"That was the other reason I went to compounded Cerenia - the ability to really dial in her dosage. Eleanor is 9 pounds and we tried to keep her at about 4 mg (much easier to do with the suspension than with tablets) per dose. The guidance is about 1 mg per kg of body weight for cats. Every other day should be okay for your kitty according to what I've been told and have read. If she needs a daily dose, then you would need to take a break from the med after 5 consecutive days. So a 5 days on, 2 days off type of thing."
On taking a break from Cerenia after 5 days, I just spoke to my vet last month about this and she says although this used to be true in the beginning when the first studies were done on dogs, it isn't followed anymore. She gave the go-ahead for my cat to have Cerenia daily as a preventative if I wanted to use it. With no breaks. Just an FYI.
