Default Travelling in car.

When Dimi is in the car he dribbles terribly. What is the reason for this. Is he actually scared of travelling. Even if its a five minute journey he has saliva dribbling down either side of his mouth.

It's usually a bit of nerves and a bit of feeling a little queezy that makes them froth and drool. They do usually get used to it in the end but it must be awfully strange for them to see the world whizzing past to start off with. :wink:

definitely a case of travel sickness.

Mac also used to do this. It would help if he can see out of the window whilst car is moving.

It passes eventually :wink:

Logie used to do this as well and he usually ended up being sick. He wouldnt even travel a mile without this happening. Our vet is 20 miles away and when he had to go to the vet he was a total wreck when he got there.

Our vet suggested a travel sickness tablet, i cant remember the name properly but it was something like Cerina. They were quite expensive and worked out about 15 a journey. However I only gave him a tablet for one journey and now he travels perfectly well although he still prefers to not look out.

It does sound like travel sickness, poor thing. Dogs over-salivate when they want to vomit so it sounds like the little guy is not feeling too good.
