How can I prevent my puppy from getting car sick?

If you are planning on travelling with your puppy, keep in mind these handy hints for preventing car sickness:

  • Place a drop of essential peppermint oil onto the puppy’s collar or air freshener of the car. (No more than one drop though, as the smell can be very strong.)
  • Feed your puppy a small meal about an hour before the car trip. Add to the meal a pinch - tsp of ground or fresh ginger (depending on the size of your puppy) and 1/4 - 1 cup of strong chamomile tea.
