What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Cerenia is a prescription motion sickness for dogs and vomiting treatment medication. It is effective for treating dog nausea too and the active ingredient in the medication works by blocking brain signals that trigger the nausea and / or vomiting and prevent dogs from getting motion sickness. It may also promote less drooling or excessive lip licking and panting due to motion sickness and dogs will take a dosage of the medication that is determined by their size and body weight.

You can buy Cerenia with a prescription, and your lowest price on it will be when you order pet medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.
