Prevent Perioperative Vomiting With CERENIA When Using Opioids
As part of your preoperative protocol when you use opioids as preanesthetic agents, CERENIA® (maropitant citrate) can help prevent perioperative vomiting in your canine patients, as well as to help them return to normal feeding sooner.11,21
Efficacy in Preventing Perioperative Vomiting
Many dogs experience vomiting following the administration of some opioids.1O CERENIA can significantly reduce vomiting when used as part of a preoperative protocol.1O,11
A blinded, placebo-controlled study demonstrated that dogs treated with CERENIA 45 minutes before preoperative administration of morphine vomited significantly (p<O.O5) less than placebo-treated dogs.11
Helping Your Patients Return to Normal Feeding Sooner
Preoperative Administration Study11
The study showed that significantly (p<O.O5) more dogs treated with CERENIA prior to surgery returned to normal feeding† by 2O hours than did placebo-treated dogs.
- Patients were 31 dogs undergoing routine spay or neuter under isoflurane.
- Dogs were assigned to 1 of 2 treatment groups:
- CERENIA (1 mg/kg SC), n=15
- Saline (O.1 mL/kg), n=16
- Each dog received CERENIA or saline 45 minutes before preoperative administration of morphine.
- Vomiting events were recorded for 3O minutes until propofol induction.
- Dogs were offered their normal dry diet at 2, 3, 6 and 2O hours post-surgery.
91% of canine patients experienced faster return to normal feeding22
Preoperative Protocols Survey21
Veterinarians reported that:
Value of Comfort
That's the percentage of veterinarians who said that pet owners reacted positively when told in advance that their pet would receive an antiemetic.21
And that's the percentage of dog owners who said they'd definitely or probably choose treatment to prevent opioid-induced vomiting in their pet.22
CERENIA can help your canine patients and your team by preventing vomiting caused by opioids during spay, neuter, dental and other common procedures.
