I spray one spray 15 minutes before the ride. Lizzie cries, shakes whines, everytime. I also give 1/4 tablet Bonine to calm her. I don't give it to her for short rides (anything below 30 minutes), but for longer trips Rescue Remedy and Bonine help.
Also, this may sound strange, you might want to take a break after 10 minutes into the ride. Let him go out, walk and pee or just give him fresh air and bring him back into the car. He may not whine, or cry after this break. Lizzie tends to settle with this routine. It can be quite inconvenient to take a break within just 10 minutes into your travel, but it is worth it if the whining and shaking stops.
