Special precautions for use

(i) Special precautions for use in animals

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.

Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive animals as there is a potential risk of increased renal toxicity.

Avoid intra-arterial injection.

Do not exceed the stated dose or duration of treatment.

(ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the medicinal product to the animals

People with known hypersensitivity to the active substance and/or benzyl alcohol should avoid contact with this product

In case of accidental self injection, seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or label to the physician.

Wash hands after use.

Avoid splashes on the skin and eyes. Wash affected area thoroughly with water should this occur. If irritation persists seek medical advice.

Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

In common with all NSAIDs, due to their action of inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, there can be the possibility in certain individuals of gastric or renal intolerance. Allergic reactions may occur very rarely.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

The safety of Ketoprofen has been investigated in pregnant laboratory animals (rats, mice and rabbits) and cattle. Ketoprofen showed no teratogenic or embryotoxic effects. Ketoprofen may be given to pregnant and lactating cattle. As the safety of ketoprofen has not been assessed in pregnant sows, the product should be used in these cases only accordingly to the benefit/risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian. Do not use in pregnant mares.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Do not administer with other non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) concurrently or within 24 hours of each other, corticosteroids, diuretics or anticoagulants.

Some NSAIDs may be highly bound to plasma proteins and compete with other highly bound drugs which can lead to toxic effects.

Concurrent administration with nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.

Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

No clinical signs were observed when ketoprofen was administered to horses at 5 times the recommended dose for 15 days, to cattle at 5 times the recommended dose for 5 days, or to pigs at 3 times the recommended dose for 3 days.
