Colette (my toy poodle) gets car sick almost everytime we take her anywhere. On Sunday when we went to the dog walk/fair I put her in her pet taxi and when we were almost there I hear her throwing up so then I had a to clean her up (my poor baby) when we got there - luckily I had brought along pet wipes just in case and then I rinsed the taxi out with a bottle of water and napkins that I had in my car. On the ride home she was perfectly fine - no problems what so ever.
Now a woman at the fair told me that if she was harnessed down so she couldn't slide around that she probably wouldn't get car sick. She said her dog used to get car sick like that too and when she started putting him in a car/booster seat where he was more stable he no longer has had a problem. But I was like was she telling me that because she was trying to make a sell of her car booster seat (LOL) or could this actually be the cause - maybe Colette is sliding around a bit inside her pet taxi and it is making her sick???? Chloe doesn't have a problem but Colette seems to upchuck almost anytime I take her somewhere.
Was this woman telling me the truth or just trying to make a sell? I am leary of buying a car/booster seat since they are not the cheapest things to buy just to have Colette throw up on it every time I put her in it. Plus if I am going to buy one I want the large size where both Colette and Chloe can ride together and if Colette throws up I don't want it to get on Chloe as well.
I don't know - I am so confused! I don't want to leave poor Colette home everytime we take Chloe somewhere but I don't want my poor little girl getting an upset tummy everytime we go out either.
