Dogs vomit for a myriad of reasons. Right before a dog is about to vomit they will make a really sad face with their lips pursed and ears down. It’s pathetic. That’s when you wish it was you and not them. They could’ve eaten something that didn’t agree with them, ingested a toxin from the environment, perhaps they ate too fast or there could be an underlying serious medical condition. Often times dogs eat grass when they feel that their bodies are out of balance. As long as the grass is not treated with harmful pesticides, allow them to eat it. The latter acts as a demulcent for the food or objects that needs to be brought up. Vomiting is a way to void the body of whatever toxins that are there.
