|What has changed? Her food? Activity, not getting the usual amount of walks and play time? People coming and going? Is she bored?
If she seems to have an actual tummy ache you might look into offering slippery elm bark. Mine is a nice smelling powder, mix ~1 tsp with about 1/4 cup water and let sit for a bit until all the water is absorbed. I smear a bit on Max's nose and after he thinks about it for a moment decides it helps and he will lap up some of it. In about 5 minutes he feels better. I tried it and it does take away some gas pain, not as well as GasX but better than nothing. Dr. Pitcairn has a much more elaborate and no doubt better recipe than mine, the recipe is readily available online.
If it helps then see if you can figure out why she has tummy aches. SEB is good for occasional troubles but shouldn't be used daily for long periods of time in case it inhibits proper nutrient digestion.
Dogs do just like the taste of grass though. One of the photos in Max's [or maybe Sassy's] page shows the two of them chowing down on new spring grass big time.
Since it isn't digestible too much isn't good for them, not really much different than eating short bits of yarn. My dogs never ate huge amounts and all that happened was interesting poop but it could wad together and be difficult to pass.
