travel sickness

My Cav doesnt travel well in the car. He's better secured  in the front seat then he was in the back , but as soon as I start the car he shuts his eyes & leans hard into the back of the seat.

He's my only passenger thats done that so it's not my driving .

After a 30min journey he jumps out & looks for grass to eat. Theres no chucking but I doubt he's feeling great.

I hope to take longer trips but I'd feel better if my old mate was better at it.

He loves the car  or perhaps its the destinations he enjoys. As soon as he hears the car  keys, he's out the door & waits for me to lift him in it.

Ive tried  distracting him by talking etc  but thats going to wear thin on a long trip.

Any suggestions?

This happens daily when we go to the park so meds arn't the answer for short trips.

how old is he? I've had one carsick dog ( as in throw up), and several queasy types. I found all improved as they got older. I also didn't feed before any planned trips. All mine loved the car as well.

He's 7 years old but we've only had a car this year. Theres no actual throwing up but running to find a patch of grass suggests he's not feeling too good.

Hmmm perhaps I should grow a pot of grass to travel with us.

 

When he's on the  back seat he lays flat across it with his eyes shut tight.
