Peg Vet Dr Castle: What’s With My Dog Eating Grass?

Dear Dr. Castle, 
Should I be concerned that my dog is always eating grass?
Just curious!  Stacy of Corona, CA

Dear Stacy,
We veterinarians get this question about dogs eating grass at least two to three times a week. 
Pet owners want to know, if it’s because of a nutritional deficiency? Or do they have an upset stomach? I have a French Bulldog and a black Lab and our trips to the school or park usually turn into grazing sessions.
The simple answer is : they like the taste of grass, it’s “nature’s salad bar”.
