Great question Sara and great points Simon.

There are a couple of studies in dogs where both drugs are used. Problem is that most involve maropitant being given and then around an hour later the apomorphine is given:

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19000276/

I think the main point is due to the timing of the drug administration and how long to peak effect. If we are giving the maropitant SC after the apomorphine, it is probably starting to work after the emetic effect of the apomorphine has passed. I think it probably has little effect.

Makes us feel better for sure.
