Beware of Grass Seeds

Make sure to check your dog's feet for grass seeds after walks. 

They can get caught in the fur and as they are shaped like little arrows they burrow and bury themselves into the skin. 

If not caught in time they can actually work their way into their feet by puncturing the skin and travel up the dog's legs. This is obviously extremely painful and in some cases can be fatal as they can work their way into internal organs and cause infections and permanent damage.
