Is your fur baby a room clearer?

Seriously! I mean really… what is that SMELL?… I hear you ask???

Well, we all know that some fluff balls can clear a room sooner than say: ” Get Pawdinkum!” Right??

Maybe its a bit of an ageing thing, but all I know is that since I’ve been adding a certain aromatic herb into Mr Dobbin’s diet, we can all settle in like a happy family for a night of Netflix on the couch without any fear of upset from room clearing activity.

I have to admit, I cottoned on to this idea after attending an amazing Ayurvedic retreat run by the talented Mudita Institute team in Byron Bay during October last year.  I had a consult with the incredible Ayurvedic practitioner – Keston and we just happened to be chatting about similar issues in humans! ;).

Keston said:  “try a 1/4 tsp of fennel with a 1 tsp freshly grated ginger in a shot of Aloe Vera” – let me say hmmmmm…. game changer!

This morning Andrew made us breakfast and there was my prepared shot, which I promptly drank.  I asked “are you sure you are using fennel”?

“yep” he said, “look!”  I said: “nope, that’s curry powder!” !!!!!  Bless him – trying 🙂

I’m talking about the wonderful  herb: FENNEL – sooooo good for the digestion.  Completely safe for pups and yes, excellent for us humans too.

I now sprinkle a 1/4 teaspoon over Dobby’s dinner in the evening – after about 6 weeks… like magic…no more diabolical room clearers… well, not so many anyway – a work in progress.


Fennel is an all round good guy!  Your dog can enjoy as a fresh vegetable – chopped up or as the aromatic herb sprinkled over food  (it has quite a strong liquorice smell)

Health benefits of Fennel

  • Rich in Iron and Potassium

Give it a go, I’d love to hear what you think!
