    Ginger cookies and dogs?

    I gave Zorro a ginger cookie the other day. Just half of a plain ginger cookie and he got really sick! He had diarrhea and vomited twice the next day. My daughters also said they saw him eating cat poop. So my question is do you think I poisoned him with the ginger cookie or was it the cat poop? I thought I had him broken of that habit but I guess not....

    I would be suspicious of the cat poop, not the ginger cookie. Some people give a tad of ginger when their dogs throw up, seems to settle their stomachs. Cat poop can lead to very bad intestinal problems.

    Ginger is not bad for dogs, it actually helps to reduce nausea in both dogs, and humans. Many people use it for motion suckness. However, the amount of ground ginger in a regular spice cookie would be absolutely miniscule. I think I put 1/4 tsp of ground ginger in an entire spiced cake. It may have been the cat poop, or may have been the "other stuff" in the cookie. Dogs cannot handle a lot of sugar, and non-sugar sweeteners are even worse.

    Okay thanks! Yeah he has been just having issues the past few days. We had to move the cat box because we wanted it to be upstairs by where her and kittens are so she would not have to leave them often and so now we cant keep an eye on him and he is getting quite sick. We have been cleaning it everyday of course but there has not been much to clean out thanks to our "tasters choice"
