To ensure a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing. To facilitate accurate dosing, the 15 ml bottle of Veraflox oral suspension is supplied together with a 3 ml oral dosing syringe (graduation: 0.1 to 2 ml).

The duration of the treatment depends on the nature and severity of the infection and on the response to treatment. For most infections the following treatment courses will be sufficient:

Duration of treatment (days)

Wound infections and abscesses

7

Acute infections of the upper respiratory tract

5

The treatment should be reconsidered if no improvement of the clinical condition is observed within 3 days after starting the treatment.

In order to avoid cross-contamination, the same syringe should not be used for different animals. Thus, one syringe should only be used for one animal. After administration, the syringe should be cleaned with tap water and stored in the carton box together with the veterinary medicinal product.

Use during pregnancy and lactation

The safety of this veterinary medicinal product has not been established in queens during pregnancy and lactation.

Pregnancy: Do not use during pregnancy. Pradofloxacin induced eye malformations at foetal and maternal toxic dosages in rats.

Lactation: Do not use during lactation since there are no data on pradofloxacin in kittens aged less than 6 weeks. Fluoroquinolones are known to cross the placenta and to be distributed into milk.
