Willy eats grass and throws it up... daily!
OK, so maybe it's not daily, but it's been 2 out of the past 3 days and we can't seem to get him to stop.
Willy is just 1 year old, and every morning he goes out in the yard (before breakfast). He's often a slow eater, sometimes waiting until mid-morning to eat his breakfast (2 meals a day, 1/2 cup Avoderm each).
He's done this in the past, but more lately, where he sits at the edge of the lawn and eats grass (I've even seen ants where he hangs out). Then he doesn't eat his breakfast and a few hours later, throws up this lovely yellowish goop with blades of grass in it. He then drags around the house the rest of the day, and may slowly eat his dinner... but not always.
How do I teach him that eating grass is not good! I have tried keeping him inside until he has his own breakfast, but he's stubborn and will even skip a meal if he really doesn't want to. And really... In can't keep him inside all day, he loves being outside and watching people go by (so he can bark and wag at them).
Any ideas? We've tried "juicing" up his food to make it more appealing (a little cheese, a little chicken), but as I said, he's stubborn.
