My pup get very sick in the car. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 5 minute ride or a 5 hour ride. I tried these hoping it would calm her enough to go for a short (under 15 minute) ride to her puppy classes. She HATED it. I tried everything I could to get her to eat it. She fought me tooth n nail. I had her so riled up, trying to give it to her, we couldn’t make it in the car at all. I have tried a few similar products and I’m not sure if it’s something she can smell in it, but she fights me every time. We are off to the vet to see if they can help.
This is the first time we tried Happy Travelerfor a new dog that we just re-homed. We were so hopeful it would work but it didnt.didn't. We already had a vet appointment and will be trying prescription medicine fir her motion sickness. We will be taking her on a camping trip I'm April and really hope that she can tolerate the ride.
Both of our Pomeranians (4 years old) have had car sickness since they were puppies. We hoped they would grow out of it, but they haven't. This is the only thing we've found that works somewhat consistently in stopping them from throwing up during a car ride. We've tried other calming supplements and even prescription car sickness meds (Cerenia) but this works better than all of them. The only reason I'm giving four stars instead of five is the terrible taste and smell it has. They refuse to eat it so we have to find other creative ways to get it into their tummies. I'll be trying the capsules next to hopefully avoid this issue.
I gave these to my dog about a half hour before our car trip, as instructed. I think it took about an hour before it actually took effect. After that, he was very mellow, and stayed that way for about 6 hours. So, it actually worked pretty well.
My pup gets horrible motion sickness and these treats help significantly. No more vomiting or drooling on car rides and he thinks he's getting a treat.
My 15+ yr old pup has never enjoyed travel. These are the best product I've found for him. Although the instructions indicate giving 1/2 hour in advance, my boy requires at least an hour ahead of time and works best after 2 hours. But the best part of all = IT WORKS!
This was the very first calming treat I ever used, well before CBD came into popularity. I’ve since tried other types of calming treats and NONE work like these do. They work for my doberman and my dachshund.
We have our first puppy and discovered he barfs in the car. He gets very nervous about new things. So we aren’t sure if he’s nervous or has motion sickness. Either way, these are amazing, awhile after taking, he is calm. Instead of barfing in the car, he enjoys the view or sleeps. What a relief. We also tried in a storm and he was much calmer. They do smell terrible, but my food motivated pup doesn’t care about that.
This product does NOT work!!!!! Buyers beware. My puppy is 35 pounds and throws up every time he’s in the car. He threw up still while taking this product, if not more then normal!!!!
We have a lab/husky mix, anxious in the car and we recently moved to a new house. We discovered these treats by a vet-tech friend of ours, we drove from Chicago to Colorado to go hiking, dog did ok in the car, but on the way home we tried these treats and he was great. Yes they smell absolutely terrible, BUT, they worked for us. Don't let all the angry cat people steer you away from at least trying these once. They calm our pup just fine, he is about 60+lbs just turned 2, we give him 4 at a time and he mellows out. They work well enough to calm him without making him act any different other than calm/sleepy and cuddly.
