Grass is generally safe for dogs if they eat it once in a while, however, if your dog has eaten too much grass, it’d be a good idea to check with your vet and get their opinion and perhaps ask them to check up on your dog.

What happens if dog eats too much grass?
If your dog has eaten a lot of grass, then there’s really nothing to worry about as dogs usually know what’s best for them and won’t eat too much grass.

In general, dogs can eat small amounts of grass without any problems. However, if your dog has eaten too much grass then you should contact the vet. It would be best that you don’t let them continue eating more grass in order to avoid further complications.
