Special precautions for use in animals
Official and local antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.
Fluoroquinolones should be reserved for the treatment of clinical conditions which have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly, to other classes of antimicrobials.
Whenever possible, fluoroquinolones should only be used 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.
The efficacy data showed that the product has insufficient efficacy for the treatment of acute forms of mastitis induced by gram-positive bacteria.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
Wash hands after use.
People with known hypersensitivity to (fluoro)quinolones should avoid contact with the product.
In case of contact with skin or eyes, rinse with plenty of water. Care should be taken to avoid accidental self-injection. In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice and show the label to the doctor. Accidental self-injection can induce a slight irritation.
