Grass spikes occur every year, especially around the summer, in flowering grass along the roads and meadows. They can cause a lot of problems in dogs. They are also called crawlers, because their anatomy means they can only crawl in one direction, namely deeper and deeper into the body. Barbs on the grass cutter prevent the grass cutter from going out easily again. Due to their sharp point, they easily drink through the skin. They mainly cause problems in the ears, between the toes, in the skin or in the nose. Once the grass has absorbed the body, the body considers it a foreign object. The body responds with inflammation. There is often redness, pain, swelling and sometimes fever.
