Ginger Dog biscuits
Of the many food enhancers I use in my
cooking, ginger is one of my top 3 herbs.
Because of its many benefits, I even use
ginger when preparing my dogs’ meals.
Ginger is commonly used in many Chinese
dishes; it’s a must-have for mothers during
her confinement period. It’s said that ginger
helps get rid of excess wind/gas in the

tea as a way to ease digestion after
consuming spicy food.
Since dogs don’t usually chew their food,
they gobble; they’re likely to get bloating

to have ginger in their diet. This recipe is so
delicious; I occasionally steal my dogs’
cookies when they aren’t looking. :X
