HomeoPet Travel Anxiety is formulated by veterinarians specifically for dog travel anxiety and cat travel anxiety. Travel Anxiety may include dog car sickness, cat car sickness, dog motion sickness or cat motion sickness as well as fear of travelling.
Unlike other solutions, HomeoPet Anxiety is not a tranquiliser or sedative. Therefore, it is non-sedating, non-habit forming and it works rapidly.
It is a natural, plant-based formula with no side effects. It generally results in a calmer pet and is easily administered in liquid form. HomeoPet Anxiety has been formulated by veterinarians and has been clinically trialled worldwide.
For general anxiety issues, you may wish to refer to HomeoPet Anxiety. However, there are circumstances where the two products can work well together. For example, plane travel can cause general anxiety as well as motion sickness. The use of both HomeoPet Anxiety and HomeoPet Travel Anxiety is recommended in this case.
Symptoms include cat or dog vomiting, cat or dog drooling, cat or dog panting, restlessness or unwanted behaviour.

7 Tips for Holiday Travel with Your Pet and Dog Travel Anxiety
Many families consider pets to be part of their family and choose to take them on holidays. However, car travel with pets is not always easy, especially when the family pet experiences cat or dog car sickness. HomeoPet Travel Anxiety works on both dog car sickness and cat car sickness but also with general pet motion sickness. Travel types include planes, trains, automobiles – cars and transport to and from various activities or relocations. HomeoPet Travel Anxiety assists by working to prevent throwing up as a result of motion sickness.
Some dogs may resist getting into the car, giving out shrill yelps, while cats meow plaintively, salivating and drooling even before getting into the car. Some pets happily jump into the car, but the moment the engine starts and the car begins to move, their heads hang down and you may notice your cat or dog drooling, eventually into developing into cat or dog car sickness after some distance. Some dogs look out the window, flicking their heads in different directions as things move by, and quite rapidly it may not take long for you to notice your dog drooling, panting, salivating or getting cat or dog car sickness.
Cat car anxiety or dog car anxiety can negatively impact the family holiday, so HomeoPet has put together seven helpful tips to help make pet car travel more comfortable, enjoyable and safe for your whole family.
Below are some helpful tips from HomeoPet to help make car rides more comfortable and safe for your pet, and your family:
- Seat your pet securely in the car, either with a harness, crate or barrier. Allowing your pet to roam freely in the car can be dangerous for the pet and distracting for the driver. For pets with visual cue cat or dog motion sickness, putting them down on the floor of the car where they cannot see out can often be very helpful.
- If your pet is not accustomed to travelling in the car, take some short trips, gradually increasing his time to get him used to longer rides. Bring a favourite toy and blanket for comfort.
- Your pet should have a very light meal in the three hours before travel. An empty stomach is usually more prone to nausea. Some pets will respond better on a reasonably full stomach, but if it comes up, it could mean a lot of cleaning. Keep pets hydrated with small amounts of water.
- Make frequent stops, allowing pets time to exercise and relieve themselves. Be sure your pet is wearing identification tags or has a microchip in case he does run away or gets lost.
- Never leave your pet in the car unattended. They can easily overheat, even when windows are left open. Always be careful with an open window—pets may jump out at the wrong time, or get stuck in them.
- Be sure your pet’s mandated vaccinations are up to date, and ask your vet for a health certificate to bring along. Pack any medications your pet might be taking, or might need in an emergency. Researching local veterinarians and emergency clinics in the area you intend to visit can save you valuable time in an emergency.
- If your pet does experience cat or dog motion sickness, use HomeoPet’s Travel Anxiety before you begin your trip.
