We believe that trustworthy information is essential in helping you make better decisions about your health and care.
Your symptoms will usually get better when you stop moving, but may carry on for a few hours.
They tend to get better or go away completely on long trips, such as on a ship, as you adapt to the motion.
(A pelt is a matt that has been left to gather more hair to the point whereby it becomes too tight to the skin to comb out.
It causes bruising to the skin and can cause a lot of discomfort and pain).
Only the central fur along his back was clear of matts due to the fact that this was the only place on his body he allowed his owners to comb.
Kajal’s coat was matted all over under the top layer of grey fluff.
This was one rare time whereby I had failed to actually ask the client how matted their cats’ coat was!
In very rare cases, Dramamine produces an unfortunate bout of diarrhea and vomiting.
