I have been to a few pharmacies and they are all saying that Dramamine has stopped being made, and they offered me Sea Legs.

Has anyone used this for motion sickness?

The lady at the pet shop offered me some herbal travel safe (for dogs that are hypo) i stated that she wasnt at all hypo, then she said gracie most probally has a inner ear infection?!?!

I have never used it myself but I do know other show folks that have.

The dosage you want to give it
1/4 tablet = dogs under 50 = do not exceed more then 1 tablet in 24 hours
1/2 tablet = dogs over 50 = do not exceed more then 1.5 tablets in 24 hours

You want to give it 45 mins to hour before leaving.

Its works great from what they have told me. I dont use stuff like this b/c I start out puppies in cars right from the start so they understand movement.

If you are trying to work on your dog in a vehicle ... you want to do 10 minutes a day for about a week then move on to 20 minutes for a weeks etc until you can get the dog up to an hour. Once you have reached an hour you are usually good. Also do not feed the dog before you leave .. either feed no later then 6pm the night before or after you get to your desination.

Hope I have helped you

Thank you!
I have taken her in the car from 10weeks and she has been fine its only at 4.5 months she started being sick, i have a show 3 hours away on sunday to attend with her. I take her out when i got to the shop (10min) and she is great, and that is about 5 times a week.
Will purchase the sealegs and see how she goes :)

no i havent heard this. whenever i had vertigo thats what the doc told me to take was dramamine, but that was just to make my stomach feel better from the queezy feeling. if you think your dog has an inner ear infection i would use alchohol to help dry that stuff up... i know what its like to have it and i know that the dramamine didnt help me feel better it just helped settle my stomach. i hoped i helped but i highly doubt i did. sorry
