In today’s San Francisco Chronicle, SFVS’s Alan Stewart (internal medicine specialist) and Ella Woods (holistic clinician) teamed up to answer a reader’s question about why dogs eat nonfood items, and what to do about it:
I have a 6 1/2-month-old rat terrier/Italian greyhound mix. When outside she likes to smell flowers, then eats them. Sometimes I find her eating things like grass, another dog’s vomit, snails, just about anything! How do I stop her from putting everything in her mouth?
