ELIOT, Maine — Dogs, like humans, get hungry. Whilst playing in the grass, they will most likely do the inevitable: chewing, eating, and enjoying the wonderful grass, flowers, and other green items that make up your front lawn.

Such innocuous activities as eating grass should never result in the dangers that some have unfortunately encountered.

Lowry’s friend began noticing strange symptoms coming from the dog, and could not find a reason for these symptoms.

After a few therapeutic and rejuvenating days at the Nikoe facility in Eliot, Maine, the dog began to recuperate from the debilitating effects that some claim Roundup has on the health of dogs. This potentially dangerous chemical that is all too often used on our perfectly manicured lawns may be showing awful impacts on pets.
