So I'm going to assume from Nolu's response that a drain field = a leach field.

The grass that grows over your septic system is BAD NEWS! It pulls all of the waste, and chemicals, and other gross out of your septic. You're not supposed to plant veggies anywhere near a leach field because it's bad for us. I'd suggest not letting your dogs eat that grass. Yucky yucky

LOL no I don't let them graze but they sneak a nibble here and there as we walk past.

It's not the waste I'm concerned about, it's the many, many chemicals in that grass. It's probably a lot like eating grass grown with meth.

I would restrict them from doing that.. either keep them on shorter leashes or teach a good "leave it." Even if they only get a few mouthfuls a week, it's not good.

Whether they "need" it or not, all of mine get 1/4 cup of veggie slurry with every meal. All are in optimum condition, tone and health, so it must not be too bad for them. Unless you are purchasing whole carcases (not processed at all), you are not providing the diet that a wild canine would naturally have in the wild. The best that we can hope for is to come close.

I actually feed my dog some vegies once in a while. Actually, all veggies and fruits are good for dogs except for onions, garlic, avocado, and grapes which are considered "toxic." Too much green vegetables is not too healthy for dogs.

I have heard MANY conflicting stories about garlic, and I actually feed it as a natural flea and tick repellent.

Does it work for repelling fleas and ticks? What form is the garlic in? Mine don't have any fleas but I would love to not have to make a trip to the vet for flea meds.
