Foxtails Dangerous to Dogs

Foxtail barley and Canada Wild Rye are two plants that have dangerous barbs that can penetrate into your dog’s tissues and continuously work their way deeper causing serious problems. Do not let your dog run through, sniff around, or chew on grasses with these plants mixed in. It’s a good idea to thoroughly check your dog’s entire body (including the belly, armpits, between the toes, face, and in the nostrils, ears, and mouth).
