Our Maggie is 4-1/2 months old and has gotten carsick since the first day we brought her home, whether she was in my lap or the carrier. Sitting in the car and taking short trips was working fine.....a couple of miles was about her limit though and she'd start yawning, then licking, then drooling and finally vomiting.....any longer and she'd get loose stools. These have always been happy trips for her once we got where we were going, plus a fun walk when we got home. For a longer trip (about 20 miles) our Vet recommended Dramamine.....we followed all her instructions, but it's the sickest Maggie has ever gotten. So back to square one, but now she barely tolerates a ride around the block. Someone suggested a safety harness and booster seat, so we have ordered them from Amazon. We plan some longer trips with her this summer, so hopefully things will improve.....I'll let you all know how things go. And I look forward to hearing some success stories from the rest of you, too!
