Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Seek veterinary advice regarding use of appropriately sized needles and syringes when dosing small animals. An appropriately graduated syringe must be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. This is particularly important when injecting small volumes, e.g. piglets less than 2 kg body weight.
When dosing a large number of animals from a single bottle, the use of an aspirating needle is recommended to avoid excessive broaching of the stopper.
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.
Whenever 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.
