Special precautions for use in animals
Official, national and regional antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.
It is recommended that use of the product should be based on bacteriological sampling and susceptibility testing. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on epidemiological information about susceptibility of the target bacteria. Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in the SPC may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to fusidic acid.
Use of the product in association with occlusive bandages or dressings should be avoided.
Betamethasone valerate can be absorbed percutaneously and may cause temporary suppression of adrenal function.
In dogs with treated or stabilised Cushing's syndrome, only use the product after careful consideration of the benefit risk balance by the responsible veterinary surgeon.
Avoid eye contact.
The dog should be prevented from licking treated lesions and so ingesting the product.
Where there is a risk of self-trauma or a risk of accidental transfer to the eye, for example, application of the product on the forelimb, preventative measures such as the use of a protective collar should be considered.
