For Motion Sickness

Ginger For Motion Sickness in Dogs

Ginger Dog Biscuits My dog can travel by car for hours without complaining or feeling sick, but some dogs are not as lucky - they tend to get motion sickness. They drool, pant, and whine, and may even vomit and/or have upset stomach.

Ginger is a great remedy for motion sickness both for people and dogs. It relieves symptoms such as nausea and vomiting.

As an added bonus, ginger also helps alleviate different sorts of digestive problems, including diarrhea, gas, and colic.

A caveat: Some dogs may not like the taste of ginger - at least not initially! My dog was hesitant at first, but once she has got used to the taste, she accepts the biscuits without a second thought. If you are making ginger biscuits for the first time, maybe you can use a bit less ginger and see how your dog likes the taste. However, less ginger in the biscuits makes them less effective for motion sickness!

Still, this ginger biscuit is healthy, low in fat, and gluten-free (if you use gluten-free oat flour). The dough is easy to handle and it takes no time to whip up a batch. Apples go well with cinnamon and ginger, and you can smell the aroma in your kitchen while the biscuits are being baked!
