Sedative for travelling
Hi, we''re driving down from Pretoria to Cape Town with our two Sharpei''s.

What can you recommend as mild sedative to help them cope?

We don''t want to " drug"  them, just looking for something off the shelf, to calm them down for the 15hr journey.

Hi Morne

Try some Rescue Remedy – 2-4 drops 4-5 time’s a day.

The other important issue as you know is to make regular stops and exercise the dog for 30-60 mins. Rescue Remedy can be obtained from most chemist shops.

I hope this helps.
Kind regards
