Use with caution in dehydrated or hypotensive animals.

Other NSAIDs should not be used concomitantly or within 24 hours from administration of the product. Competition at plasma protein binding sites may lead to intoxication. Concurrent administration with diuretics, anticoagulant therapy and nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.

Repeated intramuscular injections may cause mild transient irritation. Due to the mechanism of action of ketoprofen (inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis), gastric and intestinal irritation or ulceration or renal intolerance may occur.

Avoid intra-arterial injections.

Do not exceed the recommended dose or duration of treatment.

The use of ketoprofen is not recommended in foals under the age of 15 days. Use in any animal less than 6 weeks of age or in aged animals may involve additional risk. If such use cannot be avoided, animals may require a reduced dosage and careful management.

The safety of ketoprofen has been investigated in pregnant laboratory animals (rats, mice, rabbits) and cattle. No adverse effects were noted.
