Special warnings

Special precautions for use in animals:
Pathogen sensitivity to oxytetracycline might be varied. Therefore, use of the product should be based on tests of drug resistance of microorganisms isolated in the given case. If this is impossible, the treatment should be performed on the basis of available local epidemiological information, including official regulations and guidelines.

Improper use of the product might lead to an increased number of oxytetracycline-resistant bacteria and to reduced efficiency of treatment using other tetracyclines as a result of cross-resistance.

In the case of conditions with concomitant impairment of renal functions, the half-life of oxytetracycline is significantly longer and, in the case of multiple administrations, it may accumulate in the body.

If repeated administration of the drug is required, it should not be injected in the area of the body used for the previous injection.


Special precautions for persons administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals:
People with diagnosed hypersensitivity to tetracyclines should avoid contact with the product. During the use of the veterinary medicinal product, caution should be taken to avoid accidental self-injection and contact with skin and mucosa.

In the case of accidental self-injection, immediately seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or the package to the physician.

If the product comes into contact with an eye, wash the eye with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

If, as a result of the contact with the product, such symptoms as a rash occur, you should seek immediate medical advice and show the package leaflet or the leaflet to the physician. Swelling of the face, lips or eyes as well as breathing difficulties require immediate medical help.
