Car trouble

Hi all,

Peanut is having trouble in the car in the form of vomiting and weeing. We do not have her in a crate in the car which would help with the weeing I think, but car sickness is the main problem.

We have tried the tablets and they work when we have time to give them and let them work but when we have to take her to day care due to work, she vomits and the journey is only about 1 mile.

Any ideas about how to stop this or is it something that stops with age?

Thanks in advance,

Dexter has a problem with car sickness as well. When he was 5 months old in July we were getting ready to hit the road in our motor home and were concerned that he would be sick all the time. Our vet gave us meclizine (generic Dramamine). It's true, Graham, that you have to give them 30 minutes before going on the road so it's not always the solution. Part of the problem with a small pup is feeling the motion without seeing any movement around them. If there is some way you could elevate your dog so they can see out the window it will help.

Dexter still has episodes but only when there is a lot of stop and go motions and turns. As long as we ride expressways he doesn't have a problem. He is growing out of it.
