I'm writing to see if anyone can give me any advice.
My Spinone is 6 years old. He has always been very nervous, especially outside the house. We don't have a car and he is terrified of them. It is almost impossible to get him in one, and once inside he gets in a bad state.
We are planning to move to Italy and are very worried about how we are going to get Lui there. We think flying will be impossible,so have decided we will have to drive him.
Can anyone give me any advice on any tranquilisers we could give him. He gets quite aggressive when he is scared so I think it would be very difficult to get him into a cage.
Any help anyone can give be would be very much appreciated!
