can you give a dog dramamine
Type of Animal: German Shepherd Dog
Name of Dog: Jude
Hi there! I am a licensed veterinarian and I would be happy to help!
Yes, you can...is it for car sickness?
Yes - I am a travel nurse and we have to go 500 miles. He does ok for short trips but everytime we try longer he throws up relentlessly.
ok, how much does he weigh?
he weighs 98 lbs
The dose is about 100mg (two 50 mg tablets) 1 hour prior to a car ride....Meclizine works well too..the dose on this is 25mg tab one hour prior.....Also helps to avoid feeding a few hours before too
thanks so much!!!!
Your welcome, enjoy the ride...My German Shepherd stresses out too much in the car, so I avoid it at all costs!
