ProQuiet and Traveling with Your Pet

ProQuiet For Traveling

Traveling can be a daunting task, and traveling with a pet only makes things harder. Dogs and cats will sometimes experience motion sickness during traveling, but they can also become ill from the stress, anxiety, and routine changes of traveling. ProQuiet uses the ingredients chamomile and ginger to help avoid the onset of travel sickness, and if necessary, to help manage the symptoms associated with it.

Chamomile is one of the oldest beneficial herbs, often used in teas, and has been shown to help with nervousness in pets (Messonnier, 2001). Creating a stress free trip may help to prevent dogs and cats from getting sick while traveling, which is especially important when flying. In a two-year period (2011-2012) 64 pets died from stress related issues during airline transportation (Moon-Massat, 2016).

In addition to helping avoid the onset of stress from traveling, it is important to manage the associated symptoms. Ginger can help minimize gastrointestinal issues and may help with nausea in cats and dogs (Messonnier, 2012). More importantly, perhaps, is that ginger has been shown to help prevent motion sickness in animals (Haniadka, 2013). Administering ProQuiet to your pet for a few days before you travel, as well as while you travel, may not only help manage the symptoms associated with travel sickness, but may also help keep them from getting sick in the first place. ProQuiet can make traveling easier and safer for both owner and pet.
