Sorry to have to tell you this, but it really took about three years of conditioning before she was comfortable in the car, or our motorhome. Now she willingly gets into the car, and often even enjoys it, but it was a slow process. Though she will occasionally get motion sick, itís now a rare event and usually only if she is already not feeling well, or stressed about something, but itís like a one in twenty five event now.
Thank you Laco! I might try Dramamine. Do you know what the dosage was per size?
I will be taking her to work with me on a daily basis which is a short 10 minute drive, so hopefully it doesn't take 3 years to get her use to the idea!
