Although ginger is in the "Generally Recognized as Safe" category of herbs, anyone who has never before taken ginger should use caution when first consuming this herb.
If your puppy is apprehensive or fearful about the car try a desensitisation program. Use some of his favourite treats. Encourage him to get in the car without the engine running and reward him for sitting in the car. Repeat this over a few days and when he is comfortable, turn on the engine and reward him for staying calm. Again repeat this over a few days. Then drive up and down the driveway and progress to a short car trip. Too many treats at this stage may make him feel ill, so use lots of praise and encouragement.
