    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    Thanks for writing. Perhaps he could have been a bit dehydrated when I took him to the vet, but he gets 75 ml sub-Q twice a week and had it the day before the appt. He eats mostly commercial canned food... no dry... so probably gets some protein in that but not too much I don't think. The vet...

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    Devastating news at the vet yesterday. Jengo's kidney panel showed that the BUN and Creatinine levels were elevated since the last test 78 days ago. Four blood test results from May 2021, Oct. 2021, April 2022 and July 2022 only showed the BUN range fairly stable in the 30s and Creatinine from...

    @ Alldara - I thought about asking the vet about Cerenia injections, but I hate poking him with needles. He gets sub-Q twice a week and hates it. Never heard of Churu... will look that up. Also never heard of chicken flavoured pills. Lots of good tip son this site!!! Thanks!

    @silent meowlook I have also tasted meds to see if they are bitter. Cerenia is awful! I can see why he hates it!

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    Thanks daftcat75. Jengo is down to 8.4# now and skinny. I'll try the smaller capsules for him. I hope the Zofran works better than Cerenia because he needs to be coaxed to eat.

    Thanks artiemom. I always use a syringe to wash down pills too after reading that they can get stuck in the throat. Going to ask the vet about Zofran today.

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    @daftcat75 Thanks for the great tips! I've tried Hills K/D several times and Jengo won't eat it, but I haven't tried A/D... maybe it's more palatable. Will pick up a can at the vet's today. I always take the chill off the canned food too... to encourage him to eat it. Good point about...

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    I just looked up small gel capsules and I'm confused about what size to get. Which size do you use for a small dose of meds.? I think the capsule would have to be very small to pill my little cat. He was on half of a 16mg pill but now I'm trying the compounded liquid Cerenia. It's supposed...

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    Okay. I did some research and found a list of medications for acute vomiting... about 20 different ones! I'm going to ask my vet if he has had experience with any others that we can try. I just don't think Cerenia agrees with Jengo.

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    Never heard of Felimazole... I assume that is an anti-nausea pill too, right? My Jengo was on Mirataz too but it didn't really give him an appetite. It's SO hard to find the right combination of meds for a sick cat... trial and error I guess. Good luck with Feeby!

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    I can relate to the problems with trying to cut a tiny pill. My little guy is also too smart to fall for the cheese trick. Dogs fall for that. :-D Yes, I agree... I need a "preventative rather than a post vomiting solution." And I think a tiny dose would be enough. He is only 8.4# now...

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    I think all my Jengo would need is a sliver of Zofran too as he doesn't have chronic vomiting. Just a little dose every day or even every other day might be enough to control it. Sorry to hear that your guy is on chemo. :-( Very sad that our beloved pets get so many diseases now-a-days.

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    He is so hard to pill... not sure if I can get a small gelatin capsule in him. I also would try to give it every other day. Thanks.

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    Thanks... I'm going to ask my vet if we can try Zofran instead. I'll look for EZComplete to try.

    What is your experience with Cerenia?

    I tried all the different methods... dry pill, pill pockets, dough, etc... he is very smart and refused them all. That's why I decided to pay the extra money is get the compounded flavored drops... figured it would be easier to administer. Cerenia must taste very bitter because he reacts...
