Just like humans, dogs can suffer from motion sickness. Your pet may show anxiety, restlessness, vomiting, excessive salivation or licking the car. Check out the gallery for tips that can help you avoid travel troubles.
Motion sickness is called motion sickness. It can be caused by stress, not being used to traveling by car, fast and winding driving or being overrun before driving. “Feed the dog no later than three to four hours in advance. Feeding the animal too soon before departure can increase the risk of nausea and vomiting during the drive,” says dog nutrition expert Jiří Švihálek.
If the dog is stressed in the car, definitely do not raise your voice at him or, on the contrary, do not comfort him significantly. His condition may worsen. Provide him with plenty of fresh air, give him a favorite toy or carry him on the blanket he is used to from home.
Make sure the dog is in a comfortable position
You can then fasten it with a special safety belt or place it in a crate that is attached to the car body. This will protect it from possible injury in the event of a crash, while minimizing the risk of it being a distraction while you drive.
If the car is only partially occupied, you can also “sacrifice” the back seat and purchase special animal covers (car blankets) with security. With them, the dog can travel comfortably and at the same time you protect the car from hair.
Before driving, do not forget to check that the dog is in a pleasant and comfortable position. Especially for those who don’t like cars.
