Eating large amount of mown grass.
I have posted frequently about Mardi's compulsion to eat almost everything she can get into her mouth and I have a new concern. I mowed the fenced acre yesterday and my property is on a continuous slope. The bottom third of the acre was very wet and even had some standing water. Mardi loves to play in the water but, hey, she IS a Lab. She was not outside while I was mowing but when I later let her into the acre she found numerous clumps of discharged heavy, thick "patties" of grass mixed with mud and water. Also, the garden tractor wheels kick up some of these clumps. The wet ground is a stress to the machine but if I don't mow often the area becomes overgrown. I have to scrape clean the deck after each use or I burn out a belt. These grass patties will continue every time it rains. Raking is not a possibility at my advanced age. When I had four Siberians out in the acre one of them would eat a few of the patties and it didn't make her sick. However, Mardi constantly eats non-food items and I am concerned about how many of these patties she gulped before I noticed what she was doing. I haven't let her loose in the acre since then and that is a shame because she runs happily all over the space and then settles down to play endless fetch with me. Does anyone know if eating large amounts of mown and muddy grass is a danger to her?
