Common Uses

Dill is great for relieving nausea and flatulence, especially those that come from a sudden change in diet, such as a dog that got into a garbage bin. This is because dill contains antifoaming compounds.

Dill also has antibacterial properties that can prevent bacterial production in the mouth. This makes it useful for treating bad breath and gingivitis.


For relieving nausea and flatulence, feed 2-8 ounces of cooled dill seed tea. Make the tea by steeping 1 teaspoon of dill seed to 8 ounces of water. If the animal won’t take it, try adding it to the drinking water or making the tea using a broth instead.

For treating bad breath or gingivitis, herb or seeds can be infused and added to the animal’s drinking water, or a poultice or glycerin tincture can be swabbed onto the animal’s gum line 2-3 times daily.
