Zelda and her car sickness!
I can officially take Zelda on 30 minute care rides and no vomiting. Not even salivation!
When i first got her. She would salivate in the car, with it not even being turned on. It would a lot of saliva. And a 3 minute care ride would usually mean a vomit.
Now we can do 30+ minute car rides and no salivation or vomit! I have feeling she still doesn't feel 100%, but she is doing a lot better and im so proud of her!
For those who are struggling with the same thing I can tell you what I did so that you have an idea of what you could do.
1.) She got a treat in the car. And i would do that several times a day. So that the car was a good thing, she got treats in there!
2.) I had to take her to training, which was 40 minutes away. I got her Cerenia. Which still she salivated for the 40 minutes, but no vomiting for all 5/6 sessions. Only on the way back from one training did she vomit (probably because of the treats)
3.) When i didn't give her cerenia, we would go for 3-5 minute car rides for over a month. And we would stop at a place to have fun! Flirt pole, running around, investigating new things, hiking, etc. Than I raised it to 5-10 minutes for weeks and did the same thing, the destination would always be fun!
This is just really exciting to me, because it opens up more opportunities for hiking places and what not for us to go to! Yay!
