition of the digestion. Bilious dogs do it to get rid of the excessive bile built up in the stomach and, after being sick, will very often feel quite all right and be ready for a meal.

    Some dogs left to wander in the countryside eat all sorts of greenstuffs, which is taken to mean that they lack vegetables in their diet. A dog adequately fed does not indulge in this habit.
