Default Grass seeds - the dog hurtin' kind

Grass seeds, something... heard many names. Have a lot in the yard and they get in the dog's paws or ears and can get embedded and need surgery. Does anyone know how to get rid of them? Stupid new lawn...

These things...



And the wonderful dog for the hell of it...

Roundup, 2-4D and a little Dishsoap would do the trick-

Dish Soap is a surfactant (it will keep the 2,4-D and the Roundup on the plant if it rains)-the 2,4-D will knock it down, and the Roundup will finsih the job-(Farmers use this formula)-

By the way, I know the Woman in my Avy, she is a Drag Racer (avid) and a part time Model for Drag Racing and other stuff-she has a Toyota Supra that is very fast-she's really a nice person, and my kinda girl-

Good luck with those foxtails and a dog with shaggy hair like that. I would use the round up trick that previous poster talked about. Might want to shave the hair around the dog's feet.

Weed and feed by scotts

you need to put it down and then I would water twice and let it dry before letting te dog on the grass.

Makes your grass look really nice while still killing weeds

First Good for you man!

Second a friend told be a bleach water solution in a weed sprayer works good. I want to say he said 32 to 1 but that might be what I mix my boat gas at. I call him and check.

Vinagar works pretty good also but that might take a lot with a big yard.

If you use round up or 2-4-d be careful you don't let your dog outside for a few days. They will absorb that stuff threw there paws.

Just cost me over $600 for surgery after this border collie stepped on a foxtail. Burrowed in between her toes, traveled up the inside of her foot & came out on her leg leaving abscesses along the way.

Long hair dogs a lot of work. That's why I own one of these. No Sticker or hair problems. Plus he wears good shirts.

I've heard that antifreeze works great in this situation. Just a good dose in his watering bowl.

Actually, I always liked you. I cut you more slack than I cut anybody on this forum and take a lot of crap for it. I shouldn't though. You've taken advantage of it and have turned into the biggest whiner on the forum (Between you and Dragster, it's hard to tell which whines the most).

It was actually just a joke that I got from Chiefs Planet. They recommend anti-freeze for every problem, from pets to teenagers.

You should lighten up.
