My 7 month old pup Daisy gets sick on longer car trips. She does OK with short trips around town, but out on the road for longer periods of time, she throws up. 30-60 minutes of steady highway driving is about all she can take before she starts puking.[/b]
Where is she in the car and how is she confined. For many dogs like people subject to motion sickness looking out the side window especial or any window in general is a contgributing factor. If you can crate the dog and cover it so it can not see out you just might be able to solve the problem with out resorting to drugs. We use to have one dog that rode curled up on the floor.
