Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in pregnant or lactating mares.
Do not use in horses suffering from gastrointestinal disorders such as irritation and haemorrhage, impaired hepatic, cardiac or renal function and haemorrhagic disorders.
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Do not use in horses less than 6 weeks of age.
Special precautions for use in animals
Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive animals, as there is a potential risk of renal toxicity.
Diarrhoea, typically associated with NSAIDs, was very rarely observed in clinical trials. The clinical sign was reversible.
Loss of appetite, lethargy, abdominal pain, colitis and urticaria have been reported very rarely from post-marketing safety experience.
Anaphylactoid reactions, which may be serious (including fatal), have been observed very rarely from post-marketing safety experience and should be treated symptomatically.
If adverse reactions occur, treatment should be discontinued and the advice of a veterinarian should be sought.
The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
- very common (more than 1 in 10 animals treated displaying adverse reactions)
- common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals treated)
- uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals treated)
- rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals treated)
- very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals treated, including isolated reports).
Laboratory studies in cattle have not provided any evidence for teratogenic, foetotoxic, or maternotoxic effects. However, no data have been generated in horses. Therefore the use in this species is not recommended during pregnancy and lactation.
Do not administer concurrently with glucocorticosteroids, other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or with anti-coagulant agents.
In the case of overdose symptomatic treatment should be initiated.
Withdrawal period
Meat and offal: 3 days.
