My dog is eating grass and throwing up
I have a lab and for the last 2 days she keeps eating grass and then throwing up the grass & yellow liquid (bile?).
I really cant afford a trip to the vet.

Anyone know what I can do for her?

I have given her a little bit of peanut butter bread and she seems to be able to keep it down. The poor thing is sick.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
feed you dog some PLAIN yogurt

then put it on a diet of rice and ground turkey for a couple of days.

The yogurt should fix the issue

What kind of dog food are you feeding?

My mix lab i just got eats grass all the time. Even the clumped dead grass my mower throws out. She loves that shit. Vet said it's like a soothing agent for their stomach. Wish she would eat the Gdamn dandelions growing all over.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
Is the grass clean? its not something covered with weedkiller and the like is it?

If so you should be ok, dog probably has a dodgy stomach, practically every single dog eats grass and throws up.

Just put some food out and keep and eye on him/her.

When i take my dog out i don't let her eat anything from outside. She tries to eat an accasional stick or something but i just get her a big ass bone and she's good to go for a few days, Black labs have to chew on something or they'll go crazy, so you might try substiting the grass with a bone or chew toy.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
Sometimes they do eat grass when they have an upset stomach.
Try not to let her eat it, see if you can get her food with a higher level of fibre, she could be trying to compensate for a lack in her diet.

For her tummy, chicken is easy going.
Give her plenty of fluids and don't be too alarmed at the vomiting, she's working it out.
However if she seems unusally lazy/lethargic you should get her checked.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
It is VERY IMPORTANT that animals have access to edible grass to chew. In Nature, they will Understand what herbs to eat as well, But do make sure that there has not been any chemicals put on the lawn where they are consuming this. They naturally Know what to do to help themselves,,,and if you prevent them from getting what they need they will chew anything else to help themselves - but this is not good for them or you!!!

All the replies so far are good but this could be the beginning of pancreatitis if it doesn't clear up in a few days it could get serious, in the meantime a light diet is called for.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
Grass is an alkaline antacid for dogs they eat it when they have acid in the stomach to soak up the acid then they puke it up.
Which can be caused by being sick, eating something bad or just indigestion.

I've heard the same, they eat it if they feel sick to the stomach. But all the dogs I've own have eaten grass and lived to a ripe old age. Nothing to worry about.

Be glad, dogs and cats do this in the spring because the grass contains every vitimin from a to z, the same reason people drink wheatgrass, you will get the runs in any case this is a normal reaction to eating grass or drinking it's juice. Ever notice how a large animal like a cow or buffalo can grow to maturity on grasses, grass is good for you.

CHANGE YOUR DOG FOOD

We were feeding our pup NUTRO for years, then all of sudden started vomiting like your pup. Tracked it down to the food, dont know what they changed but they did something. Went to Ekanuba (or however it is spelled) and it fixed it overnight.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
Get yourself a homeopathic rememdy called Columbrina or Nux Vomica and keep it on hand. Get 30CH strength for your doggie and when he has a stomach upset ... dose him. You'll find it works quickly and well.

I treat my pets 90% of the time with homeopathic remedies... because they work are gentle and because there are no side-effects.

PS- you also can use it when you have an upset stomach... I do.

Re: My dog is eating grass and throwing up
you can also feed the dog corn leaves.
Thisaccording to a book by Dr Pitcairn who is a vet.
It used to be called "dog grass"
Prob just has upset tummy they eat grass for that reason, it makes them vomit.
Cats often do this to remove hairballs.
