    Benadryl for car sickness?

    My puppy was getting an exam today, and I mentioned how she gets car sick. The vet said for her to take Benadryl, but if that doesn't work, they can always give us something prescription. I'm happy that he is trying to save us some money, but I have never heard of this have you?

    Then again, I never had a dog who got carsick before.

    Benadryl also functions as an anti-nausea drug.

    I used Dramamine when Penny was a puppy. But I suppose Benedryl might work, too.

    Supposedly Dramamine can have a soporific effect as well. . .but it never seems to slow Penny down at all. I would give her one tablet (I don't remember the exact dosage), she weighed about 40-50 pounds. But what worked best was making sure she hadn't eaten anything for at least 3 hours and hadn't had anything to drink for at least half an hour. And waiting for her to outgrow it .
