Cerenia treats vomiting and motion sickness in dogs. It contains the active ingredient, maropitant citrate. Maropitant citrate blocks certain signals in your pet’s brain to help prevent vomiting. While other medications can make your pet drowsy, Cerenia does not. It effectively manages motion sickness without sedating your dog.


Dogs (8 weeks of age or older)


  • Prevents acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs
  • Non-sedating
  • Comes in 4 different size tablets for various weight classes

How it works:

Cerenia is considered an antiemetic. It helps control acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. Vomiting occurs when a certain substance called substance P in the brain is triggered. Maropitant citrate, the ingredient in Cerenia, blocks substance P thus controlling the vomiting reaction.
