Puke in car


My female dog is about 6 months and i been trying to take her in the car as much as possible and she seems to always puke in the car and her mouth drools allot -- but my little 6 pound female mini pincher is never car sick wonder why my big girl is always car sick is there any solution to this i always try not to feed her 2 hours before the car ride but she still pukes --- i love having my dog with me as much as possible but her being car sick all the time is very unpleasant

They tend to outgrow this. You can give a Rolaids about 30 min before each car trip and that helps. It is best ground up a bit and fed in something like a bit of string cheese - mush it all together and give it to her.

Do it each trip so if you go somewhere and stay for an hour, give her another one 30 min before you expect to leave to go home etc.

If you're planning to make a longer trip I would withhold her meal that morning and just give her extra dinner to make up for it. You can try using Dramamine as well (be sure to check with your vet on dosage first). Sometimes it just takes a while for them to get used to it so be sure to put down some old sheets in the car for the time being Good luck.

I agree, I think she will outgrow it. I had a GD pup that got carsick but he outgrew it in about 6 months.

I had a terrier that threw up all the time and sadly never out grew it. Hopefully your girl will. Lexi(rip) was scared of the car didnt get car sick but definately drooled. I played many games with her jumping in and out of the car. Sometimes I would feed her in there also. She did get better and finally stopped the drooling but I found she rode more calmly if kenneled in the car.

What would I do without them?

Puppy Kelly, would get to the edge of car sickness, if she was not being held by someone....gage & foam/wet coming from her mouth.
- one day I feed her kibble in the passenger seat / and we toy played, in my truck
- when I drive my 4x4, I put my right hand on her & praise girly
One month later, all rides are fine now.
