Why Dogs Eat Grass: How To Train Them To Stop

为什么狗狗们会吃草:怎样通过训练矫正这种行为


    Our dogs often do things that we struggle to understand. One of those things is eating grass. While we may feed our dogs a perfectly well balanced diet and provide them with all the stimulation they need, they may still take to consuming grass. There are many theories behind just why our canine friends impersonate cows chewing cud, and we are going to take a shot at the reasoning behind them.

    我们的狗狗经常会做一些让人难以理解的事情,比如吃草。也许我们已经给狗狗们提供了完美无缺的均衡饮食和各种新鲜好玩的东西,但它们可能还是会去吃草。有许多理论分析尝试着解释为什么我们的犬科小伙伴会像牛一样去嚼草,这篇文章将试着分析该行为背后的原因所在。


    First it is important to focus on the situations where grass eating should be prevented at all costs. The most important of these situations is when grass has been treated with any type of chemical. In most public parks and locations when grass has been treated with pesticides or other chemicals, companies are required to display warning signs so that pet owners can keep their dogs off the grass completely. Not only can dogs ingest these chemicals through eating the grass but they can also lick them off the pads of their feet after walking on contaminated grass. When grass has been treated with any type of chemical dogs should ALWAYS be steered away from the affected area. Pesticides and herbicides are noted for being one of the leading causes of pet poisoning that lands pets in the veterinarians office.

    首先,我们应当注意在何种情况下必须阻止狗狗吃草,这相当重要。最重要的一种情况,就是草地有喷洒过药物。在大多数公园绿地以及公共场所,如果草地有被喷洒过杀虫剂或其他药物,那么负责公司必须设置警示牌,以保证动物主人能够使狗狗远离该区域。狗狗们不仅可以通过吃草来摄取这些药物,它们从污染的草地上走过后,通过舔舐脚垫,也能够摄取。如果草地有被喷洒过任何一种药物,那么我们必须让狗狗们远离该污染区。对狗狗们来说,杀虫剂和除草剂是引起中毒的常见原因,这样的情况在动物医院很多

    Secondly, when a dog is consuming grass and vomiting as a result, they should be prevented from eating grass. As with humans, repeated vomiting can cause damage to the internal organs and teeth of the dog. When a dog consumes grass and vomits fairly quickly afterwards, it may not mean that there is anything physically wrong with the dog, but it is important to try to find out whether there is an underlying concern.
    其次,如果狗狗在吃草以后呕吐,那我们应该制止吃草的行为。和人一样,狗狗反复呕吐也会损伤内脏和牙齿。如果狗狗在吃草后立即呕吐,这不一定意味着是身体上出了什么问题,但我们也应该看看是否有什么潜在的问题,这是很重要的。

The Importance of Keeping a Watchful Eye on Asymptomatic Grass Eating in Dogs
注意无病理症状的吃草行为的重要性


    Dogs that eat grass but do not show symptoms that may indicate physical illness can be allowed to perform this behavior with a watchful eye on the grass being eaten. In addition to the fact that many grasses contain pesticides and herbicides that can cause illness, many times grasses can also contain fecal residue from dogs with parasites such as hookworms. Many of these types of parasites can still remain living in even the smallest amount of waste residue and when the contaminated grass is consumed, the parasite takes up residence in the consuming dog’s intestinal tract causing an active infection that must be treated.

    如果狗狗有不表现任何病理症状的吃草行为,那我们不必阻止,但在它们吃草时要注意观察。除了含有杀虫剂和除草剂的草地会使狗狗生病外,常见的另一种致病因素,就是其他带有寄生虫的狗狗的粪便污染,比如钩虫。即使在极少量的残留排泄物中,许多这种类型的寄生虫都可以保持活力。当狗狗吃了被污染的草后,那些寄生虫就会定居于肠道,导致活动性感染(?),必须通过治疗干预。


注1.【such as hookworms】这句,不知道放哪里比较合适……

注2.【active infection】是神马意思啊啊啊啊(┳_┳)... 活动性感染?严重感染?活力强的感染?
