Special precautions for use in animals
Official and local antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when this product is used.

Wherever possible, use of the product should only be 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.
