He's 7 months and I've read that dogs do tend to grow out of it. However he's pretty much fully grown so not sure he will grow out of it.
I drive really slowly, no more than 50-55mph, really slow round bends, roundabouts, etc. Don't give him breakfast before a long car journey. We've tried him in the front and in the back and he's still really bad.
Went out at the weekend and the kids were covered in vomit by the time we got there - had to stop 3x to mop up and change towels and it was a 45 min journey.
Going on a 3 hour journey next month - is it worth seeing if the vet can presribe anything?
My Tilly got car sickness so i stopped taking her out in it for a few weeks (so she "forgot" how she felt in it) then started only taking her round the local park in the car (less than 5 mins-people will of been thinking "lazy cow" lol) This way she is learning to associate the car with good things (ie walk) Then about 3 weeks later started going slightly further, or just taking the long way round. I'm up to about 15 minutes so far (lol) Luckily there's a few places locally within the 15 minutes drive so i have a few choices on where to go. Need to find a few new places about 25 mins away i can try her with. Its slow going but well worth it.
Those are exorbitant costs. Why is the vet charging so much for a simple referral???? The behaviourist cost sounds insane as well.
I had a lady out to help me with my young dog and paid 40 euros with free back up over phone/e-mail afterwards. I also spoke to my old trainer who is also an acredited behaviourist and she charges 15 pounds for 30 minutes (also includes free phone/e-mails to check on progress afterwards).
I'm annoyed with the vet. They normally charge £25 an appt and I assumed it would be this plus £8 for kennel cough vaccine.
But I was charged for a "behavioural consultation" even though I was given no advice about behaviour, simple health check and yes she has a single side of A4 to fill out saying Yes or No to about 10 health questions.
