Customer Question

Best cause of treatment for anxiety and travel sickness in puppy's

Hello.

The best treatment that I have seen for anxiety is a medication called Trazodone. I dose in the 2-8 mg per kg body weight range 1-3 times daily, as needed.

For travel sickness, you can pick up Meclizine over the counter and give 12.5 or 25 mg once 30 minutes before travel. I go with 12.5 in small dogs and 25 mg in medium to larger dogs.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
