MOTION SICKNESS IN DOGS
Creature Companions|August 2021
Hey there… dog parents!!
Mriganka Chandra

Don't you feel that every new day in our lives brings forth a new discovery for us as dog parents? Even after 11 years of dog parenting, I am constantly surprised.

On a random day in June, I decided to plan a beach trip for my doggo. Not having visited the beach in last 6 months made both of us crave a nice dip at the beach and hence the plan was finalized.

On Saturday, we set out at 4 p.m. in evening for the beach. Our destination was approximately 2 hours from my place and I was comfortably settled at the back seat of a safari along with Joey (my Goldie) and my mother. Joey loves to sit by the window seat as I roll down the windows for him every once in a while. Suddenly, after half an hour of our journey, I started observing Joey being extremely uncomfortable and the first thought that hit my brain was the obvious – of my dog needing a pee break. We stopped by the side and I took Joey for a quick pee round. He peed and sat back but the discomfort did not vanish. Another 15 minutes into the journey, to my horror, Joey puked. Honestly, I wish I was wrong but I aptly understood the situation. My dog was showing signs of motion sickness for the first time in his life.

Yes, for those of you who are new to this, our dogs suffer from motion sickness just as we do. It is not a matter of severe concern or panic till you take the required precautions and take good care of your dog. A vehicle has restricted space, which is frightening for many dogs. The aim is to make them feel at ease in the car.

THE PET CARE ECOSYSTEM IS ON THE VERGE OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND DISRUPTION

Supertails is your one-stop solution when it comes to pet wellness and health care needs. You can shop for pet food, accessories, grooming essentials and even book online vet consultation for your pets. The trio, Vineet Khanna, Varun Sadana and Aman Tekriwal, who founded Supertails have worked together in start-ups like Snapdeal and Licious. Vineet and Varun come from IIM Lucknow and Aman is a Chartered Accountant. It did not take long for them to decide that they were not cut-out for big established companies. Vineet with a stint of 5 and half years and Varun with 3 and a half years with Tata and Uniliver respectively started working with start-ups. Their working together in Licious (fresh meat brand) is what triggered a dream of starting off something of their own.
