We are moving to Texas next month its a good 10-12 hour ride-- probably going to be closer to 12 hours as im driving an older slower truck with just me and the animals. Im planning on making a trip back home to MS to pick up ALL my animals at one time. They will not be alone at home while im moving-- hubby is staying behind to sell the house. The two shepherds will be in kennels in the bed of the truck, the two cats will be in kennels in the backseat of the truck and my hairless dog will be in her carseat up front with me. Beavis is my new addition as most of yall know. We are going tomorrow for a senior panel and other bloodwork and a general checkup since he hasnt been to the vet since 1994. Beavis does NOT do well at all in kennels and most definatly in moving vehicles. Should i ask for a sedative to give him just prior to piling in the truck? He howls, salivates excessivly, and throws himself around the kennel. I just want to get some reactions from yall. The rest of my animals do well travelling. PB is an excellent traveler nice and quiet. Beavis is just the exact opposite. im afraid hes going to stress himself out more than needed during the move-- also im planning on making this a one day trip-- there will be no overnites just potty stops. All the animals will be in their own kennels. There are no stores that sell feliway around here- I would have to drive over 2 hours into another state the opposite way to even come close to finding a store that has it. believe me i have checked. Online shopping isnt an option right now as funds are tight and we have closed our bank accounts in anticipation of the move in a couple of weeks, so we have no credit or debit cards. I used to have to use Acepromazine to sedate my chinese crested when we had kids over and im a vet tech so i know about the drugs/sedatives and reactions and such.
