Thread: Puppy Car sickness

  1. #1

    Default Puppy Car sickness

    Everytime i take Brock out in the car, by the time we're a few k's down the road he's drooling like mad but so far he's made it to the park everytime without being sick. On the way back however, he's been sick nearly everytime. I'm pretty sure it's something he'll grow out of(he damn well better or i'll leave him at the park lol) but does anyone have any good suggestions for me to try until then? Tried ginger and he didn't chuck that day but he still drooled badly and it's hard to get him to eat much.

    Vitamin B complex. B6 is specific for travel sickness but the complex is great. Blackmores used to have a good one - don't know if it's still about. I also use Vitamin C powder in the food the day or morning before as it is great for stressed systems so reduces symptoms.

    My GSD girl used to get car sick when she was a puppy and she did grow out of this at about 12 mths old. As this was a long time ago I can't remember what she was given but I got medication from the chemist, ask your vet as this is the only safe option.

    I went over my notes from years ago and I used " Kwells" its a travel sickness prevention tablet for humans, mine is 8 years out of date so I'm not sure it's still around. I used this brand as it didn't make her drowsie because she had to go to training, you'll have to ask your vet as to the dose but it does work. good luck.

    Kwells is still around- saved me on my cruise earlier this year! Good luck with the car sickness, my patents dog suffered from it so I know how frustrating it can be!!

    The B vitamins and vit C are all water soluble so any excess will be safely excreted from the body. I have used Blackmores brand B complex tabs, and B6 as well for real sickies. One of each a good few hours or the day before the trip. Half for a little one. Long enough so that it will have been digested

    Blackmores used to be quite tasty and they would eat the tabs as a treat. I haven't used it for a while so not sure if that is the same.

    For long trips or real stressies or bad pukers a teaspoon of sodium ascorbate (vit C) powder in food the evening before can give a real boost.

    All will be found in a normal human health food shop and are very handy things to have about. I have used oral vitamin C to treat and or avoid infection, or for mild illness when vets are far off or inaccessible with great results.

    I also used it once to revive a bunch of guinea pigs who had eaten Oleander leaves and were in various stages of collapse/paralysis. All recovered very quickly and well.

    The last few days i've been taking him to a different park which although further is straight down the freeway and slightly less time to get there. His drooling has reduced and we haven't had vomit to clean up for several days now, here's hoping he keeps getting better and better
