Dear easipetcare friends,
Grass seed injuries are a common problem for dogs during summer months. When examined closely, some grass seeds resemble tiny arrowheads which attach themselves easily to an animal's fur and burrow into the skin. Breeds with hairy ears and hairy feet are more at risk if walked in meadows or woodlands where these grasses commonly grow in abundance. In the summer months please check your dog for grass seeds after walks. If a grass seed becomes embedded into their skin they may need surgery to remove it.
We very much hope you and your four-legged friend have a risk free spring/summer ahead.
