The safety of Cerenia has not been established in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs. Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, and a drug interaction may be anticipated. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.
Side effects may include lethargy, drooling and vomiting. If stomach upset occurs, try giving the medication with food. These symptoms may go away during treatment. If these symptoms continue, contact your veterinarian. Adverse effects with cephalosporins have a relatively low frequency and are usually not serious. However, if your pet experiences signs of allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of face, lips, tongue, or hives) contact your veterinarian immediately. Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.
Cerenia should be given orally as directed by your veterinarian.
