Jackrussel - travelling in car
Our jackrussel is about 14 months old now. We are going away for the long weekend,, and want to take him with us in the car. He gets terrible car sickness. What is there that we can get him to either stop the sickness or to maybe calm him down for him to sleep for the whole trip. The trip is only 2 hours long. Please help. Thank you...

There are motion sickness tablets that can be used in pets. Your vet will be able to help you. Try and keep away from sedatives as they are inclined to disrupt the animals ability to control body temperature and can end up over heating in the car.
