I really wouldn't worry about it; there's stuff in grass that's good for them. I would keep him off of grass that's been treated with chemicals, though.

You should see my Filas. They graze like the cows sometimes!

Renee, I am glad you said that. I am beginning to think that Bula is part goat!!! Well, at least I know it's not just my dog.

What kind of food are you feeding your dog? Although it might seem that its nothing to worry about, your dog might be lacking certain vitamins or minerals that they're trying to make up for by chowing down on the green stuff.....

Ripley tries to eat grass too, but I'm paranoid about the chemicals that are on the grass, so I don't let him...

Is it true about dogs eating grass when their stomach is upset?? Just a random question off the top of my head..

I heard that dogs eat grass when their tummy is upset.. and i also noticed my Pit Bull pup chewing on grass here and there and thought to myself 'is her tummy upset?'

We feed Nova Pro Plan - the puppy formula. The place we adopted her from recommended it.

I'm not too familiar with Nova Pro Plan. I just know that most of the brands you get at the supermarket are chit...I dunno where that one comes from.
If the dog has an upset tummy I suggest giving it some light food for one or two meals...like scrambled eggs...they do wonders for dogs with upset tummies and after surgery sickness.

good luck u guys
