Blue kross seeds

Typically, with a grass seed in the paw, owners will notice a painful swelling between the toes.

Dogs who have seeds stuck inside their paws are also likely to lick at them constantly and vigorously and be limping. Your dog may suddenly start shaking their head and pawing at their ear after a walk if they have got one or more seeds down the ear. Sudden onset violent sneezing may mean a seed in the nose.

What dogs are at risk of problems with grass seeds?

Grass seeds are a common problem, particularly during the summer months. They are attached to the tops of long grass stems and can easily brush off onto your dog during walks. Although tiny, they have the potential to cause real pain to your dog. The seeds have pointy ends and are very sharp so they easily become trapped in a dog’s fur and can burrow down the coat to pierce the skin. Unfortunately, in rare cases, the grass seed can go under the skin and travel to other areas of the body. They have even been known to end up in the chest area. The seeds can also get stuck in eyes and ears. Once they start travelling around the body they can be very difficult to find.

All dogs can be affected by grass seeds, but they cause much more of a problem in breeds with feathery toes that enjoy bounding through long grass, such as springer spaniels. It is a good idea for owners to check the bits of their dogs with long hair, in particular the feet and ears, after exercise – especially if you have walked through areas with long grass.

Is there anything I can do to protect my dog from grass seeds?

Keep hair around ears and paws short to minimise the risk of grass seeds sticking and burrowing into the skin. Inspecting your dog after a walk and removing any seeds will also help reduce the likelihood of any penetrating the skin.
