Oxytobel 10 IU/ml Solution for Injection for Horses, Cattle, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Dogs and Cats 50ml.
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:
•Obstetric use (stimulation of uterine contraction to facilitate parturition in the presence of a fully dilated cervix, promotion of involution of the post partum uterus, aid in the control of post partum haemorrhage).
•Promotion of milk let-down
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.

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
