Cerenia now available for dogs

    Veterinarians see between 16 to 28 cases of acute vomiting each month, according to Pfizer Animal Health, which announced that Cerenia (maropitant citrate) is now available to treat canine vomiting.

    Vomiting is a common reason for veterinary visits, according to Pfizer research, with an estimated 10 million dogs experiencing vomiting each year for many reasons, including motion sickness.

    Cerenia is the first medication that prevents and treats canine vomiting regardless of whether it is signaled by the central or peripheral pathway.

    Once-daily Cerenia is available in easy-to-give tablets or as an injection.

    The most common side effects are excessive drooling, lethargy, appetite loss and diarrhea.
