Contra-indications, warnings, etc

For animal treatment only.

Avoid intra-arterial injection.

As the effects of ketoprofen on fertility, pregnancy or foetal health in horses have not been determined, KETOFEN 10% should not be administered to pregnant mares. KETOFEN 10% may be given to pregnant and lactating cattle and is indicated for use in lactating sows.

Do not administer to horses, cattle or pigs that have previously shown a hypersensitivity to ketoprofen.

In case of accidental self injection seek medical advice. Wash hands after use.

Avoid splashes on the skin and eyes. Irrigate thoroughly with water should this occur. If irritation persists seek medical advice.

Do not administer other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) concurrently or within 24 hours of each other. Some NSAIDs may be highly bound to plasma proteins and compete with other highly bound drugs which can lead to toxic effects.

Do not exceed the stated dose or the duration of treatment. Use is contraindicated in animals suffering from cardiac, hepatic or renal disease, where there is the possibility of gastro-intestinal ulceration or bleeding, where there is evidence of a blood dyscrasia or hypersensitivity to the product. Use in any animal less than 6 weeks of age or in aged animals may involve additional risk. If such use can not be avoided, animals may require a reduced dosage and careful management.

Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive animal as there is a potential risk of increased renal toxicity.

Concurrent administration of nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.
