Birdseed is something that dogs will eat because they are either hungry or interested, and in most circumstances, this behavior is not harmful to the dog.To prevent dogs from eating birdseed, it is preferable to either keep them away from the seed, make the location unpleasant for them to be in, or provide them with an alternative.It’s possible that the dog will think the seeds are food, especially if they are scattered around the ground.
It’s possible for dogs to give themselves an upset stomach if they consume a large quantity of seeds all at once. They are even capable of causing an obstruction in the digestive track, which can result in bloat, which is a very dangerous illness that needs quick care from a veterinarian.
