Now is the season when there is an increased risk of problems to your pet associated with grass seeds. This can also prove to be expensive in veterinary bills, and it is wise to be on the alert for signs of distress in your dog.
· Check between each toe after every walk
· Avoid walking in areas with long grass
· Check in and around the ears after every walk
· Regularly trim hair between toes and around the ears
· Weekly cleaning of ears
Head held to one side
Chewing at paw

As always, consult your vet if your dog has a problem which may be attributed to a grass seed. Grass seeds can migrate further into the body and cause a more serious problem.
