We have got you covered as always. Here, we’ll discuss some things to keep in mind while traveling with your dog.

So, what is there to wait for?

Let’s begin!

Tips To Know While Traveling With Your Dog

Motion Sickness 

Like humans, dogs too feel sick in the stomach in a moving car. Half an hour before taking him in the car, you should give him medicine for motion sickness. Consult the vet about what medicine to give. The vet will prescribe the medicine depending on the size and the weight of your dog. This is an important thing to do while traveling with your dog as if your dog starts feeling sick it will vomit. This might make your dog sick.

Getting Used to Car Travels

Our dogs mostly stay at home and don’t travel a lot. The only time they get into the car is to go to the vet and start associating cars with vet visits. Make them believe that they are not going to the vet and occasionally take them out for drives or to parks. This way they will get used to car travels and a trip will cause your dog no harm.


Do not feed the dog right before it sits in the car. Feed him at least an hour before traveling. Always remember to keep the portion small. The same rule applies to water. Do not give him too much water right before the drive. This is essential as if it will eat more and while traveling it starts to feel dizzy due to motion sickness, it may vomit. If this happens frequently, your dog may get sick. So, be careful about how much you feed. Always keep the portion small no matter what you feed it.
