Description

Cerenia is indicated for the prevention of acute vomiting and prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. It is intended for use in dogs 8 weeks of age or older.

For: Dogs only (8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:
  • Great for hot spots, rashes
  • Prevents acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs
  • Comes in 4 different size tablets for various weight classes

  • How it works: 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.

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. In case of accidental eye exposure, flush with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.
