Nausea Relief for
You and Your Family
Used by families and recommended by doctors for over 60 years, Emetrol is a trusted over-the-counter medication for relieving nausea associated with upset stomach.
Emetrol relieves nausea by calming the stomach, not coating. Unlike antacids (which are generally for heartburn*), Emetrol is intended specifically for nausea. It works by quieting the stomach muscle contractions that can lead to vomiting.
Emetrol contains no antihistamines, alcohol, aspirin, or caffeine. And because it is both strong enough for adults and safe for children ages 2 and up, Emetrol is an essential part of the family medicine cabinet.
Emetrol is the #1 pharmacist-recommended nausea remedy.1

Emetrol and your pets:
Emetrol is a human OTC medication used for nausea and vomiting.
Reasons Dog Owners Will Want to Administer Emetrol
This OTC medication may help dogs when suffering with vomiting & nausea though some dog owners use it to reduce motion sickness. (Recommend benadryl instead) Whatever your reason is, confirm with the Vet first for the correct dosage directions for your dog’s size before administering.
Many of us worry when our pets start vomiting, but it’s completely normal for dogs to get sick during their lives as they tend to eat things they shouldn’t out in yard and while out on walks.
When your dog gets sick and can’t keep anything down, first thing you need to do, is keep them well hydrated, leave plenty of fresh water out and encourage them to drink even when they’re not interested.
Another handy hint is to rub some maple syrup or honey on their gums to keep their sugar levels up.
Always confirm with your Vet before administering any human OTC product to your pet because if they are able to take it, the dosage will be determined according to their size.
Emetrol is quite safe for dogs, though your vet will need to advise you on the dosage requirements based on your dog’s size.
The advantage of Emetrol is the sweet cherry liquid is quite appealing to dogs, making it easier to administer than a tablet. This being said, if your dog is really ill and can’t keep anything down you may have to use a syringe and squirt it down their throat.
Once your vet has advised you of the dosage, you will notice improvements within a few hours. Keep a close eye on your dog to ensure that he doesn’t develop any adverse side effects, but this medication is usually a safe choice and is used by many dog owners.
While vomiting isn’t fatal to dogs, dehydration is. It’s very easy for a dog that is sick to get dehydrated. The only way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to monitor them closely and keep offering them water.
You can always pull the skin up between their shoulder blades to see how quickly it bounces back. If it springs back into place your dog isn’t dehydrated, but if it takes a few seconds to shrink back into place, your dog is suffering with dehydration.
If your dog cannot keep anything down and is vomiting constantly, and he's showing signs of dehydration, Take them to the Vet immediately.
When your dog stops vomiting or comes home from the Vet after being sick, you will want to start him on a very plain diet to help the stomach while it returns to normal.
A mixture of boiled rice and chicken is a great simple meal choice.
Feed very small amounts at regular intervals and watch to see if they get sick or can stomach it. If they are improving you can increase the amount of food for a couple of days before returning to their normal food.
If your dog gets sick once it’s eaten, hold off on food for twelve hours but ensure there is plenty of fresh water available and then try again with a small amount of food thereafter.
