Sedating italian greyhounds
I've had dogs show and run absolutely normally while Mec is in their system.
It is non-sedating to the dog and you won't notice anything odd in the eyes, such as you do if you give ace promazine where they look half-baked or stoned after it kicks in. I give Meclizine until the dog is at LEAST 8 months old with a history of traveling comfortably and not becoming carsick.
It's much easier to never allow that pattern or habit to begin than it is to reverse it once it is established.
Karen Lee Surrey Hill Whippets Do whippets get carsickness easily?
I use a dog seat belt to keep her safe as the crate was making her more anxious.
It took some time and patience but now she is a great travel companion. Gypsy is not the first Whippet I have had to get car sick - they tend to be a bit on the anxious side; however, they have all out-grown it. Gypsy is so bad about getting sick in the car that she will no longer willingly (never did, actually) go near a car.
The same thing happened to me with my third whippet.
We went back to the vet in despair and she told us its more suggestive of anxiety than motion sickness which apparently Whippets are prone to. It's divided in 3 short chapters that cover: finding a puppy, shopping list, choosing a puppy and first days at home.
They have given us something called DAP Spray which a week later is already making a big difference. You'll receive them every 3 days to let the information sink in and allow you to get it all organized and ready for your new puppy.
I always travel any potentially seasick cruiser right behind my seat.
I think SUV's are the absolutely worst for motion sickness--vans and passenger cars ride much better for the dog. Not feeding breakfast until an hour or two on the road helps.
