Regardless, all pets should be restrained in some way EVERY time they are in the car. I was recently in an accident a few blocks from my home with both dogs in the car with me. It was in a residential neighborhood at an intersection and we all got quite a jolt. Both dogs were in the backseat in their car harnesses and impact was on the front passenger door. Maddux was on that side in the back and seemed to be the most affected by the whole thing. Both were quite shaken up and acted very spooked for the reamainder of the day. Maddux did vomit several times and both had diahreah for several days. I think it was just the trauma (emotionally more than physically). They were checked by the vet and found to be fine.
I hate to think if this had happened out on the highway at higher speeds, especially if they had not been restrained in any way.
I know its a hassle to buckle up everytime but so worth it when you think of what could happen.
