Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible

Sorry to hear that you have travel sickness problems with Jack. The drug in the sturgeon tablets is not one which is generally used in dogs so information about safety, effectiveness and dosage is not available. Your vet can however prescribe you with a suitable medication for dogs. There is one available know as Cerenia tablets for dogs, they are very effective at the prevention of travel sickness. The good news is that many puppies will also eventually grow out of travel sickness as they grow up. I hope this has adequately answered your question? Please let me know if you require anything else.
