Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
Lesions (erosion/ulceration) of the oral mucosa and of the skin around the mouth were very commonly observed in treated animals during tolerance studies. These lesions were mild and resolved without treatment. Salivation and labial and tongue oedema have been uncommonly associated with the oral lesions in a field study.
The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
•very common (more than 1 in 10 animals treated displaying adverse reaction(s))
•common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals treated)
•uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals treated)
•rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals treated)
•very rare (less than 1 animals in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports treated)

The safety of the veterinary medicinal product for us in breeding, pregnant or lactating horses has not been established.
