If your cat or dog gets car sick, you’re probably familiar with the symptoms: First there will be vocal cues — cats will meow or yowl, and dogs will whine — and then you’ll spot that your pet is drooling a lot. You may notice that your cat or dog is pacing somewhat frantically, or perhaps conversely, they will seem quite lethargic. The next expression of the problem can be vomit. What causes car sickness in dogs and cats? And how can you avoid it? Very often with both cats and dogs, car sickness is caused by anxiety. Your pet is not sure what to make of the unfamiliar motion of the car, and they also may associate the vehicle with a trip to the vet, which generally won’t be a pleasant association. Many vets believe that carsickness is more common in dogs than cats — and dogs also seem more likely to outgrow the problem as they age. Here are five great ways to make your pet’s next trip in a car more comfortable, plus a bonus tip just for dogs.
