What is Cerenia?

Cerenia® (maropitant citrate) is the #1 choice among veterinarians for the prevention of acute vomiting in dogs as well as vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. Veterinarians also turn to Cerenia to help prevent vomiting in dogs before surgery when opioids are used as a preanesthetic. It is intended for use in dogs 8 weeks of age or older. Cerenia requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs only (8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:

  • Vomiting prevention helps provide comfort to your dog and brings you peace of mind
  • Cerenia can be administered in the clinic by injection and comes in tablets for safe and easy use at home for as long as your dog needs it
  • Comes in 4 different size tablets for various weight classes
  • Once a day dosing
  • Non-sedating

Cautions:

Safe use has not been evaluated in cats and dogs with gastrointestinal obstruction, or those that have ingested toxins. Use with caution in cats and dogs with hepatic dysfunction. Not for use in humans. Keep out of reach in children. Topical exposure may elicit localized allergic skin reactions in some individuals. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice. Repeated or prolonged exposure may lead to skin sensitization. Wash hands with soap and water after administering drug. Cerenia is also an ocular irritant.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

Possible side effects of Cerenia:

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Cerenia and seek emergency veterinary care: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; hives); sudden onset of diarrhea; vomiting; shock; seizures; coma. Topical exposure may elicit localized allergic skin reactions, and repeated or prolonged exposure may lead to skin sensitization. 

Storage:

Store this product at controlled room temperature.

Directions:

Give Cerenia as directed by your veterinarian. For prevention of motion sickness, Cerenia should be given 2 hours before traveling, but you should not feed your pet for at least 1 hour before giving Cerenia. Do not embed Cerenia in hot dogs, sausage, hard cheese or pill pockets to give the tablet as this may decrease efficacy by delaying absorption.
