Have you tried Dramamine for her? This is the motion sickness medicine that is used for people?
You can try Dramamine. There are two formulations.
The original Dramamine ( Dimenhydrinate) will make her sleepy. It is dosed at 2-4 mg/lb and is available over the counter.
If you don't want the sedation, try Dramamine II - or Meclizine - also available over the counter as Dramamine Less Drowsy - The dose is one 25 mg tablet every 24 hours for dogs over 20 pounds.
I hope that helps.
You are welcome.
If you haven't tried it, I would give the Dramamine II or Less drowsy a try. For some, it works better.
Also I am not sure where Lola sits when you travel, but if you can keep her from looking outside (like maybe use a dog crate or carrier, that sometimes helps.
In some dogs, it seems they do better if they are fasted before the trip.
