Target species:
Horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, dogs and cats.

Indications for use:
In the mare, cow, sow, ewe, goat, bitch and cat the product is indicated for:

•Promotion of milk let-down

Contra-indications:
Do not use in any form of obstructive dystocia

Special warnings for each target species:
Adrenaline at physiological levels markedly reduces the effect of Oxytocin on the uterus or mammary gland. For this reason the animal should not be frightened when complete Oxytocin effect is desired to cause either milk "let-down" or uterine contractions.

Special precautions for use:
(i) Special precautions for use in animals

When Oxytobel 10 IU/ml is used as an aid in parturition cervical dilation must be confirmed prior to administration to prevent risk of foetal death and possible uterine rupture.

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

Pregnant or lactating women should avoid handling the product as it could cause smooth muscle (e.g. uterine) contraction.

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