Scruffy's not doing very well. I can't talk about it. Anyway, the vet has suggested cerenia. I haven't even touched a syringe since The Puffer went off insulin almost four years ago, so the injectible form of cerenia makes me a little nervous to start with. The vet also said - and I've searched and read for hours in the last two days without finding any mention of this - that it stings significantly. I saw several mentions here about dosages that are smaller than I was told to give, and about some restrictions on how long it can be used. I also saw that cerenia was meant to treat vomiting. Scruffy's problem appears to be more in the area of nausea - lots of lip-licking; He is very rarely throwing up, and when he has in the last few days, it's been foam. Anyway, I came home last night with four 4 mg tablets, ($3 each) and gave Scruffy the first one last night. He seemed mildly interested in food within a couple of hours, but not sufficiently to avoid liver problems in the frighteningly near future. And he was hungry this morning, but all he ate was a few pieces of kitten chow dredged in Fancy Feast. (I have food to give him by kitten bottle warming now.) I would appreciate any information about cerenia that you guys have, like 1) pros and cons of using the pills or the injectible, 2) how long to allow between giving the medication and when he is most likely to want to eat, 3) did it appear that this medication caused pain when injected, 4) might ondansetron be a better choice, since there's a lack of vomiting and it seems to be aimed at reduction of nausea, and anything else that might be significant in using this stuff. I couldn't find it listed as cerenia or its generic name at any local pharmacy, but the WalMart website, which has a section for "pet meds", didn't seem to be working last night. My vet keeps a very minimal inventory of drugs; I don't know if I'd have to wait for him to order an injectible or what.
