Cerenia Information

Cerenia is a dog and cat medicine. It is an antiemetic medicine that is commonly bought for dogs to prevent vomiting from motion sickness. It is a very reliable medicine to have when travelling with your pet. It can treat mild or acute vomiting. Sometimes it’s given as an injection to prevent vomiting prior to surgery if opioids are used as a preanesthetic drug. Mostly Cerenia is provided as a tablet that can be administered at home. So you simply need to give it to a dog that is affected by car sickness before you begin the trip. A tablet can also be given as a way to extend therapy for a dog that has received an injection.

How To Use

Cerenia contains a potent ingredient called maropitant citrate. It is a neurokinin-1 receptor antagonist. Maropitant is able to block the action of a neurotransmitter (substance P) that triggers vomiting in the central nervous system. Thus, Cerenia is ideal for acute vomiting in dogs. This vomiting is so serious that it continues even when the dog has eaten nothing. Once a Cerenia injection is given, maropitant in it will stop the substance P from binding to the NK1 receptor. This will stop vomiting.

For a sick cat, talk to the veterinarian first as the cause of vomiting can be anything. It has to be known prior to prescribing Cerenia. To prevent acute vomiting at home, give Cerenia once daily. To prevent vomiting due to motion sickness, administer Cerenia with a small meal about two hours prior to travelling. You can do this for two consecutive days.

Puppies between two to seven months old should be given Cerenia for five days in a row. Dogs older than seven months should receive a tablet daily for the period the veterinarian says.

Side Effects

Cerenia may cause the following side effects:

  • Drowsiness
  • Lethargy
  • Anorexia
  • Diarrhea
  • Hypersalivation.

Report these side effects to the dog’s veterinarian.


Prior to giving Cerenia to the dog in question, ensure that it can take it safely. Discuss important safety matters with the veterinarian to keep your dog safe. Also:

  • Don’t give Cerenia to a dog that is below 2 months of age.
  • Cats taking Cerenia should not be younger than 4 months old.
  • Don’t give Cerenia to dogs that suffer from gastrointestinal obstruction
  • Cerenia is not for dogs that have eaten toxins
  • Avoid in cats or dogs with hepatic dysfunction.

Keep away from children’s reach as even topical exposure can cause a localized allergic skin reaction.
