Dr. Dee,

Do you have any experience with homeopathy helping dogs with car anxiety? My dog resists getting in the car. I cannot get her in alone as she is a golden retriever. We have not had an accident; I believe she is afraid of the bumps in the road of that we're going to the vet. The only success I have had requires someone sitting in the back with her, which is not always possible. Help! 

Hello and thank you for your question. It's somewhat common, so I do have a recommendation for you.

For dogs with car anxiety, you can first try homeopathic remedy Aconite a few minutes before getting in the car. 

Try some short trips that are fun and involve treats! Go someplace that has a burger for her, or some yogurt — something fun! Make it low pressure for yourself so she's not also reacting to your worry. Gentle practice can future longer trips less stressful for you both.

Best of luck!
