GoPetFriendly.com and CERENIA® (maropitant citrate) Partner to Make Travel Easier for Dogs

From the very beginning, our mission here at GoPetFriendy.com has been to make it easier (and more fun) for you to travel with your pets. But if you’ve ever dealt with it, you know that nothing ruins a trip faster than discovering your dog is suffering from motions sickness.

That’s why we are delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with CERENIA® (maropitant citrate), the first and only FDA-approved veterinary medication that safely and effectively prevents vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs! Together, we’ll be creating campaigns to help educate dog owners on ways to create a more comfortable travel experience for their pups.

  • That’s so sad, Dawn – poor Max! We don’t want him to have to stay home, and we definitely don’t want him to be sick. I really hope this helps!

  • i will tell my client about this, she can’t take her dog a mile without him getting sick. I hope this works so she doesn’t have to leave Max at home when they go to fun places like Mammoth!

  • It might also be something she’ll grow out of, Roxanne – I know a lot of dogs do. Fingers crossed that you find the right combo for little Clover!

  • It’s always good to hear from someone in the profession that they like how it works. We’ve never had to use it with Ty or Buster (knock on wood) but the research I did definitely showed that people like it. Thanks so much for your note, JoAnn!

  • Thank you, Jen! We’re really excited about it.

  • What a great partnership! Looking forward to more on this!

  • Very cool good for you! Love Cerenia at the clinic, we mainly use it in sick dogs since not to many of our clients have motion sickness in their pets but good thing to have.

  • Wow! This is awesome! Way to go!
