CBD for Motion Sickness..Getting desperate
My little guy, Shadow, is almost 2yrs. I've tried many things now, short trips, Benedryl, Damamine, now Cerenia. Nothing has worked. Not music, having the sunroof open, windows opened, windows close, front seat, back seat.
He wants to get into the car, doesn't appear anxious or afraid. He is ok for 1 or 2 miles, then he starts looking sick. Today it was Cerenia(prescription for motion sickness). He made it to the groomer and threw up after the 6 miles drive.
Not sure what to do next. My vet is against CBD oil and so am I. I feel it is uncharted territory. He has suggested anti-anxiety meds and feels that most motion sickness is caused by anxiety. I am so torn up about what to do. Nothing has gotten better despite my efforts.
This is a highly social dog who seems to love his outings. I have had him for almost a year and we struggled with separation anxiety. That seems to be in the past and he is fine being alone for a couple hours.
Any ideas on the meds or CBD oil would be appreciated. TIA
