I had to take Bogie with me to work today since I had so much to do and haven't left him home alone yet. :roll:
That's okay as I plan on taking him as many places as I can.......But the POOR BABY!!
He was in the crate in the back of the Tahoe. I made several stops running in & out of places...........then about an hour later, I stopped where I could walk him.
I went to let him out and walk and he was SOAKING wet! He had drool all over his muzzle and all over his front legs!! Luckily, I had a towel (that's how bad it was) and dried him somewhat. But he was so wet that a 15 minute walk left his muzzle dangling with icicles.
Well.........I had 2 more stops to make and by the time I got in the driveway.....it was the same mess again. His bed in the crate was soaked!
I felt sooooo sorry and bad for him!!
Has this happened to anyone? No vomiting.....just drool?? Does it stop? Because I REALLY, really want him with me! In my kind of work, I can do this! But, he'll be in the car alot.
Vet said try benadryl or Dramamine. I hate to give him a dose of these for only an hour or two....but maybe, maybe it'll help??

Jonah was exactly like that! Bogie will get used to it, Jonah did, but it took a few months. It does happen still on occasion, but not like before. The more you take him out, the better he'll get! :wink:

Tanner did ths (and would throw up also) but the drooling continued longer than the throwing up. We would tie a towel around him in the car.

I found that taking him frequently on short drives to get him use to traveling really helped. Now at 18 months his beard gets wet but not the entire car :wink:

Hi Linda, I have heard on other forums that ginger will help calm them while in the car. Just keep gingersnap cookies on hand and give Bogie a cookie before his ride, it's worth a try. I would rather give him a little sugar than drugs if it were me :wink:

Has anyone else heard of this?
