Wll done for taking on a rescue GSD Smile

Which rescue did she come from?

Dogs generally eat grass if they have a stomach upset and it is a way of clearing/cleaning their stomach. How long has she been doing it?

I would ring your vets then I think. Better to be safe than sorry.

Has her diet changed at all? Or could she have got hold of chemicals, cleaning fluids?

If she is otherwise fine you could try giving her an Actimel with her food.
But as Chris said better safe than sorry, and maybe a trip to the vets would be a good idea.

Kye does this sometimes.

When are you feeding her, and what time is she normally sick?

Kye has 3 feeds, morning between 600-730 depending on walks (dried with nature diet), tea between 530-7 (raw mince/bones), depending on walks, and a small supper of dried food (about 60grams) between 930-1030

If he misses his supper (before we found this solution) he's prone to being sick in the early hours. He just makes too much stomach acid to last that long.

He also does the same if he's had any wheat based food (ie bread dropped by birds in garden for example - i do my best!) as he's wheat intollerant. But the bread also comes back. On these occasions I mix in live yoghurt into his food for a few days, as he also gets the runs.

He's been checked by vets, who found nothing wrong with him to cause this
