Cerenia is the first and only FDA-approved medication prescribed by veterinarians for dogs to help treat and help prevent vomiting caused by motion sickness. Each tablet is scored, allowing for easy and accurate dosing. As many as 1 in 5 dogs suffer from canine motion sickness, so whether you are taking your furry friend to the vet or going on a road trip together, Cerenia tablets are the number one choice among veterinarians to help stop your pal from feeling sick.
Cerenia is considered an antiemetic. It helps control acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. Vomiting occurs when a certain substance called substance P in the brain is triggered. Maropitant citrate, the ingredient in Cerenia, blocks substance P thus controlling the vomiting reaction.
CERENIA (maropitant citrate) Tablets are indicated for the prevention of acute vomiting and the prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. CERENIA (maropitant citrate) Injectable Solution is indicated for the prevention and treatment of acute vomiting in dogs and for the treatment of vomiting in cats.
For Prevention of Acute Vomiting in dogs 2-7 months of age: Administer Cerenia Tablets orally at a minimum dose of 2 mg/kg (0.9 mg/lb) body weight once daily for up to 5 consecutive days (see Warnings and Animal Safety).

If vomiting persists despite treatment, the case should be re-evaluated. Cerenia is most effective in preventing acute vomiting associated with chemotherapy if administered prior to the chemotherapeutic agent.
