Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • Both my cats and dogs seem to like to eat grass. Is it bad for them?

    Pets eat different things for different reasons, including but not limited to, taste or texture, nutritional deficiency, boredom, lack of chew toys, etc. 

    It is important to ensure your pet is on a high quality diet such as Royal Canin or Science Diet and has plenty of appropriate chew toys and is not exposed to a lot of this material (grass/wood) unsupervised as ingesting it could make him ill.  Take your pets in for a veterinary exam yearly as well as any time you notice that they feel ill.
