Anti static strips for doggie car sickness?

A friend tried everything for her dog which couldn't travel to the end of the road without being sick. Eventually she fitted an anti static strip to the car - no more problems. So either it was a complete coincidence or it works!
Anyone tried this?

Your post piqued my curiosity so I did a bit of searching and it was interesting as to what I found.

I read one study which suggested the balance of ions in a particular environment might affect certain individuals in such ways as nausea, dizziness and headaches. No doubt a car or an airplane is subjected to static buildup due to wind driven friction and precipitation friction. Aircraft have wicks installed on the trailing edges of the wings to aid in static discharge but more for the benefit of aircraft operations such as communications and navigation rather than passenger comfort.

Hey, if it works it works, coincidence or not. If I had a dog that didn't travel well, I'd most certainly give it a try.

Guess to prove it one way or the other, your friend could leave the strips in place for awhile, then try removing them, to see the result.

That one might be difficult as that particular dog is long since passed away! But I'll try with mine and report back.
