Grass Seeds & Hairy Dogs

June 29, 2018 | by kate.allen@hooknortonvets.co.uk | Pets

Our Small Animal Vets have been dealing with lots of grass seeds that are causing problems for dogs (particularly really hairy ones!).

The images above are of a Cocker Spaniel who had to be sedated to remove a grass seed from his ear. The vets checked his feet and every toe had as many as ten grass seeds embedded in the webbing. These seeds can and do penetrate the skin and because they are arrow shaped they then can only go one way – into your pet.

The advice is to shave out furry paws if you have long haired dogs and check them daily, enabling you to enjoy those long summer walks!
