    Default Any of you folks ever have to give a dog Cerenia?

    Pup had some tummy issues this morning and wouldn’t eat or drink. Threw up clear bile twice. Still has a normal temperature and still playing, just a bit slower than normal. Vet said she’d be lethargic, may not eat, and will have diarrhea for 24hrs or so.
    Vets guess is that she may have eaten something off the ground. Calls it “Puppy ground to mouth syndrome”(humor).

    Had a male lab with chronic pancreatitis that took Cerenia for about four years. Vet gave him an injection first, and then put him on 80mg (half of a 160mg tab) daily. As the vomiting became better controlled, I was able to reduce that to half tab every three days and he did well. I learned to give at meal time, because otherwise, paradoxically, it would cause him to vomit if given on empty stomach. He tolerated it well. Never had problem with loss of appetite or diarrhea once he was stable

    Puppies are the cause of many gray hairs on my head. LOL. Hope she gets better quick.
    The way I look at it, every dog is an opportunity to be a better trainer, and every day is a new day to be a better trainer to the same dog we trained yesterday.

    Jim - Did your vet ever suggest powered enzymes? There is a big site on the Internet relating to this ... www.epi4dogs.com. This approach means the dog gets a food additive rather than a drug. The best source (apparently) is a firm called EnzymeDiane. Mine has been on this treatment for about 6 years.

    Usually Cerenia is given only 4X in a row. I have given it to adults but not pups. One to a dead baby bird eater male and to several bitches after whelping.
