Question:

: If I may, I would like to reply to the whole motion sickness dilemma. Not all dogs will outgrow it... I have a JRT who gets car sick after about 20 minutes, and my friends have older dogs who STILL get car sick. Finally though, someone told me of a remedy... Feed them ginger! It has to be fresh though, not the pill-form (I've never seen it, but she said the pill form is available). Hope that's helpful!


Response:

Thanks for the tip, Jill. It even happens to people! At my advanced age, I still now and then have that awful feeling creep over me. It never happens when I am the driver, however. So, the obvious answer is, let your Jack drive the car.

No, no ~ I'm just kidding. Maybe the ginger will do the trick.
Thanks again.

Carol
