My dog eats everything, what to do?

06 Oct 2010 | by | Posted in: Q&A

A dog that eats inedible substances suffers from pica. The occasional ingestion of grass, systematically followed by vomiting, is not caused by any psychological problem or dietary deficiency and even if the dog seems to vomit on purpose at times, it is merely a game.
However, if this behaviour becomes more frequent, it often signals the beginnings of gastritis (inflammation of the mucous membrane lining in the stomach).

In contrast, true pica is indicated if the dog licks walls or the ground or eats dirt and usually corresponds to a depressive syndrome. A dog suffering from pica should be treated and his living arrangements should be changed immediately, as they are often a cause.
