Dogs Get Car Sick Too!

Motion sickness effects dogs too and nothing is worse than seeing your pet turn green and start drooling and panting and.......

According to market research from Pfizer Inc., as many as one out of six dogs experience motion sickness. However, medications and natural remedies can help.

Natural remedies for motion sickness:

1. Keep a window partially open so that fresh air can relieve the symptoms.

2. Use flower essences which are calming

3. Sooth the stomach by feeding a little bit of ginger, peppermint, or chamomile.

4. Give your dog a soothing, whole-body massage before hoping into the car.

Nonprescription medications for dogs with motion sickness include Benadryl, Dramamine, and Bonine. All have sedative effects and should only give these medications with a veterinarian's recommendations and instructions.

Happy travels to you and your dog!
