Many dogs aren’t a big fan of the vet, and our Benji is no exception. They are invasive and scary, and usually someone will handle him in a way he does not feel happy about.

Recently little Leeloo, the spoodle, stayed with us for a board and train. When she arrived she was only 20 weeks of age. On her first day with us I put the dogs in the car to go to work, Leeloo got the seat next to me. Only being in the car for a couple of minutes, Leeloo started drooling resulting in a big patch of wet under her. Oh dear! Poor Leeloo gets very car sick. Seeing any animal feel so miserable and not being able to change their situation, is really heart breaking.
In this article we share some insight with you on why dogs get car sick and what you can do about it.
