Rescue Remedy

I did do a search on previous threads/posts. Some have had success and some not. But, how much would you administer? We have a 4-hour ride coming up and Benadryl didn't do a thing.

Are you dealing with throwing up? Or stress.

Stress. He is so miserable in the car. Whining mostly but he will also bark and howl and just can't seem to settle down.

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.

Best, Poornima

Thank you for the advice. We take short little trips around the neighborhood, to the grocery store a mile away, etc. We try different things, me holding him, in his car seat in the front seat, back seat, in a car seat with Evye, on the floor, in his crate. Tried it all to see if any one thing makes him more comfortable. The shorter the ride the better he is. We plan to stop 3/4 of the way for the night and continue on the next a.m.

They did have the spray Rescue Remedy but I bought the drops. Maybe I need to bring it back and get the spray?

I do 4 drops for Belle. But at the same token I did 2 droplets the first time for her and all it did was make her sleepy. I don't use it for motion sickness but to calm her down for stormy weather. It does work for her when I remember to do it ahead of time especially.

The reason I ask about the stress or motion sickness is Galen is in a fear class now and the instructor said for me to give her a couple of Ginger Snaps (Nabisco seem to be the best ingredients) for her motion sickness. Well it seem to have a calming effect on Smarty and Galen now goes to class with no throw up in the car.

Ginger is supposed to calm a dog’s stomach. Not sure why but Smarty was much better in her behavior class after eating a couple before going.

I just bought some ginger snaps (for me). We have about a 10 minute car ride tomorrow. Maybe all 3 of us will have a pre-trip ginger snap.
