We are going on vacation Saturday. Our Beagle does not travel well at all. He shakes and cried the whole time. Back in April, we made the same drive. It's about 12 hours. With stops it's going to be about 14-15 hours. I was scared for this poor dog. He is a year old, and I was afraid he was going to have a heart attack. His little heart was beating so very fast!!
We were in contact with our vet for the duration of the trip. He prescribed Valium.We started out giving Max 1/2 a pill, by the end of the trip, the vet had us giving him a whole pill every 2 hours. And he still wouldn't calm down.
Does anyone know of a way to help him through this?? Boarding him is not an option, my husband refuses, and I don't know of any good ones around where we live.
Thanks for any advice!!
