• Good Morning! Bella, our dog, sometimes she gets anxious when we’re going on car rides. I wanted to know if there is any kind of over the counter medication that you recommend to give her? We’re going on a trip this sunday and we want to make sure she’s ok. Thank you,

    Hi Matthew,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There are some OTC medications that can be used for mild anxiety. The one that will be best for your pet will depend on a few different factors including your pet’s breed, age, weight, and overall health history including any other medications being given. Your vet knows your pet and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
