Stressed Doodles

Post by kATE » 17 Jul 2007, 18:33

Hi Guys ,
We are due to go on holiday in a couple of weeks and will be driving a long way , Iam sure I read somewhere that you can buy a kind of anti stress medication for doodles !
Neither get car Sick (well Buddy once after just having breakfast) but they seem to get stressed ie rapid breathing , and can't settle ,they can't go to sleep and they figit the whole way .
Just wondered what everyone recommends ??

Hi Kate

Barb once recommended sea legs the human travel sickness pills.

I give Rosie one the night before the journey and another an hour before setting off!! It does the trick with Rosie. Although she's no longer sick when travelling I do find that the pills relax her more when you have a longer journey.

I would think that may be Bach Rescue Remedy, it is homeopathic for humans.
Would this be a holiday in Somerset?

Think you could be right there Deb :D Really looking forward to it , Iam praying for sun , Is there such thing as a sun dance ?? Coz the one Ive been doing ain't working and the neighbours think I've lost the plot :lol:

Hi Kate
Yes I have used the rescue remedy on dogs and I know that quite a few groomers use them.
Have a great holiday :D

Hi Kate
My toffee was terrible in the car, really sick and very frightened. I got some tabs from a local petstore. There called scullcap & valarian for travel sick and anxiety. they work wonders. Just 3 tabs half an hour before we go out and he hasnt been sick since. have a look at http://www.dorwest.com this is the address on the bottle. They really do work!

Hi Kate,

I use Rescue Remedy for the dogs (and me), it's great and works really well. I usually give them their initial drops 'on the rocks' (mind the glass dropper) then add about 15 drops to a litre of water so they get regular top ups when the have a slurp.

I also use drops of lavender oil either on their cushions or,if they are particularly stressed or feeling a bit hyper, I put 2 drops on a glove and then gently stroke them around the chest and neck area with it.

You could also try a DAP spray.

:D
