Have a great, safe trip!

Abby rides in the back seat. Didn't lie down for the first 10 hours and hasn't
eaten in 2 days. She will eat treats but won't touch her regular kibble. So, ya, cut out the treats. Gets lots of water and sleeps good at night from being up all day. On the second day she finally laid down a few times. ...8 more days...

If she's not eating because her stomach is "off", the ginger capsules are a great idea - hope each day gets easier!

I guess the waistline is a positive side effect, but not eating is definitely disturbing!

This is the ginger that I use on Jazz, with great results:

I tried the Whole Foods brand and it was pretty useless. Some fancy supermarkets may carry ginger capsules in the supplement section. I looked and CVS and Walgreen's have it on their websites?

No fun worrying about how the dog is doing when you are traveling, hope things get better!

The homeopathic remedy Nux Vomica is really good for stomach issues and also stimulates appetite. Petroleum is also a good one but I don't think it would be readily available whereas you could get Nux Vomica in a local health food store.

Don't forget about slippery elm! Where will you be passing through next? Maybe we can find a health food store for you.

She will eat any treats, hamburger, hot dog but not her regular kibble.
Doesn't seem sick just VERRRY fussy.
Thanks for all your help. Trying canned dog food next.

PaddyD, I don't like to work too hard to entice a dog to eat if they are stressed and don't feel like eating. This could potentially lead to problems. Have you tried feeding Abby after she has a chance to unwind after being in the vehicle?
