    Thumbs up Car Sick Dog

    Ok, Oscar was in the car for no more than 5 MINUTES when he chucked everywhere

    Poor thing, but seriously, who gets sick that quickly, and manages to throw up their entire stomach contents when his last meal was 7 hours previously!?

    The Vet gave us tablets when he was a pup to stop him being sick, but the Vet said it wouldn't last much longer seeing as he was getting older! (he is nearly 3 now!)

    So on the ride home all 3 dogs were huddled in one corner away from the mess .... lol, poor pup.

    I think they'd be like us...some get more motion sick than others

    I can't even turn around on my pc chair..not even one turn without feeling sick . I can't read in the car..not even the refidex unless the car comes to a complete stop!

    Do you have the windows down for Oscar? Nothing better than nice fresh air blowing in the face...lol

    Vitamin B6 can greatly help with car sickness - from your health food shop. You can give it on it's own or as part of a B complex. The good thing about vitamin B is that it is water soluble, and any excess merely gets excreted through the urine - like Vitamin c does.

    So it can't hurt to try!

    Some dogs get car sick throughout their lives - not just as puppies! - like some humans.

    Keesie was the opposite... Just open the door and she was straight in..
    Getting her out was the hard part. Sometimes we came home and parked in the garage. I opened the door for her so she can get out, and 2 hours later, she is still in the car waiting to go for another drive !!

    Thanks everyone!

    Well Oscar does love going in the car, he jumps right in! But as soon as the car gets moving, he starts to drool them boom; vomit.

    Thanks Natty - I'll try that! And there is a health food shop right next door

    I used to do this one... Especially on long night shifts when I got stupidly tired about 4 or 5am... Spinning around looking at the ceiling!

    lol. I would take my huge oes for rides in the car even after hubbys expressed opinion that dogs shouldn't ride in saabs. ha ha , she threw up on top of the console between the front seats. It shorted out all the wiring and I came to a halt quick smart. Couldn't get that darlin to start no matter what I did. Expecting a lecture, I lied and told him our newly adopted daughter (then 4, spoke only chinese and didn't have a clue about english), had spilt lemonade on the console when she was getting out of the car. Hhhmmm, he said, thinking I was telling fibs. The repairers took car away, spent two weeks and hundreds to fix the problem. Hubby asked what exactly a profesional thought had happened and he told my husband the lemonade story was more than likely true cos all the liquid in the console was all frothy and white.!!!! AAAgggg I dry reach when ever I think of it.

    I have had 2 dogs who suffered from car sickness...what a mess!!! I have read that a ginger nut bikkie helps before a trip, also junket tablets, if you can buy them anywhere. Luckily mine grew out of it before I tried these remedies.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    I can speak from experience that the ginger bikkies work. Jack has grown out of it now, but when he was a pup, a matter of minutes in the car and he'd be sick. Give him one of those ginger bikkies about 20 mins or so before (he thought he was getting a treat lol) and he'd be right as rain! Good luck!
