Do not use in animals showing hypersensitivity to flunixin meglumine.
Monitor drug compatibility closely when concurrent therapy is required.
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 clinical management.
Avoid use in hypovolaemic animals, except in the case of endotoxaemia or septic shock. It is preferable that NSAID's which inhibit prostaglandin synthesis are not administered to animals undergoing general anaesthesia until fully recovered. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are not permitted under the Rules of Racing and under rules governing other competitive events. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has given advice to the veterinary profession regarding the use of anti-inflammatory drugs in competing horses.
It states that "if a veterinarian recommends the discontinuation of any such drug not less than 8 days before racing, he should feel sure that he has catered for all but the most exceptional case!"
Do not use in animals suffering from cardiac, hepatic or renal disease where there is a possibility of gastro-intestinal ulceration or bleeding.
