Why Staffy Eats Grass

Why does Your Staffy Eat grass?

Everyone knows that Staffy, and every dog as well, is a predator by nature. Consequently, meat is staple in its diet. But dogs live with a man for a long time and have learned to adapt well to changes in their normal diet. Domestic dogs can eat vegetables, fruits and adapt to any food that will be provided them by an owner. But preparing your four-legged pet's diet you should not forget that your Staffordshire Bull Terrier is not a herbivore. But despite the fact that a dog can be called omnivorous animal, it is still necessary to understand that meat should be the basis of its food.

Most Staffy owners have a question - why do dogs eat grass? There are several assumptions in this respect.

  • Often, dogs eat grass to cause vomiting. Your Staffy swallows stems, leaves and grass without chewing that causes irritation and leads to vomiting. Thus, the animal clears the gastrointestinal tract.

  •  Some dogs eat grass, not having problems with the gastrointestinal tract. It is possible that your Staff Bull gets missing vitamins with grass. Some dogs just like the smell and taste of grass.

If you noticed that your Staffy began to eat a lot of grass, then you need to correct its diet. Include more vegetable fibers (green beans, cabbage, etc.).

The second question is asked by Staffy owners – Is grass helpful or harmful for the animal?

Grass is not necessary food supplement, but it is not toxic (if not treated with pesticides, chemicals, herbicides, etc.) Therefore, if your SBT eats grass, do not forbid it to do it.

The prohibition applies only to Staffies that have serious problems with the gastrointestinal tract and is keeping a strict diet. Eating grass in large amounts by such dogs can cause worsening of the animal’s health.
