Foxtail grass is a weed that can be highly toxic for your dog. The seeds of the plant are able to travel far and wide and lodge themselves inside your dog’s ears, nose, and eyes. The seeds can even burrow into a dog’s skin, and the problem is that they’re really hard to see and remove. The seeds won’t break down once they’ve taken hold, so it can actually lead to your dog dying if you’re not super careful.

PETA gave us the following tips to ensure your dog stays safe from foxtails.
