Can dog eat ginger? That is a question my vet and I have discussed many times. He tells me that studies that have been done indicate that ginger does in fact speed healing in some animals, however, dogs seem to be the only ones who seem to have an appetite for it.
I suppose that could just be because it is in the air and we are all exposed to it, although the smell is not liked by some breeds of dogs (minorities seem to be allergic to it).
Ginger is one of those natural ingredients, like vitamins A, C & E which can actually help your dog to be more active and healthy. Studies indicate that dogs that were fed ginger were able to gain more weight than other dogs who were not given the spice.
He also tells me that his own dog has had problems with arthritis, so any remedy he tries must be effective in easing her pain. This could be why he asked the question can a dog eat ginger?
It is very easy to treat dogs with arthritis or joint problems, but most veterinarians do not give their dogs any type of medication, only diet.
However, when your dog eats something they should not, then it is a good idea to take them to the vet.
Sometimes it is as simple as a teaspoonful of ginger mixed with a little water. Of course, if the dog seems to be miserable, then there could be something else wrong – so it is always better.
