    My dog has started eating grass lately. Should I be concerned?

    • Grass chewing. Yum! So generally grass chewing comes from two areas. Either your dog just likes the taste, or he has an upset stomach. The upset stomach tends to be seen as pets get older, but can also be from having too much stomach acid. We often see this in dogs who are free fed, or eat every 12 hours or less.

    I noticed recently that my dog Satchmo’s urine seems off colored. It’s been a darker orange color for the last several days. Is this something we need to get checked out or cause for concern? Thanks for your help!

    • Hi Britta,
      It is first important to discuss how Satchmo is doing overall. Normal appetite and water intake? Any vomiting, diarrhea, or weight loss? Any increase in frequency of urination or accidents in the house? If you feel that there are any other changes occurring with Satchmo, then I would recommend a consultation with your primary…[Read more]
