Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Special Precautions for use in Animals

Official and local antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used. Fluoroquinolones should be reserved for the treatment of clinical conditions which have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly, to other classes of antimicrobials. Wherever possible, fluoroquinolones should only be used based on susceptibility testing. Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in the SPC may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to the fluoroquinolones and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other quinolones due to the potential for cross resistance.

No severe side-effects are to be expected at doses up to 5 times the recommended dose in cattle and pigs. In particular no lesions of the articular joints are encountered.

Subcutaneous injection is well tolerated. Transitory inflammatory reactions are sometimes observed at the injection site, but without clinical impact.

Overdosage may cause acute signs in the form of neurological disorders which should be treated symptomatically.

Operator Warning

People with known hypersensitivity to fluoroquinolones should avoid using this product. Wash hands after use.

Withdrawal periods

Preruminating calves (up to 100kg bodyweight): 6 days

Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
