We're travelling by car on a holiday soon & we'd love to take our dog. We fear they may become car sick. How can we make the trip safe for our pet?
If you haven't done a lot of travelling with your dog, it may pay to do a trial run. Take your dog for a half hour drive, and that may tell you if he's going to tolerate a longer drive or not.
There are pheromone products like Adaptil that can be used to keep your dog calm during the journey. But remember that on all car journeys, your pet needs to be strapped in. Make sure that you have regular stops on the way so that your pet gets a bit of a break, particularly on long, windy trips.
If you know that your pet is going to be nauseous or vomit during the tup, have a chat to your bet, because they may be able to prescribe a medication to help your pet and make the trip a lot more comfortable.
