Does your dog suffer from Travel sickness?

For dog owners whose pets suffer from travel sickness, the freedom to travel can be substantially limited. Travel sickness can take the fun out of travelling with your pet and can turn a day trip into a stressful and messy experience.

Travel sickness is a common occurrence, affecting many dogs, with younger dogs and puppies most likely to suffer.

Typical signs include

Trembling
Anxiety
Restlessness
Drooling
Nausea
Vomiting

Travel sickness can occur when the brain receives excessive signals from the body’s balance system, anxiety can increase the effect of other impulses and together all these stimuli can cause the feeling of nausea and eventually trigger vomiting.

If you have a long journey coming up and are dreading the effect it will have on your dog, come and talk to Walter, Boris or Vicki as there are prescription medications available as well as a wide range of herbal remedies
