Cattle: - For the treatment of bacterial respiratory disease associated with Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida and Haemophilus somnus. - For the treatment of acute interdigital necrobacillosis (panaritium, foot rot) associated with Fusobacterium necrophorum and Bacteroides melaninogenicus (Phorphyromonas asaccharolytica). - For the treatment of the bacterial component of acute post-partum (puerperal) metritis within 10 days after calving associated with Escherichia coli, Arcanobacterium pyogenes and Fusobacterium necrophorum. Contra-indications, Warnings, etc. Do not administer to an animal previously found to be hypersensitive to ceftiofur and other _-lactam antibiotics. Do not inject intravenously Special precautions for use i) Special precautions for use in animals Shake the bottle well before use to bring the product back into suspension. In case of the occurrence of allergic reaction the treatment should be withdrawn. Inappropriate use of the product may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to cephalosporins. Use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing and take into account official and local antimicrobial policies ii) Special precaution to be taken by the person administering the medicinal product to animals Penicillins and cephalosporins may cause hypersensitivity (allergy) following injection, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Hypersensitivity to penicillins may lead to cross reactions to cephalosporins and vice versa. Allergic reactions to these substances may occasionally be serious. People with known hypersensitivity to penicillins or cephalosporins should avoid contact with the product. In the case of accidental self-injection or following exposure, if you develop symptoms such as a skin rash, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician. Swelling of the face, lips or eyes or difficulty with breathing are more serious symptoms and require urgent medical attention. Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness) Hypersensitivity reactions unrelated to dose can occur. Allergic reactions

(e.g. skin reactions, anaphylaxia) may occasionally occur. In swine, mild reactions at the injection site, such as discoloration of the fascia or fat, have been observed in some animals for up to 20 days after injection. In cattle, mild inflammatory reactions at the injection site, such as tissue oedema and discoloration of the subcutaneous tissue and/or fascial surface of the muscle may be observed. Clinical resolution is reached in most animals by 10 days after injection although slight tissue discoloration may persist for 28 days or more. Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay Studies in laboratory species have not produced any evidence of teratogenic, foetotoxic or maternotoxic effects. Safety has not been established in the target species during pregnancy. Use only according to the benefit/risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
