Indications

Cattle: For the reduction of pain associated with surgery. For use in acute respiratory infection and diarrhoea in combination with appropriate antibiotic therapy to reduce clinical symptoms in calves and young cattle. For use in acute mastitis, in combination with antibiotic therapy, as appropriate, to reduce clinical symptoms in lactating cows. For use to assist in the control of pain following the dehorning of cattle particularly that following heat cautery dehorning of young cattle. It is recommended that the injection be administered approximately 10 minutes before dehorning and be accompanied by a cornual nerve block anaesthesia.

Sheep: For single dose use in sheep and lambs 14 days of age or older for the alleviation of pain and inflammation.

Pigs: For use in acute non-infectious locomotor disorders to reduce the symptoms of lameness and inflammation. For use in puerperal septicaemia and toxaemia (mastitis, metritis and agalactia syndrome) with appropriate antibiotic therapy to reduce clinical signs of inflammation, oppose the effects of endotoxins and hasten recovery.
