Anyone can Give Advice on Calming Tablets?


Here is a question from a Boston Terrier owner named Trudi asking other Boston Terrier owners about calming tablets.

She says : “Hi everyone! I’m flying my Boston girl tomorrow for the first time. Its a 2 hour flight, but that means she’ll be in the crate for about 4 hours. Just wanted to know if anyone can give me advice on calming tablets, etc – what works, what’s allowed, if its even necessary. Thanks! 🙂 “

Does anyone have any suggestions, experiences or recommendations? 🙂

Do NOT use Benadryl or Dramamine can kill your dog! Idiots will say small dose etc but they are just that, idiots!

I took my dog to the vet She gave me a prescription drug that works well and usually is a good price at Kroger

Is she used to being crated? If not, I would have been introducing her to a crate several weeks prior to your trip. But if she is accustomed to being crated, I don’t know why there would even be a problem. I used to crate Rosco Ziggy on my Harley on road trips with stops every couple of hours. He always did great on any trip and was always ready to jump back on and get into his crate.
I wish you both a pleasant trip.
