Try as we might to discourage it, some Cavalier King Charles Spaniels simply have a love of eating grass!
As it turns out, it’s quite common and because while it generally doesn’t cause enough problems for most veterinarians to raise a concern. Of course, if the grass isn’t in your own yard that you know is free of herbicides and pesticides – there should always be a concern that the grass your Cavalier is consuming is infused with potentially toxic chemicals … so we suggest erring on the side of caution and discouraging grazing as much as possible.
WebMD recently published an excellent article on their website about why dogs eat grass and it not only covers many possible reasons from boredom to pica, it provides some excellent solutions to help them kick the grass habit. You’ll find that article an interesting read by CLICKING HERE.
Hope everyone is keeping cool and having a great summer!
