Puppy gets Car Sick.
My puppy is 16 weeks old and everytime I drive with him somewhere he seems to get sick, despite us trying many different things to prevent it.

At first we thought it may be the aircon in the car and drove without using it the next time, but Lupo still got sick.
I have tried putting him in his 'mandjie' on the back seat and then again on my lap, but that did not seem to work either.

Is this something that will pass as he gets older, will he eventually get use to driving in a car? Is there anything else we can try to prevent him from getting sick?
My other dog LOVES traveling with us and I don't remember him getting sick as a puppy. I really hope that Lupo will also get use to it and enjoy it as much as Billi does!

Your advise will be much appreciated.

He may grow out of it. How far do you travel? You can use Rescue Remedy to relax him a bit. Is it associated with eating?
