Doggy Tip's and Tricks

Motion Sickness

The best thing for motion sickness is ginger - 2
 500mg (1000 mgs total) capsules taken every 3 hours,
 starting an hour before the trip.  If this isn't
 enough by itself, 5 charcoal tablets 1.5 hours before
 traveling (taken separately from other food or
 medications) can help to absorb extra stomach acid.

Stomach Upset

 A drop or two of peppermint oil on the tongue can also
 soothe an irritated tummy. Also try candied/crystallized
 ginger. You can buy it in grocery stores in the spices section.
