Why do dogs eat grass?

Probably all dogs eat grass. It can be said that this is normal. Dog's wild relatives loves plants - wolves, coyotes ...

Approximately in six percent of the wolf excrement find plants, 7% of the leopard likes vegetable food, often grass-type plants. Many of us think why dog eats grass? After all, it seems that the grass is food for cows, not dogs, which are originated from predators. The unanimous answer for this behavior is not - may be a lot of different reasons why a dog with pleasure eats grass.
Grass eating is considered normal and usual dog behavior. Dogs don't swallow grass like crazy, they are slowly chewing grass, seems to enjoy the taste. The grass is really tasty - she is sweet and for dogs are acceptable grass texture. But dogs do not always eat it just for the taste, sometimes they do it out of boredom.

It may sound strange, but dogs eventually are able to select the plants they like and which they don't like. Botanists seeing this, some plants names linked with dogs, for example orchard grass (Dactylis glomerata), that has a number of useful substances for dogs - vitamins and minerals. This grass attracts the dogs for a pleasant sweetish taste, in addition, it improves the dog's breath.
Dogs are adaptable carnivores. They eat anything that can satisfy their basic nutritional requirements. Plants can be used as an alternative nutrient source - without meat, dog will spud land, chew the stems or search fruit. Even predators with food gets a little plant because they are often prey devours all guts. Also, sometimes wolves after killing eat the bloody grass.
There is another theory that the dogs enjoy the grass because their rations lacks fiber. These dog owners are advised to feed dogs forage for obese or elderly dogs (they have more fiber) or to give fresh vegetables (preferably crushed by crushers), another alternative is in to the food add little bran. A perfect example is one of the official investigation - the dog every day for seven years ate grass and vomited, but three days after he received foods with more fiber, the dog stopped to eat grass and vomit.
Inclination to eat grass may also affect the dog's satiety. Examination of the twelve of about six years of age dogs that were fed a balanced meal, it turned out that the more often they ate grass till forage.
When a dog is sick, even if he does not like the grass, still looking for her. Then the dog is eating grass not with pleasure, but he is swallowing do not chew, as he seeks to irritate the stomach. Grass can be a natural remedy, which helps flatulence, increased stomach acidity, nausea, or digestive disorders. Dogs can eat grass when they have worms. It may be that the herb may help to clear intestinal parasites.

The survey, which was participated by about 3,000 people, which grows dogs, showed that 68 percent of people said that dogs eat grass on a every day or at least once a week, 8 percent of people said that dogs eat grass before the dogs sick, 28 percent said that after that dogs vomiting.
If thousands of years dogs eat grass, so you do not need to worry if your dog eats it. In rare cases, eating grass means something more serious disorder. Only you have to be sure that the grass is not contaminated by chemicals. If not, you can let the dog enjoy the grass.
