Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Do not use in animals with spastic respiratory or gastrointestinal disease.
Do not use in gestating animals unless it is desirable to induce parturition or the interruption of pregnancy.
As with parenteral administration of any substance, basic aseptic rules should be observed. The injection site must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in order to reduce the risk of infection with anaerobic bacteria.
Occurrence of anaerobic infection is likely if anaerobic bacteria penetrate the tissue of the injection site. This applies especially to intramuscular injection and in particular to cows. Typical local reactions due to anaerobic infection are swelling and crepitus at the injection site.
Do not use in animals being treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as the synthesis of endogenous prostaglandins is inhibited.
The activity of other oxytocic agents can be increased after the administration of cloprostenol.
Pigs: only use when the precise date of insemination is known. Administer on day 113 of gestation at the earliest. Administration of the product earlier may impair the viability and weight of the piglets.
