|Indication||Cerenia is a potent NK-1 receptor antagonist that acts by blocking the binding of Substance P, thus preventing vomiting.|
|Contraindications||The safety of Cerenia has not been established during pregnancy and lactation, and in puppies less than 8 weeks of age and thus Cerenia is not recommended for these classes of dog. It is recommended that a benefit/risk assessment be carried out and discussed with the owner. Not to be used in food producing species of animals.|
|Actions||Antiemetic. Maropitant is a neurokinin (NK1) receptor antagonist that blocks the pharmacological action of substance P in the CNS.|
|Precautions||Emesis can be associated with serious, severely debilitating conditions, and the cause should be investigated. Products such as CERENIA should be used in conjunction with other supportive measures. CERENIA should not be used concomitantly with Ca-channel antagonists as maropitant has affinity for Ca-channels. Maropitant is metabolised in the liver and therefore should be used with caution in dogs with liver disease. Maropitant is highly bound to plasma proteins and may compete with other highly bound drugs. Therefore use cautiously with other highly protein bound drugs or in dogs that have reduced plasma protein binding capacity such as aged or hypoproteinaemic animals. CERENIA should be used with caution in animals suffering from, or with a predisposition to, heart disease.|
|Dosage and Administration||Cerenia Injectable Solution is administered SC or intravenously at 1 mL/10 kg for the treatment and prevention of acute vomiting in dogs from 8 weeks of age and cats from 16 weeks of age. It may be given for up to five consecutive days.|
