Do not use in pregnant or lactating bitches. Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Do not use in dogs suffering from cardiac hepatic or renal disease where there is a possibility of gastro-intestinal ulceration or bleeding or where there is evidence of a blood dyscrasia or hypersensitivity to the product. Do not use in puppies less than 4 months of age. Special precautions for use in animals Use in aged dogs may involve additional risk. If such a use cannot be avoided dogs may require careful clinical management. Avoid use in any dehydrated hypovolaemic or hypotensive dog as there is a potential risk of increased renal toxicity. Concurrent administration of potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided. NSAIDs can cause inhibition of phagocytosis and hence in the treatment of inflammatory conditions associated with bacterial infection appropriate concurrent antimicrobial therapy should be instigated. Do not administer other NSAIDs concurrently or within 24 hours. Some NSAIDs may be highly bound to plasma proteins and compete with other highly bound drugs which can lead to toxic effects. Response to long-term treatment should be monitored at regular intervals by a veterinary surgeon.
