My dog has vertigo and got an injection of 10 mg of Cerenia.

Customer Question
My dog has vertigo...

My dog has vertigo and got an injection of 10 mg of Cerenia. Can I give him 25 mg. of meclizine? He signs 44 pounds. He's holding his head sideways and is unsteady.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your dog?

Can I give my dog 25 mg. of medicine after getting a 10 mg injection of Cerenia for vomiting after being diagnosed with idiopathic vestibular disease?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?

No but is it safe for him to take meclizine after a shot of Cerenia?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is your dog's name and age?

By is a 9 yr. old beagle weighing 44 lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

I took him to the emergency vet today and he was diagnosed with idiopathic vestibular disease and given a 10 ml shot of Cerenia.

Cerenia and meclizine don't interact, and for a 20kg dog your dose of 25mg would be appropriate. The jury is still out on whether it helps dogs with vestibular disease, but it's not going to hurt.
