Thanks Chris

Sorry to hear this. It is a common problem in young dogs, thankfully they often do grow out of it with time. Until then there is a travel sickness medication known as Cerenia tablets, these are generally very effective at preventing travel sickness when given 30 minutes before travel and last for up to 12 hours, they do however need to be prescribed by your veterinarian as online prescribing of veterinary medicines not permitted under UK law.

I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
