Special precautions for use in animals
Using penethamate hydriodide for the treatment of mastitis must be accompanied by hygienic measures to prevent reinfection.
Where local (regional, farm-level), epidemiological information indicate possible reduced susceptibility of the relevant strains of the bacterial species involved in mastitis, use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing on bacteria isolated from diseased animals.
The veterinary medicinal product is not effective against beta-lactamase producing organisms.
Official national and regional antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.
Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in the SPC may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to benzylpenicillin and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other beta-lactam antimicrobials due to the potential for cross-resistance.
Penicillins and cephalosporins may cause hypersensitivity (allergy) following injection, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Hypersensitivity to penicillins may lead to cross-reactions to cephalosporins and vice versa. Allergic reactions to these substances may occasionally be serious.
Do not handle this product if you know you are sensitised, or if you have been advised not to work with such preparations.
Handle this product with great care to avoid exposure.
Wear gloves when handling the veterinary medicinal product to avoid contact sensitization.
In case of accidental self-injection or if you develop symptoms following exposure such as a skin rash, you should seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or the label to the doctor
Swelling of the face, lips or eyes or difficulty with breathing are more serious symptoms and require urgent medical attention.
Wash hands after use.
Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
The symptoms of adverse reactions range from mild skin reactions such as urticaria and dermatitis to severe reactions such as anaphylactic shock with tremors, vomiting, salivation, gastrointestinal disorders and laryngeal oedema.
In some situations the treatment may lead to secondary infections due to overgrowth of non-target organisms.
