My 13 year old springer has just developed travel sickness. She has been sick on her last 3 trips out, each time within 5 minutes of being in the vehicles. First time she was in our van, and it is a bit of a bumpy ride, the next time in my estate car with the whole of the pack and again today by herself on the way to the vets. (Each journey several weeks apart.) She is a very calm traveller and just lays down the whole journey and until now she has never been sick once even on long journeys.
I mentioned it to the vet today at her ECG check and he did suggest a drug called Cerenia but it costs a fortune and seems a bit ridiculous for a 15 minute trip in the car although I would consider it for lnoger journeys. As she has a bad heart, he told me to avoid any travel tablets with sedatives in them.
Just wondered if anyone could suggest a cheaper alternative?
I did hear ginger can help but not sure in what form to buy it or in what dose (14kg dog) ?
