What are the symptoms of motion sickness in dogs?

The symptoms of motion sickness in dogs include excessive drooling, lethargy, vomiting, whining or restlessness, lip-smacking, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and shivering

Motion sickness is a common issue many pet owners encounter when traveling with their dogs, but understanding its signs and finding effective solutions can make the journey more comfortable for your furry friend.

Recognizing the Signs of Motion Sickness in Dogs

Traveling with dogs can be an exciting adventure, but for some canines, movement, especially in a car, can lead to feelings of nausea and discomfort. Recognizing the signs early can help you take steps to alleviate their distress. Common symptoms of motion sickness in dogs include:

  • Excessive Drooling: This can be one of the first signs your dog is feeling queasy.
  • Whining or Restlessness: A change in behavior or increased vocalization can be an indication of discomfort.
  • Vomiting: Just like in humans, an upset stomach can lead to vomiting.
  • Lip-smacking: Repetitive lip-smacking or licking is a sign of nausea.
  • Lethargy: Some dogs might appear more tired or unwilling to move.
  • Loss of Appetite: A nauseous dog may refuse treats or water during the journey.
  • Diarrhea: In severe cases, the upset stomach can also lead to diarrhea.
  • Shivering: Some dogs might shiver due to anxiety or discomfort.

Understanding these symptoms can help pet owners take preventive steps and ensure their dogs have a comfortable and enjoyable journey.

Why Does My Dog Get Sick In The Car?

Your dog may get sick in the car due to motion sickness, anxiety, or a combination of both, leading to symptoms like drooling, yawning, and vomiting.

There are primarily two reasons dogs might get sick in the car:

  • Motion Sickness: Just like humans, dogs can also experience motion sickness. This happens when the inner ear, which aids in balance, gets disturbed by the motion of the car. Puppies are especially prone to motion sickness as their inner ear structures are not fully developed. However, even adult dogs can exhibit symptoms if they're not accustomed to car rides.

  • Anxiety: Car rides can be a source of stress for some dogs. The unfamiliar environment, the sound of the car, and the sensation of movement can all contribute to a heightened state of anxiety. Over time, this anxiety can associate itself with the act of getting into a car, further exacerbating the issue. 

    How can I make my dog more comfortable during car rides?

    To make your dog more comfortable during car rides, ensure a well-ventilated space, take regular breaks, offer familiar toys or blankets, and consider using anti-nausea remedies like NoMo Nausea Bands for dogs.

  • Well-Ventilated Space: The first step in ensuring comfort is making sure your dog has a well-ventilated space. Proper ventilation can prevent overheating and help reduce the chances of nausea. Keeping a window slightly open, or ensuring the air conditioning reaches your dog, can make a significant difference.

  • Regular Breaks: Just like humans, dogs need to stretch their legs, have a drink, and relieve themselves. Taking regular breaks during longer rides can help your dog feel more at ease and less restless.

  • Familiar Surroundings: Bringing along your dog's favorite toys or a familiar blanket can make the car feel more like home. These items can be particularly beneficial for dogs who feel anxious during trips, as they can provide a sense of familiarity and security.

  • Avoid Feeding Just Before the Trip: It's a good practice to avoid feeding your dog immediately before the ride. This can reduce the likelihood of an upset stomach during the journey.

  • Tackle Motion Sickness: Fortunately, there's a solution to help alleviate these symptoms and make car rides more pleasant for your canine companion. NoMo Nausea Bands for Dogs offer a unique and non-invasive method to tackle both motion sickness and anxiety. Designed specifically for pets, these bands work on the principle of acupressure, applying gentle pressure to specific points on your dog's wrist. The bands can help regulate the imbalances causing motion sickness and have a calming effect, reducing anxiety. Plus, they are infused with natural essential oils that provide an additional soothing sensation.
