Jax's experience with Cerenia

Well we took our trip to Florida & i did give Jax the Cerenia. For the trip down that is the only thing i gave him & he did still drool terribly & had some dry heaves like he was going to throw up but didnt. He did however throw up after about 10-12 hours of driving, but only once. You could tell he was nauseous.

For the drive back i decided to try something different. I did give the Cerenia 2 hours before we left(per instructions) but then i also gave Jax 1/2 a Bonine about 1 hour before we left. Then just as we were leaving i gave him a dose of something that is similiar to Rescue Remedy. He did not get nauseous once! No drooling, dry heaves or anything. We drove straight thru for 14 hours(we stopped many times!). He slept most of the way or just looked out the window. I was sooooo happy!! I have tried Bonine by itself. It helped but he still got sick.

So i was very happy with the results (esp.on the trip back home). Anyway just thought some of you would like to know.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!!

Glad to hear that you found a solution that makes Jax comfortable on car rides. Had you used Rescue Remedy in combination with Bonine before?

Benji gets carsick too and so far Bonine has worked but Benji cannot handle the stop and go traffic. He still throws up. Fortunately, he is not nervous but I am hoping that he will stop feeling sick evnetually.

Best, Poornima

Yes i have tried that combo before & it does help with the drooling & he will throw up after about 20-30 minutes instead of 2 minutes. I would only give Cerenia on very long trips. Its not something to use all the time. He hates the car & gets so worked up if he knows he is going in. Poor thing!

Shannon, I am glad to hear that the Cerenia worked. I was told that the Cerenia will not stop the drooling, because it is designed specifically for the vomiting. That combo sounds good but I would be concerned that it is too many meds. Were you able to check with a vet to be sure it wasnt too much? I am so excited now, I want so bad to take Logan places but never can. That is one LONG car trip, you guys are so brave to go that far with pups!!

I checked with them before i left. I only asked about the Bonine.I know it was a very long drive but i just did not want to leave them behind & didnt really see any other way around it. But they all had a blast. I wish i could find someone around here i could trust them with, but i havent. Any volunteers?? Haha!!

I've tried Rescue remedy with Kodi, but it didn't work. He doesn't drool or , but he is very anxious and only wants to sit in my lap. I am going to mtry Bonine, because I have heard good things about it.

I think I found the solution for Tori's ing. The vet suggested we put her in a crate and block her view of the outside. I know it sounds like the exact opposite of what you'd think you should do. But, we've tried it now for 3 trips, 2 short (15 min.) and one longer one of about 45 min. each way. She hasn't had even so much as a drop of drool, let alone any

I'd tried the Rescue Remedy, Dramamine, "Quiet Moments", elevated car seat, etc. Her vet suggested we try the crate "trick" first and if it didn't work, she suggested using Benedryl (which I thought was strange to use for carsickness?) Anyway, so long as the crate does the trick that's what we'll use.

Glad you found something that worked for little Jax.

We've tried the crate with no view of the outside and benadryl and Havee still threw up a few times. What we've found to work is 1/2-3/4 Bonine 1 hour before. No vomiting!! It's a pleasure to know that we can take him places and not get sick. He's fine on short, around town trips. It's the longer trips we use the Bonine for.

Leslie, I can say that benedryl worked for Lexi. She stopped vomiting when we gave it to her. I am going to try the Cerenia with Bonine & Rescue Remedy with Logan - he is still soooo bad
We went 2 1/2 miles to our friends and he still drooled like crazy, thankfully he didnt throw up. Now I just have to plan a trip with the pups to try it out!
