Hello Folks. Anyone had any experience with dogs with motion sickness?

The Wife's jack russell shows obvious signs of this, but doesn't mind a ride in the offending vehicles. Can understand her getting sick with my driving, because all our daughters did, but she can't handle anyone's driving.

To her credit, the pup has only "blotted her copy book", about twice, in a few thousand clicks.

"What's that dear?" "Oh yeah, I forgot about her being sick on the plane coming home..........."

Thanks all, any remedies welcome.

Bob.

G'day Bob

Our Miss Vomit was cured when she was spayed.

Prior to that we got some type of Dog Valium from the Vet to drug her on long trips to Alice Springs or Melbourne.


Cheers

G'day Willem,

"Miss Vomit" eh? You have a way with words, Willem.

Wonder if its a female thing, being sick in cars?

Note about the dog valium too, Willem, could even hit myself with a couple when getting close to Brisbane's traffic.

"The owner" hasn't mentioned speying yet, might be the cure.

Regards,
Bob.

Gday Bob,

I had a dog that used to be really stressed when she heard stones etc hitting under the vehicle and would end up up chuckin.... We did what Willie mentioned and got some tablets from the vet. After 3 trips using these no more problems...

Thanks Blaze,

Defintely going to get some of these tablets, they might cure my occasional airsickness...............and the dog.

Knew a bloke who's Dad got airsick flying himself, and with use of motion sickness pills gradually cure the complaint. Don't thin he would have used the doggy pills though.

Hooroo,
Bob.

Hello Laura,

Thanks for the suggestion.

One thing about them on the floor, you wouldn't have to sit in any "offerings".

Looks like pills are the go,

Hooroo,
Bob.

Have you tried the tablets with lead in them ??

No, seriously, the travelcalm tablets from the vet are the go......or the boarding kennel ...

Too many good national parks in Australia to worry about bringing the dog along...I do hope people don't take them in ??

Hey Gronk,

We're talking about dogs here, not bloody cats, lol.

Both good suggestions, Travelcalm, eh? Tried kennels many years ago for a ridgeback cross we had. Came out of there a nervous wreck, those dogs never stopped barking, he reckoned!!!!

Live next to a Park at moment, what about the rangers that have dogs with them. Wonder whats their excuse?

Hooroo,
Bob.

We have a one eyed mongrel dog called Dougall who throws up at the drop of a hat when travelling. he's a Lapso Llasa so not a big dog. half a quells half an hour before you leave on a trip reduces the vomit to about one episode per 3 hour trip in his case
Mostly he stays home to keep the likes of Willem away. LOL

G'day Des,

With that sort of breeding, I'm glad you gave the dog a good Scottish name.

Wondered about Quells too, Des, but thought maybe quarter might have been enough. Half a pill might knock this lady out, but if "Dougall" is only small, then we'll see how we go.

This young lady is so friendly, she would have Willem seated close to my wine cooler, or somewhere similar.

Thanks,
Hooroo,
Bob.

Dougall always has to be top dog but he's the greatest wimp out. He is a cronic chucker when travelling so maybe you could try 1/4 Quells for a start and maybe build up from there.
You can also get travel sickness patches that are stuck directly to the skin. Maybe around the belly might work.
I once knew a bloke who needed them to cross the river on a ferry on a calm day. LOL Now thats bad. LOL

Hi Bob

Our dog , a Belgian Sheppard , used to throw up when travelling in the back of our patrol.

We moved her to the more comfy passenger seat and she has been ok since.

I think we were conned.

It sounds like you were, Robin.

This young lady doesn't look any happier in the front, certainly not smug, anyway. Eventually, the aircon freezes her into submission, and she goes to sleep, but would be nice to "cure" her, for the future.

Popping pills may be only option, at the moment,

Thanks,

Hooroo,
Bob.
