Last year, over 100,000 horses were killed in foreign-owned slaughterhouses in the U.S., and tens of thousands more were exported to Japan, Canada and Mexico for slaughter. There is evidence to suggest that these creatures are subjected to cruel treatment prior to their deaths, including starvation, sleep deprivation, lack of water and physical abuse.

Congress is now mounting a ban on the slaughter of American horses, whose meat is shipped over our borders for human consumption in foreign countries. If you’d like to let your congresspersons know your feelings about the proposed legislation, you can reach them by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121, and reference the proposed legislation American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 503/S. 311).

While there are competing theories regarding why dogs and cats consume grass, a number of studies have yet to demonstrate a conclusive answer. Here’s a brief overview of the current speculation …

• They simply like the taste and texture of the grass and eating it provides a sense of satisfaction
• It’s an ancestral thing – prey of wild dogs and cats frequently have grasses in their intestinal system, and domesticated dogs and cats still yearn for grass in the diet
• Our companion animals know of some nutritional value in grasses that we’ve yet to uncover (like antioxidants or similar)
• They do it to provoke vomiting if they’ve eaten something that has upset their stomachs
• They are augmenting their keen sense of smell with taste to uncover more about their environments

Although we may never know the exact reason why, we do know that this is one of the most often asked questions of vets to date. If you notice excessive grass-eating with either your dog or cat, you should consult with your veterinarian.
