Why do dogs eat on grass, like horses or cows do?

Report as

Dogs eat grass mainly to vomit and in turn the vomiting gets what ever is causing their stomach to hurt. But they do also use grass as a food source.

I think dogs mainly eat grass because they have an upset tummy and they are trying to make it feel better.

They say they do it when their stomach is upset so they can throw up! But I've seen dogs eat it with out puking! My buddy's dog actually eats grass all the time!!

Dogs usually eat grass when not feeling well. The grass will make him throw up, relieving his tummy ache. Horses eat grass for food, however, care must be taken not to feed large serving of WET grass (or WET hay). Difficult to digest, horses cannot puke to ease stomach distress (called "colic"). Call vet asap. Extremely serious, yes, death could result. Force him to stand up, if he lies; he dies. Get him up on his feet and walk, walk, walk him, don't stop till vet arrives. (walking helps digestion, more importantly keeps gut from twisting up killing him.)
