Adverse Reactions:

  • In dogs and cats: Typical adverse reactions of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, occult blood in stools, lethargy, and renal failure, are sometimes reported. In sporadic cases increased liver enzymes are reported. In dogs, in sporadic cases, there are reports of hemorrhagic diarrhoea, hematemesis, and gastrointestinal ulceration. In dogs, these side effects usually occur during the first week of treatment and, in most cases, are transient and disappear after the end of treatment, but in very rare cases, they can be severe or fatal. Infrequent anaphylactoid reactions may occur, which should be treated symptomatically.
  • In cattle and swine: Subcutaneous, intramuscular, and intravenous administration are well tolerated; in less than 10% of the cattle treated in clinical studies, mild, temporary swelling at the injection site was observed after subcutaneous administration. In very rare cases, anaphylactic reactions may occur, which can be severe (including fatal) and should be treated symptomatically. In the case of adverse reactions, treatment should be discontinued and veterinary advice sought. If you notice any serious or other effects resulting from using this VMP that are not described in this leaflet, please immediately inform your veterinary doctor.
