Pets and Nausea
Animal Clinic of Verona
We love our furry friends and don’t want to see them in pain or uncomfortable but many pets experience nausea! Motion sickness is a common problem among cats and dogs. Luckily, there are several ways that you as a pet owner can combat the symptoms and make your pets ride a joyous one. Here is what you can do:
- Restrict Diet: To relieve stress on your pet’s tummy make sure to restrict their food consumption before getting into the car. This will reduce the chance of vomiting while in transit.
- Pet medications: Ask your Veterinarian what is right for your pet! There are several different medications on the market that can help your pet travel easier. From long trips to around town. For cats and dogs your veterinarian can prescribe a drug called Cerenia.
- Consider a crate: Both cats and dogs feel secure in small places! Using a crate covered in a blanket will help your pet feel more comfortable and prevent them from focusing on the racing trees and scenery. This is one of the main reasons pets become nauseous and end up vomiting.
- Long trips mean frequent stops: If you are gearing up for a long trip make sure to schedule in ample breaks for your pet!
Helping your pet feel comfortable is the best tactic you can take. Follow these tips to ensure you and your pet have an enjoyable car ride not a miserable one! #AnimalClinicofVerona Where Pets are Family!
