Car Sickness

Help and ideas for dogs suffering from car sickness

Put the pup in the car for five minutes a time a few times a day while the car just sat on the drive, feed the pup in the car and play with her just to get her to enjoy being in the vehicle.  The next step is to sit in the car with the engine running for short periods then just progress slowly with short trip's to the end of the road and back, the shop etc....

The homoeopathic remedies NUX VOMandCOCULUS are both very good remedies for travel sickness and do NOT make the animal drowsy use in 6 or 30 cc potency, start preferably a couple of hours BEFORE travelling and give during the journey as necessary

GINGER (obtainable from places like Holland & Barrett) this is of course the old sailor's remedy for seasickness

Some dogs respond to the Petrol fumes in cars and there is a homoeopathicPetroleum 200Xa single dose may assist matters, you would need toobtain this from a homoeopathic pharmacy like AINSWORTHs

BACH FLOWER REMEDY SCLERANTHUS is helpful (given in same way as RESCUE REMEDY...

KHALI PHOS is another useful remedy (Homoeopathic) to alleveiate nausea

GINGER BISCUITS may  work a treat but they have to be GOOD QUALITY with plenty of AROMATIC GINGER  the DUTCHY variety which can be obtained in most supermarkets but pricey may be best

PEPPERMINT helps allay anxiety of travel for some dogs and also to hang a bunch of PARSLEY in the car, also mysteriously seems to prevent travel sickness in SOME DOGS

High strength, one-a-day root ginger tablets from a herbal shop and give them  for 2 days prior to travelling

SEALEGS  if if its a long journey, then giving one late the previous night and then another before the journey seems to work

or STUGERON Give a whole tab the night before travel, and another half an hour before travel!  No sickness, drooling and after one or two treatments the travel sickness stops altogether

Sealegs and Stugeron are both available at Chemist prescription free
