FDA Approves Clevor (Ropinirole Ophthalmic Solution) to Induce Vomiting in Dogs
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine has approved Clevor (ropinirole ophthalmic solution) for inducing vomiting in dogs. Clevor is a dopamine agonist that is administered by drops in the dog’s eye.
Some examples of when a veterinarian may want to induce vomiting in dogs include when the dog has eaten something that may be poisonous or that can’t pass through the intestinal tract, and that can be safely vomited as determined by a veterinarian. Clevor is available by prescription only, as the drug should only be administered by veterinary personnel because professional expertise is required to ensure safe use of the drug, assess the animal patient for contraindications associated with the induction of vomiting, and monitor any possible adverse reactions.
