My dogs cheek was all puffed up we assumed it was a rotten tooth. But, it turned out he was eating sticker burrs! Poor guy probably was pulling them out of his fur.

You obviously need to feed your dog if he is having to eat grassburrs to survive


Never seen that before

We've seen our dog eat sandburs too. I don't know why they do that. You'd think it would hurt coming out.

I woulda stopped after that first burr got stuck, but what do I know...I'm not a dog.

Just gonna have to do a mouth sweep from time to time, but hopefully they will soften up a bit as I see many pricks in your future.

How much to find out it wasn't a bad tooth from the vet...their bills always always amaze me?? Also, you need to touch up your nails!!

We took our dog into the vet last month and one of the things we brought up was she was dumb enough tto consume large amounts of stickers and then choke and cough. Im gonna show my dog these pictures maybe she will learn.

He was not eating them he was pulling them out of his paws. I have grass burs at my place and I have two standard poodles. They step on them and get them caught in the hair all the time. The burs get caught in their teeth when they pull them out. Been dealing with that for years.

Probably not. Timing is everything and they need to be sprayed before they produce the seed heads. Generally, spray in mid spring - March.

I saw one dog (Labrador) years ago that died from peritonitis (infection in the abdomen around the organs). On autopsy, found one speargrass (foxtail) seed that had been swallowed and migrated through the intestinal wall.

Both sandburs and speargrass can be nasty.
