Possible Side Effects
The most common side effects in cats include vomiting and other minor gastrointestinal disturbances, although rarely. Veraflox must not be used in animals that may be allergic to fluoroquinolone antibiotics as an allergic reaction may occur. Please consult prescribing information for full list of possible side effects.
Drug & Food Interactions
Compounds (e.g., sucralfate, antacids and multivitamins) containing divalent and trivalent cations (e.g., iron, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, and zinc) may substantially interfere with the absorption of quinolones resulting in a decrease in product bioavailability. Therefore, the concomitant oral administration of quinolones with foods, supplements, or other preparations containing these compounds should be avoided. The dosage of theophylline should be reduced when used concurrently with quinolones. Cimetidine has been shown to interfere with the metabolism of quinolones and should be used with care when used concurrently. Concurrent use of quinolones with oral cyclosporine should be avoided. Concurrent administration of quinolones may increase the action of oral anticoagulants.
Prescribing antibacterial drugs in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection is
unlikely to provide benefit to treated animals and may increase the risk of the development of drug resistant animal pathogens.
The use of fluoroquinolones in cats has been associated with the development of retinopathy and/or
blindness. Such products should be used with caution in cats.
Quinolones have been shown to produce erosions of cartilage of weight-bearing joints and other signs
of arthropathy in immature animals of various species.
The safety of pradofloxacin in immune-compromised cats (i.e., cats infected with feline leukemia virus
and/or feline immunodeficiency virus) has not been evaluated.
Quinolones should be used with caution in animals with known or suspected central nervous system
(CNS) disorders. In such animals, quinolones have, in rare instances, been associated with CNS
stimulation that may lead to convulsive seizures.
The safety of pradofloxacin in cats younger than 12 weeks of age has not been evaluated.
The safety of pradofloxacin in cats that are used for breeding or that are pregnant and/or lactating has
not been evaluated.
