Cerenia for car sickness

Has anyone tried the new medication Cerenia for car sickness yet? I am taking Lola on a car trip this week and would like to get the medication but was curious if anyone had any experience with it before I get it.

I have Cerenia to use with Logan, my vet gave it to me with no problems, but I have not used it yet as I have not had to take him anywhere lately. Let me know how it works. The only problem I had with it was you had to feed them, wait an hour, give pill and wait another 2 hours before driving. A little time consuming!! I would love to know how you make out.

Well, if I have to give food 2 hours before I leave, we are in trouble if the drug does not work. I will let you know next week how we do.

Lola, that is just what I remember, I would check with your vet. Apparently this is NOT a car sickness/motion sickness drug. This drug is actually to stop vomitting. I would def. call your vet, it wasnt expensive & certainly worth a try.

Please do let us know, I am wanting to take Reece with me Christmas Day, to play with his half brother, but he always gets car sick.

Peace, Love & Havanese

No, Amanda. What I gave her was an herbal relaxant called "Quiet Moments". The main active ingredients in it are chamomile, passion flower, and ginger. It did work well for that poor, sick, drooly little guy, didn't it?

Lola- you should try the medication Leslie used. This puppy wouldn't quit droolilng and was crazy sick and it helped him.

My vet just gave me Cerenia for when we go to FLorida for Christmas. But i found out they tested these on Beagle puppies. There are several side effects i recommend you read from their product study website. It includes death, severe drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.... The dogs will still 'feel' sick but just wont vomit(maybe).

I am not so sure i will use this even though i have it. I just dont know. I cant find anyone who has used this to get an opinion.

Here is the link for the study results:
