Do you mean Gravol? Dimenhydrinate?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
quater tablet. originally from the vet she had cerenia. thats when she started to stop eating
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
at 70$ per pill we were told gravol would help.
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 6 months ago

That's a very high price tag for a single tablet Gravol. The average cost internationally is less than $1 tab USD. Dimenhydrinate is typically used in cases of motion sickness and not nausea. Additionally, this medication should be available in your area over the counter. Here's an example: https://www.canadadrugsonline.com/ViewshoppingCart.aspx I am wondering if this is the same medication they prescribed. Can you share a picture of the prescription label?

Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 6 months ago

This is cerenia. So, it sounds like you've giving cerenia and gravol. The way it was written above it sounded like gravol was sold to you at $70/tablet which is very high.

Have any other medications aside from the cerenia and gravol been tried?

Has your vet performed bloodwork? If so, do you have a copy to share?

It looks like they have performed a CBC. Do you know if a chemistry was performed? A pancreatic profile?

Were any abdominal diagnostics performed such as ultrasound?
