Pam uses Meclizine for motion sickness. It has no side effects like drowsiness. You can buy it as generic motion sickness medicine for people.

I am almost ready to give up on the idea of car rides altogether. After over a year, he is worse. This whole carsickness thing makes me sad. I had such ideas of us going places together and travelling to see my family. My fault. The breeder told me that he was a car puker and I thought(like an idiot) that we would work through it.

Kojo is a very dainty eater, carefully chewing each bite of food. That's why I can't hide any pills in food (does not like peanut butter). I tried warmed hot dog over the weekend, giving him a little piece twice a day. Then today, I pushed pill into center of piece of hot dog. He didn't spit anything out so I think he got dosed this time. I am going to take him to see friends in 2 hours. We'll see if he gets carsick this time.

Cerenia is very expensive so won't be depending on that. Vet gave me pills I am supposed to cut in half. Just crumbles pill so not happy about that. Will try benedryl if I can figure out dosage.

I hope Kojo does better this time. I never had a problem with the Cerenia crumbling and I used to half the pills all the time. Sometimes I broke them with my fingers. I think they only come in the package of 4? I bought them on line $16. for 4. I used them a lot for my RIP Romeo(the best Bichon Frise in the world!) in his final days.
I "think" you can only use them 3 days in a row?
Let us know how Kojo does! Fingers crossed for a happy drive!

Kojo did great on 25 minute car ride, two hours at friends and 25 minutes back home. Not carsick but did salivate some. So Cerenia clearly works for him. Gave him Cerenia in piece of warm hot dog about two hours before time to go.

And Kojo had so much fun with 4-year-old and 6-year-old. First time he met them so was a little leery at first. But soon the 4-year-old is running him around the house on leash and sharing her stuffed toy with him. He was gentle with her toy. The 6-year-old is typical boy, loud and climbing up doorways. Kojo was bit startled the first time he yelled but soon acquiesced to his noise and rambunctiousness.

I am trying to give Kojo as many experiences with kids while he is still a puppy. So with carsickness treatable with Cerenia, we can do more trips.

I'm really sorry that you're having these difficulties, poor little guy! We introduced Murphy to the car when he was young. He got sick once or twice early on, but we just completed the drive from Arizona to Minnesota and back. He did fine, just slept the whole way ;-> I hope you can get your dog to work through the issues because it is great to involve your pet in these sorts of activities.

When you visit your vet, you may want to ask them to show you how to "pill" Kojo. This is how I've always handled my dogs since almost all will require medicine occasionally.
