I have a mixed breed/mastiff that has chronic stomach issues. She has been a puzzle to the vet. When she gets really bad, she will run around looking for anything to lick up to make herself sick. (dried leaves outside, furry dust bunnies in the house...anything)
Out of desperation one episode, I handed her a few handfuls of my dried peppermint that I keep on hand from my herb garden for making teas. She was thrilled with something else to lap up, but what she did not realize was the peppermint was calming to her stomach. Within 15-20 minutes she was fine. It has been a life saver for her. I now harvest extra peppermint to keep her stocked thru the winter.
She will also go to the herb garden and eat the lemon grass if she is feeling poor and it seems to help as well.
