Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking what is Cerenia? Cerenia, also known as Maropitant citrate, is a drug marketed to treat acute vomiting in dogs.

An article that might be helpful to you is the drug library article on Cerenia medication. Another article that might be helpful is Vomiting in Cats.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
