    My Shepherd has a new habit, during his morning walk he eats grass and then throws up… It usually happens just in the morning, he does not do this during later day walks.
    He eats a Raw diet, from Barf plus a mix that I make( Yams, fruit, Oats, seeds, Plus Quartered raw chicken…he is a really active and otherwise healthy… you would never think he was 12 yrs old.
    Is this morning ritual symptomatic of something or is it OK?

    Hi Raina-

    Although this symptom isn’t diagnostic of anything per se, it is frequently an early warning sign that he is having some mild nausea. Of course the symptom has to be placed in context of everything else going on with Max. Perhaps he just likes nibbling on the new Spring growth of grass….?

    We will address this further when we follow-up at our next visit. Knowing his history, I bet that this is a clue as to what is happening with him energetically.
