Possible Side Effects
Typical undesirable effects associated with NSAIDs such as vomiting, soft faeces/diarrhoea, faecal occult blood, loss of appetite and lethargy have been reported. These adverse reactions occur generally within the first treatment week and are in most cases transient and disappear following termination of the treatment but in very rare cases may be serious or fatal.
As with other NSAIDs there is a risk of rare renal or idiosyncratic hepatic adverse events.
Drug & Food Interactions
Do not administer other NSAIDs and glucocorticoids 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.
Concurrent administration of potential nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.
Do not use in cats.
Do not use in pregnant or lactating bitches.
Do not use in puppies less than 4 months of age.
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipents.
