Canine Motion Sickness is More Common Than You Think

Motion sickness presents itself with clear enough signs—drooling, excessive panting, shaking and vomiting—but it’s a widely underreported condition.

Veterinarians have reported incidence rates of approximately 1%, while a national survey shows 21% of dog owners reporting one or more signs of motion sickness. Only 6% of dog owners who observe the signs report them to a veterinarian—remarkable, given that pets are usually driven in cars to your clinic.19
