Some puppies, just like some humans, lose their lunch in trains, planes, and automobiles. Thankfully, the FDA just approved a new drug for motion sick dogs.
The medication is also good for pups that suffer from dehydration or other problems associated with severe vomiting. A press release issued by the FDA says:
The medication, Cerenia, can be administered orally or with a shot.
