AS THE WARM WEATHER
CONTINUES SO DO THE GRASS SEEDS -
KEEP A LOOK OUT!
As this beautiful warm weather
continues the grass and the fields
get drier and drier leading to dogs
getting grass seeds in various areas
- key places to keep a check on are
eyes, ears and between toes - any

Signs of a grass seed can also include
a dog rubbing its eye, shaking its
head or constant licking.
