Cerenia for Dogs

What is Cerenia for dogs?

Cerenia is one of the first medications that may be able to help dogs with motion sickness; this medication may also prevent mild vomiting. Cerenia is a medication that usually is only given to a dog that is older than 8 weeks old. The dog may need a full evaluation from a licensed Veterinarian before the dog can be prescribed this medication. Often, this medication is normally only found in a Veterinarians office, this would need a prescription to allow the dog to take the medication. You can read below for more information pertaining Cerenia for dogs.

If a dog that swallowed a penny and had it removed could the dog die from the Cerenia shot that was given before the removal of the penny?

In most cases, where a Cerenia shot was given, there are not usually any serious reactions, the most common side effect is pain where the injection was given. In some cases, this medication was even tested up to 3 times the dose recommended and normally there were no major side effects. If the dog actually was confirmed dead due to the Cerenia shot then it might be a good idea to report the cases to the drug company. It may also be possible that the penny that the dog swallowed caused many problems with the dog. A penny can cause hemolysis; this is where the red blood cells are destroyed because of the toxicity levels that the zinc in a penny contains.

Does the Cerenia shot cause a dog to be drowsy?

Cerenia in some cases, should not cause a dog to become drowsy, normally the only effect this medication has on a dog is diarrhea and appetite loss; however, these are usually very rare. There are some possibilities why a dog might be drowsy or lethargic; one reason being the dog is dehydrated especially if the dog has had diarrhea, or vomiting. If the dog is very lethargic, dogs can have pedialyte around 2 to 3 ounces around every few hours. Giving the dog pedialyte in those increments may be able to help rehydrate the dog by giving the dog electrolytes. If the dog is severely dehydrated then a veterinarian visit may be needed.

Can a dog that is on Cerenia for stomach problems cause a dog not to be able to sleep or eat?

In some cases, Cerenia is very unlikely to cause a dog to not want to sleep. The most likely cause is that the dog cannot sleep from the pain that is in the stomach. Cerenia is normally used to give a dog relief from vomiting, which can help with the pain. In the case where the dog is not eating, this may be from the medication; also this may cause a dog to lose their appetite. If the dog does not regain their appetite then a vet visit might be needed.

How safe is Cerenia for a dog?

Cerenia is a medication that is normally used for a dog that has motion sickness; this medication is normally very safe for a dog. Cerenia however does have some minor side effects such as excessive salivation and diarrhea. Other than those side effects, there may not be any major side effects that can occur in a dog.

When a dog owner’s dog becomes sick such as throwing up or motion sick, pet owners may not know their options. Cerenia is one of the few medications that may help a dog with those symptoms. Cerenia however may have some side effects but usually these are not very severe. Many owners do have many questions when giving their dog a new medication. You can contact the thousands of Experts for fast and reliable answers.

    I have a 4 year old spayed chihuahua/Maltese. On the 23rd she had a lot of bloody mucus in her stool. Tonight she had another occurrence. What could it be? Her energy is fine. She is playful and just went on long walk.
  • I have an almost 7 month old golden doodle who got into a bottle

    I have an almost 7 month old golden doodle who got into a bottle of zicam while I was at work. I have no idea how many she ate as I cleaned a bunch up that was broken all over the floor. This happened over 5 hours ago. There has been no vomiting or diarrhea and stool seems to look normal. She also has been her normal hyper puppy self! I didn't think anything of it as the first few articles I read online say zinc salts is what zicam is and does not cause toxicity in dogs, and other articles say she might need blood transfusions? If she seems fine, are we in the clear?
