Special Warnings & Special Precautions
Special precautions for use in animals
– Avoid use in dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive animals as there is a potential risk of increased renal toxicity.
– Co-administration with potentially nephrotoxic agents should be avoided.
– The prescribed dose and duration of treatment should not be exceeded.
– Do not administer other NSAIDs at the same time or within 24 hours of each other.
