Default excessive panting in the car

Hey guys, weird thing has just happened to Oggie the past few times in the car.....really excessive panting, yawning, and licking the lips. *The panting is so much that it worries me, like he's going to pass out. *I try turning the heat off/on, windows open/closed, everything. *Up until recently, he was perfect in the car for hours. *He'd just sit there or sleep. *But the last few trips he's panting like crazy. Once we get out, he's back to normal! *He's not a panter unless he's been running around and out of breath so this is abnormal. *You think this is an anxiety thing? *He hasn't gone anywhere bad in the car lately, in fact almost everywhere we go he loves it there because we're going to play with other dogs. *Very weird

Maybe he's over excited to play with the other doggies. Is it only when he KNOWS he is going to play with other dogs? Or just all the time now? Sometimes I dont tell Seven before we go to the park that were going there, he gets overexcited when he knows.

Sounds to me like hes anxious to get where hes going, have you went to the vet lately? They do remember...lol... I wouldnt worry and always bring a water bottle and a bowl with you in case you think he is over heated. Newt pants in the car alot but when they get excited they do that! I dont think its anything to be worried about Does Oggie slobber? Newt just started slobbering, I have to bring a rag with me everywhere I go now..lol

Well thats what my friend said too, because I went to his house today and he was panting on the way. *But he did it on the way home too. *I don't think he ever really knows where we are going because I don't really have a regular routine of anything. *I'm almost wondering if he's developing car sickness or something

I actually haven't been to the vet in a while (thank god for once!) The water bottle is a good idea, he did seem thirsty. *He doesn't really slobber unless he's running around outside he will drool a bit. *He's not full grown yet though so there could be more to come.

Hanna get VERY anxious in the car after a bit. *She will go from front to back, back to front over and over again, whine pant what not. *It normally because she know (I think) that she is going to play or to training. *She get very excited but thank god she does no pee!!

LOL@ Hanna... as for Oggie, Id bring the water, perhaps talk to him as you are driving... this sounds silly but I sing to Newt, not saying she loves it but I think it helps. Perhaps its because he doesnt know where you are going....lol.

My pit bull would pant alot and lick his lips in the car when he was getting car sick. *It usually only happened when he hadn't been taken for a ride in a while. *Once we started going for rides often it would stop. *Not say it is the same thing but just one thing to consider.

He does give me that look like "help me" so I do sense something is wrong. *Sickness is a possibility. *We go for a ride almost every day though! *Although this week with the bad weather I didn't take him as much. *Hmm weird

Gaby does the same thing I don't think she likes the car to much, and I am sure it has to do with motion sickness....I'm hoping she will grow out of it soon....I've been taking her in the car often hopping she will eventually get used to it
