Many dogs (especially puppies) explore the world through their mouths. Because they do not have hands like us, dogs often explore new items by eating it! Other studies suggest that your pup may be eating grass in order to supplement their diet that may be lacking in nutrition, minerals, or fiber. Other times, they may graze to improve their digestion. If your pup continues to exhibit this behavior, and shows signs of vomiting, consult your local Vet.
