Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Not recommended for cats, dogs or horses.
Use with caution in animals with hepatic or renal involvement.
Concomitant vaccination is not recommended.
Do not combine with bactericidal antimicrobial products or with infusion fluids.
Oxytetracycline may interfere with the action of bactericidal antimicrobials, such as penicillins and cephalosporins, and therefore they should not be used simultaneously.
Local reactions at the injection site may occur.
In very rare cases, hypersensitivity, allergic or anaphylactic type reactions may occur. In case of a serious anaphylactic reaction the administration of appropriate treatment (epinephrine, adrenaline, steroids, antihistamines, Ca) is recommended.
Bacterial resistance may exist or develop after prolonged use of tetracyclines.
The use of tetracyclines during the period of tooth development, including late pregnancy, may lead to tooth discolouration.
Do not dilute.
If concurrent treatment is administered use a separate injection site.
Resistance against oxytetracycline may vary.
Use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing of bacteria isolated from the animal. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on local (regional, farm level) epidemiological information about susceptibility of the target bacteria. Inappropriate use of the product may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to oxytetracycline and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with tetracyclines due to the potential for cross resistance.

Milk: Cattle: Milk for human consumption must not be taken during treatment. Milk from cows may only be taken for human consumption after 7 days from the last treatment.
