Thank you for this tip! My 6 lb Yorkie was sick and had diarrhea and then vomited. I found your tip but realized that a slice of bread was too much for him, so I pinched off a piece of the bread with honey and ginger on it and had to force feed him. Then I did a second piece. Within 20 minutes he was at ease and slept all night long. The next day he was back to his feisty self.
I have a miniature dachshund and I give him one teaspoon of powdered ginger (which I pick up at the grocery store) when he starts having bouts of vomiting. I get him to eat it by taking a piece of sandwich bread which I apply honey and then put the ginger on the honey. The honey helps the ginger stick to the bread. Then I fold the bread over itself (like a sandwich) and feed it to him. He loves it and it immediately calms down his stomach and eliminates the vomiting. I only have to give him one dose.
