What's an Antiemetic?

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.

Dosage and Administration

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.

For Prevention of Acute Vomiting (Cerenia Tablets)

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).

For Prevention of Acute Vomiting in dogs 7 months of age and older: Administer Cerenia Tablets orally at a minimum dose of 2 mg/kg (0.9 mg/lb) body weight once daily until resolution of acute vomiting.

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.
