Travel sickness

It’s the bane of my life and stops me traveling too far afield with Roxy. I’ll admit that over time she has improved slightly, to only vomiting after 30 minutes – as  a pup it came from both ends within 15 minutes! Over the years I’ve tried various suggestions and although sometimes the remedy seemed to work, sadly it wasn’t for long. I feel for Roxy, as a kid I couldn’t travel more than 20 mins before projectile vomiting once down my Mum’s neck! Even now on long journeys I wear travel bands and sit in the front.

I believe to treat Roxy successfully I need to know what really causes the sickness, the general consensus on the matter is that it’s stress related. To which I whole heartedly agree, but what I need to know is it stress because she’s panicking about being feeling and being sick, because she has travel sickness, or is she stressed because she’s a bundle of nerves and is outside of her confront zone? Personally I think it’s a little of both.
Recently I’ve been searching the internet for any new inventions or ideas to try in an attempt to make going on holiday a much nicer experience for both of us. I’ve already invested in few products and I’m still searching more. I’ll be sharing our reviews on this blog, so pop back regualrly to see how Roxy is getting on.

Please share your travel experiences too. Do you have travel sick dog? Have you tried anything that works? Please do tell…

Hello and Woof!

Welcome to Roxy’s blog! Now I must confess that writing doesn’t really come naturally to me, I’m much more a visual creative and would rather describe something with an image than words! But, as a pet owner, I often find myself scouring the web looking for products and reviews on all things pet friendly and I really value these detailed descriptions. So I feel it’s only fair, that I too, should share our experiences and travels with you all.

I have lots already lined up to share with you, and I can’t wait to get blogging!
