Aconitum is a great remedy all around and if you have it in your cabinet - it will come in handy if there is ever a sudden shock or trauma (after 9/11 - it was very useful. It also can help with post traumatic stress).
There are some other remedies, if you would be willing to give it another go...
Homeopathy works by treating the individual and while aconite is a great remedy, it might not have suited your friend in this particular case.
For terrible fear - off the top of my head, I would head straight to Arsenicum. Is he a fearful dog in general? Does he clean himself a lot? Does he have digestive issues? Is he generally hot or cold?
If you give me a couple of insights into your dog's personality - things that you think are unique to him - I might be able to help you.

The dog is very scared. i would NOT try this. It didn't help at all. i just went out and spent money on this stuff.
My Great Pyr always seemed to fear the car and would drool when going for a ride. I was told that magnesium deficiency was leading him to have motion sickness. Just adding a magnesium supplement helped.
Does anyone know of a remedy for motion sickness in cats. My cat will be taking a 8 hour flight to England and suffers from severe motion sickness such as vomiting and foaming from the mouth. The doctor does not want him to take any medication
Car Fears - Raw Bones
My dog had a fear of riding in the car even when we went someplace fun. He would whine, pace and drool the entire time.
I've found if I keep him occupied in the car, he doesn't even notice the ride. So whenever we go anyplace longer than a 10-20 minute drive, I buy a large soup bone at the grocery store. He spends the entire ride chewing on the bone and doesn't even notice that he's in the car.
