    Eating weeds and grass

    Jack tends to be really sneaky when he goes out to potty and tries to eat one specific weed. Itís Florida Pulsey. I canít find a lot on it. Itís says that itís not toxic to humans which doesnít mean anything. If we look away for a moment he goes crazy trying to eat it. Then he gets really slobbery and kinda foams at the mouth a bit. He hasnít thrown up but itís definitely a concern.

    Eek. I don't know anything about this...there is a pet poison control hotline but I think it costs $1 and you can live chat with a vet if you needed to.

    That's crazy, i can find much info on it either, it is also called Florida Snow or Mexican Clover. Here is a list of poisonous and non-poisonous plants from the ASPCA. It is not on the list. I would try to kill the weed and rid your lawn of it as it will take over your yard. Plus since we don't know for sure, I would keep him out of it. https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/anima...ogs-plant-list

    Re: Eating weeds and grass

    Thank you for all the help. The difficulty in removing is that it basically is my entire backyard. I live on the beach just north of Daytona and itís the only thing that grows here for the most part. I just have to watch him. The few times that he has gotten in to it, his mouth gets all slobbery and foamy. Then he does this little thing with his jaw like heís muttering something. Hasnít gotten sick but I donít want to chance it.
