Health Questions & Answers



My 7 mo. old standard poodle puppy has terrible anxiety and excessive drooling while in the car. He is never willing to go for a car ride with us. I have tried short trips around the neighborhood, treats, play, and soft music, but nothing seems to work.

I would like some advice that does not include medication. I use a holistic vet, and prefer to non-medicate with conventional meds. My vet says to continue to expose him & eventually he will get over the fear. I have a Thunder Shirt, but have not tried it for car use. The vet also said that Rescue Remedy may help, but as yet I haven't purchased it.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

You might want to try Anxietrex. It contains many homeopathic remedies that were selected to address the more common causes of anxiety in our pets. I would give a half dose twice daily and another half dose before the car ride. Rescue Remedy can be helpful as well. Please let me know how you do. I have other ideas that I can share if something more is needed.

Best regards,
