A summertime hazard to be aware of, while walking your dog in grassy areas, is grass seeds.

They may seem harmless but as they are small and sharp can become embedded under their skin where they can cause further problems.
Feet, toes and ears are where they are commonly be found, but can attach anywhere on their fur and burrow down to their skin or even get inside their ears, so please check your dog afterwards.

Watch out for excessive licking, discomfort or limping as they do need to be removed as soon as possible and may need vet assistance.
