Oxycare tablets are for the treatment of dogs with bacterial infections sensitive to tetracycline therapy only. Soft tissue infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus spp. have been shown to be highly sensitive. Respiratory infections caused by Bordetella bronchiseptica are also commonly sensitive.
Contraindicated for use in animals with hypersensitivity to any tetracycline.
Special precautions for use in animals:
Oxytetracycline is deposited in growing teeth and bones and may cause yellow discolouration. It also crosses the placenta. For this reason it is not recommended in late pregnancy or in young animals. Caution must be taken in treating animals with renal or hepatic dysfunction; in such cases it may be necessary to reduce dosage levels.
Special precautions for the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals:
If you know you are hypersensitive (allergic) to oxytetracycline, do not handle the product.
In the event of accidental ingestion, flush mouth with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
In the event of eye contact, flush thoroughly with clean, running water. If irritation persists seek medical attention.
Wash hands after use.
Oxytetracycline crosses the placenta. The product should not be used in late pregnancy.
Each tablet contains:
Oxytetracyline dihydrate as the active substance.
