Q. Cat started daily dose of 0.5ml.(5mg) Maropitant compounded oral suspension on Nov.20, last dose was Jan. 2.Stopped med because cat was acting strange

A. It is very unusual to prescribe maropitant for such a long period, I usually never prescribe it for more than a week, it is possible that long term use of this drug is causing those side effects.

Did your cat received maropitant because of vomiting? if so was the cause of vomiting found?
