- Why does my dog eat grass all of the time?
- Q: I’ve had other dogs that eat grass and weeds from time to time but this dog eats it constantly and it is often reflected in her poops. She is otherwise healthy, vibrant and well fed but I am curious if this is a breed issue or a sign of a potential problem.Thanks for all the great answers. My conclusion is that it is not a problem although I may try to change her food to see if maybe what she’s eating is causing her to have an upset stomach. For those who asked she’s a mixed lab and is 5 years old.
- A: Hi…As you’ve said that your dog is healthy, vibrant and well-fe, i guess there is really no problem about your dogs habit of eating grass. Dogs then, may eat grass because, in reality, it is a normal part of their diet.Many times, dogs will vomit after eating grass. Did they eat grass to make them vomit? Or did they vomit because they ate grass? It is a mystery, but it seems that some dogs may eat vegetation when they have an upset stomach.The third reason – they just like it. Some dogs have certain species of grass or plant material that they will search out and eat. We know a beagle who can pick raspberries faster than his owner.In any case, grass eating is basically a normal behavior, and is not of concern unless your dog does it excessively and is showing signs of being unhealthy.
- How do grazing animals build proteins, if they only eat grass and such?
- Q: I know this is probably a stupid question, but, according to my anatomy book, humans build proteins ONLY by absorbing amino acids from digested proteins. So, if amino acids make proteins, how can herbivores survive? I mean, cows and horses only eat grass – they don’t get any beans or tofu (which is how vegetarians get there proteins, right?) Surely any amino acids in grass would be trace at best?
- A: There are 9 different types of amino acids (which is needed for life)Humans and animals make around 5-6 in their own bodies thus, we only need 4-5 through food.I would imagine cows are adapted and there bodies make most of the amino acids themselves and would require one or two amino acids via food. Grass does contain amino acids, every living thing contains amino acids (except most bacteria and single cell organisms).
