  • CERENIA can be administered in the clinic by injection and comes in tablets for safe and easy use at home for as long as your dog needs it

Vomiting Before Surgery

Did you know that veterinarians may also give CERENIA to dogs before surgery? A significant number of dogs vomit after receiving opioids used as preanesthetics2 and take additional time to return to normal feeding after surgery. Eating is an important indicator of normal healing.

In a clinical study that compared dogs given CERENIA before surgery with dogs given a placebo, significantly more CERENIA-treated dogs returned to normal feeding* by 20 hours after surgery, and they ate almost 5 times as much food.3 Ask your veterinarian if your dog is at risk of preoperative vomiting.
