Three reasons your dog isn't eating on a road trip
Worry about your dog? Me too. Let's do something about it.
Raise your hand if you have EVER worried about your dog for ANY reason. I get you. I have been there. If you are reading this right now, chances are that your worries surrounding your dog and his or her wellbeing can sometimes seem endless.
Now imagine yourself in a completely different mindset surrounding your dog’s well-being. Imagine eliminating or dramatically reducing the fears, stresses, and anxiety that come when we explore the outdoors with our dogs. Can you imagine how freeing that would be?

Travel with your dog? Ask your vet about these prescription medications.
I group the medications into the three following categories: pain medications for injuries, GI (gastrointestinal medications), and reaction medications (think inflammatory- ie allergies, anaphylaxis, etc.) So under most circumstances these meds should have all the major systems covered without carrying an entire pharmacy. We basically want to reduce pain, reduce chances of dehydration, and treat massive inflammatory responses (reactions) which could be potentially life threatening until you can get to veterinary care.
