• Some veterinary doctors say that anemia and bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract also cause dogs to eat grass and dirt.
• Eating grass can also be behavioral issue in your dog. In this, dogs can develop obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) regarding the grass and start eating the grass.

 How to stop your dog from eating grass?
You can follow below mentioned methods to stop your dog from eating grass:
• If you suspect that your dog is eating grass because he is bored, then make sure your pooch is getting enough exercise and engage him in some fun activities.
• In case of nutritional deficiency, you should switch to a better dog food; especially a high-fibre food could help alleviate this problem.
Most pet experts agree that eating grass is not harmful, but one thing to keep in mind is that certain pesticides and herbicides used on lawns can be toxic to your pooch, especially if ingested.
