Max got sick going to the vet and coming back. He threw up a ton!! The vet told me to give him a benedryl about an hour before driving. I will try that next time!
On a good note- he didn't bark the whole trip and was crated in the back.

I don't know if this will help, but I think my puppy's car sickness is anxiety, not motion. He starts to drool as soon as he gets into the car. We are working on desensitizing. I don't even start the car. We sit in the car and he gets treats for watching me and doing a little obedience. Then we get out of the car. Today he didn't drool. YAY!
Our next step will be to start the car, but still not go any where. Followed by back and forth in the driveway. Eventually we may go all the way around the block. Slow process.

Well Schatzi is 10 months old and she still gets car sick. I did what a lot of people here mentioned. Short drives and slow turns, but never worked. Ginger helps with motion sickness. I give Schatzi 2 ginger snap cookies 15 mins or so before leaving and it seems to help her out. She hasn't thrown up since then. Some people also told me that ginger tea mixed with their food helps them out as well. Haven't tried that one yet, but I will soon.
Let me know if you find anything else that works. Sucks that our doggies can't be comfortable while on a joy ride!

|Gilly1331||Our vet advised either benedeyl or dramamine 30 mins before a car ride. 1 miligram per lb. The other thing to do is start by doing daily rides for a few mins and gradually increase the distance/time. All of our 3 aduly dogs have outgrown carsickness by 1yrs old. We haven't started the 4 month old puppy yet only bc it is way to much work for me right now to clean up his messes in the truck. Once I pop I'll start taking him for rides with him the the front of the truck and my newborn in the carseat in the back.|

|AngieW||Our golden was carsick. If she was in a moving car for more than 20 minutes, she would puke all over the place. She was able to go on long car rides with a prescription we got from the vet, but the prescription made her sleepy and a little loopy, so we only took her to places within 20 minutes of home unless we absolutely had to take her somewhere farther away. She did improve to the point that she could handle about 30 minutes, but that's as good as she got.|

I think you can compare the ingredients, but the non-alcoholic part was what I as keyed into.
I have not seen it work for anything but the one with alcohol did seem to make my old dog really sick - not sure if that was it - hard to imagine.
