PLEASE BE SAFE & WORK!!! Any input????
Hi,I'm kinda new here....well,it's been a few years. I read post,and looked at site,and wow,this product would be a life saver for me and my 3lb baby girl. She gets car sick,and stressed any time we even approach the car. I'd love to not have her so sick. My only ques is......is it safe? Has anyone here used it? Please let me know what you experience,as I would buy this in a second as long as I knew it was safe. I worry so about my baby girl. Thankyou in advance, I LOVE YT! Blessings, Kris and " Starbuck". PS my sweet sweet girl Starbuck (Star) has been wanting to go back to Starbucks for coffee with me. She used to go when I first got her,but now sadly,she's a homebody due to her car ride issues.

It depends why he's getting car sick. Some dogs have anxiety because they mostly have only gone to vet visits which can be painful. So they have learned to be anxious. Other dogs have anxiety because they actually get nauseous from the motion of the car. That would be more of a physiological problem with the inner ear, rather than a psychological problem of anxiety. If itís due to nausea and motion, then I would try a drug meant to help with motion sickness. Also, allowing the dog to see outside, rather than lying down in a bed can remarkably improve motion sickness. Ifís itís due to anxiety, than a calming pill could help and also be sure and take him to lots of fun places between vet visits. I havenít tried the pill you mention, I have tried Comfort Calm and it really helped Ralphie when he was having panic attacks. The main ingredient of Richard's Organics Pet Calm is Valerian and that is said to have a calming effect. The main ingediant of Comfort Calm is Tryptophan an amino acid found in many foods and also has a calming effect. Both sound safe.
