Hello, There are a few meds that work well for sedation when dogs are traveling. If you just need something to take the edge off, Xanax (Alprazolam) works great. If you need something for more pronounced anxiety, Clomicalm is nice. If you want something to knock him out and let him pretty much sleep the whole way, Acepromazine is the go to med. These can all be obtained from most vets. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
