Don't Let Your Dog Suffer From Motion Sickness

As the owner of a "velcro dog" who loves to be with me wherever I go, motion sickness is something I pay attention to. Fortunately, my dog gets sick in the car only rarely, but it does happen — and recognizing the signs of motion sickness remains the key to preventing messy situations (and stopping my dog from feeling terribly queasy).

Signs of motion sickness often include drooling, panting, yawning, restlessness, lip licking, pacing, listlessness, dry heaving, shaking, whining or vomiting.

If your pet gets motion sickness, tell your veterinarian. Your vet can recommend something that could make a huge difference in your pet’s comfort level. After all, no one wants his best friend to be sick in the car.
