I would like to know if dogs can have Peppermint. I think that may help.

Well... you probably need to figure out why Lucy is throwing up--but to calm an upset tummy--ginger is fabulous. I always have crystallized ginger for myself, but I suspect Lucy would like it best in Ginger Snap cookie form. Be sure to brush her teeth afterwards because I'd hate to be thought of as promoting tooth decay. Ginger is fine for my dogs my vet has informed me--so I'd guess it would be okay for Lucy if she's generally healthy.

So, IF YOU WERE THROWING UP, and someone gave you peppermint. DO you think you would stop throwing up??
Seriously, call a vet.

Actually yeah anytime I got sick ans it was my stomach my mom would make me drink peppermint tea, and I did cal the vet. I just wanted to know if it could help till could get her to the a vet.

Thanks for the advise derenka she seems to feel better. But I think I'm still going to bring her to the vet to make sure.

I hope you will try to figure out why she was throwing up. Sometimes my dogs do that, for no reason that I can see, but other times it is because they ate something that didn't agree with them.

Please let us know how it goes.

Of course I will keep you updated. I looked around her sleeping area and It looks like she got into my brothers room and ate somthing that looks like pieces of a bouncy ball. Feels rubbery.

Then she could be blocked, which is a surgical emergency. She needs to see a vet now and get x-rays. Good luck.

dabunch "What kind of toothe paste do you use?"

My dog seems to be back to her playful annoying self. I'm so happy. I was very worried. But I still made an appointment for her to go to the vet, because my brothers dog was also sick.
