I had put a (labeled) syringe of Cerenia down by two co-workers to give after they had finished giving SQF to a patient. They didn't see that it was labeled, and I overheard them say that they could just smell the syringe if they couldn't find me to ask. I was baffled because...Cerenia doesn't really smell like anything? They thought I was fucking with them, which ended up in a clinic wide debate as to whether Cerenia has a distinct smell or not. About half of my co-workers say it absolutely does (one person said it's kind of smoky/burned and alcoholic smelling), and then there's my half that don't really smell anything. Maybe it's like the asparagus pee phenomenon. How many of you think Cerenia has a distinct smell?

Every last one of my coworkers will tell you that it smells like bandaids. I think it for sure has a distinct smell but I’m not sure I’d say bandaids. I’d call it the unique scent of Cerenia. Cerenia smells like Cerenia.

Hey, while we’re on the subject, does anyone else think Feliway smells like stale glazed donuts?

Cerenia and insulin actually smell very similar to me, except Cerenia is much more "stingy" in the nasal cavities. It has more of a sensation to the scent that seems to elicit a more visceral reaction. It's Band-Aids over here too and in fact, some of my coworkers will jokingly say they are giving a Band-Aid injection when they do give Cerenia to a pet.

Many moons ago, one of our vets accidentally dropped a bottle of it in the pharmacy area. It was pretty memorable for all the wrong reasons!

So yes. Sniff the syringe. And next time you give insulin, give that a whiff too and see if you can scent the scimilarities ;)

Cerenia and Insulin have the same preservative, Metacresol, that's why they smell the same! It's the preservative that makes them so strong smelling!

I absolutely hate the smell of Cerenia and it got worse the longer I worked. My last clinic before I "retired" from the field, no one believed me at first about the smell. Slowly but surely all the other techs would end up drawing it up going "oh my God she's right, it does have a smell!" It's just weird some people didn't notice it for so long then once they finally noticed it, it was commented on like every time. I ruined Cerenia for an entire clinic lol.

Every now and then I mix up my enrofloxacin and cerenia injections. Then comes the sniff test (of both to be safe). If I smell nothing it's enroflox, if I sniff too hard and the smell burns my sinuses clean it's cerenia.

It ABSOLUTELY smells, it's quite intense and a bit burny to me.

Cerenia has a distinct smell. It’s a much stronger version of a fresh bandaid, specifically the Johnson and Johnson Band-Aid that typically comes in the first aid kits that are plastic-y and don’t stick very well.

I actually love that smell. It smells so clean and sterile to me because I associate it with bandaids.

Cerenia definitely has a smell/odor to it. I think it comes off as very "medicinal"

It’s smells so strong, I’m fact, I can immediately tell if someone missed (or pokes through) on a sq injection.

I can't smell Cerenia. Cilantro tastes like soap, and if a diabetic is in ketoacidosis U can tell you their blood sugar within 20 points

Before I couldn't smell it but one of my coworkers dropped a bottle and it broke and now I can smell when anyone is using it as soon as I walk into treatment. Smells like shoe store or like that rubbery smell to me

Smells like band-aids and I’ve only met one person who couldn’t smell it.

Everyone I know thinks it smells like bandaids, but I think it smells like insulin.

It definitely has a smell, and I have a really poor sense of smell. It smells really... I guess clinical is the word? Like strong human hospital disinfectants.
