Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to fluoroquinolones or to any of the excipients.
Do not use in cases where the pathogen involved is resistant to other fluroquinolones (cross resistance).
Administration by the intramuscular route may cause rare transient local reactions such as pain and swelling at the injection site which may persist up to 7 days after injection. Fluroquinolones are known to induce arthropathies. In cattle, such lesions were observed after 3 days of treatment with the 16% Marbofloxacin solution. These lesions did not induce clinical signs and should be reversible, particularly if they were to be observed after a single administration.
No other adverse effect was observed in cattle.
If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this information sheet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.
