Just a reminder to keep looking out for grass seeds in pets’ paws, ears and underbellies. We recommend grooming your dog after walks to stop grass seeds becoming lodged where they shouldn’t. The awns have little barbs that are painful and can make grass seed removal tricky.
This photo is of poor Mojo who came in to see us, really unusually with a grass seed stuck in his gum. Mojo needed sedation in order for us to remove the offending foreign body. Only a small awn but looked so sore!
