Drug maker Pfizer has created a pill designed to reduce motion sickness in dogs . The Cerenia drug is designed to reduce the likelihood of travel sickness in pets, which is the result of inconsistencies between the information received by the brain from the eyes and the sensory system in the inner ear which is more sensitive to movement.
It is estimated that one in six dogs suffers from motion sickness, meaning this drug could be a significant breakthrough for pet owners. Whilst the drug has yet to be applied to dogs on a large scale, it has been used previously to prevent vomiting after chemotherapy . Larger breeds are more vulnerable to suffering from motion sickness, particularly younger dogs.
