Anti-Nausea Ginger & Bone Broth Jellies For Dogs
Nausea can strike your dog for a number of different reasons, but perhaps the most common cause is motion sickness when travelling in the car. In this post, I share the recipe for a natural motion sickness remedy for dogs that will help calm your dog’s tummy and make car rides much more pleasant for both you and them.
We recently fostered a gorgeous pup, who unfortunately did not travel so well in the car. On the way home from picking him up he spectacularly brought up what looked like his breakfast, lunch, and dinner from the last 4 days. Needless to say, the poor little guy was feeling pretty miserable.
We attempted a few more short trips and all of them ended in similar fashion. That’s when I decided to try a herbal remedy to make car rides more comfortable for him.
Now when I think nausea…. I think ginger. Ginger is used by humans for all sorts of stomach ailments including post-operative or motion-induced nausea and morning sickness in pregnant women, but it has also been shown effective in reducing nausea and vomiting in dogs.
Now, it’s all well and good that ginger works, but I wanted to create a yummy tasting recipe that I thought pup might actually enjoy, rather than trying to force ginger down his throat and undoubtedly create more anxiety around travelling in the car.
Enter my – “Anti-Nausea Ginger & Bone Broth Jellies”. These jellies combine the anti-emetic properties of ginger with the stomach soothing effects of gelatin and bone broth (plus, as an added bonus, bone broth makes everything irresistible to dogs) These were a big hit and most definitely helped! After taking the jellies, pup was still salivating quite a bit while travelling in the car but didn’t have any more vomiting episodes, which was a major improvement.
I recommend giving your dog 1 of these jellies 30-40 minutes before travel. An extra dose can be given if required, but do not exceed 3 jellies in a 24 hour period.
Does your dog get a little queasy during car rides? Have you found anything that helps? I would love to hear your tips, so please leave me a comment below.
