    DefaultEating Grass and Puppy Food?!?!

    Our new puppy, Nala wants to eat grass ALL the time. When we're outside she just wants to graze like a little cow the whole time. Is this normal? Is it bad? Should I try to stop it?

    Also, I am reading so many differing opinions on puppy food. What do you think is the best (most affordable) dog food for her? I saw the Innova and thought it looked GREAT, but we just can *not* spend that much money on dog food. So, what's your advice?

    Puff has always eaten grass -- much more often in the spring. She's selective about finding just the right blades.

    (Prices for the same product will differ from one chain to another becauseof different markups. So it may be worthwhile to comparison shop.)

    My three labs have always grazed on grass and never gotten sick from it. So, I just let them eat it. I couple week ago I asked the same question about dog food brands. If you do a search, you should find my post and replies.
