Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to marbofloxacin or other quinolones.
Do not use in case of confirmed or suspected resistance to fluoroquinolones (cross resistance).

Special precautions for use in animals

Use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing and has to take into account official and local antimicrobial policies. It is prudent to reserve the fluoroquinolones for the treatment of clinical conditions that have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly, to other classes of antibiotics. Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in the SPC may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to the fluoroquinolones and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other quinolones due to the potential for cross resistance. As the vial cannot be broached more than 45 times, the user should choose the most appropriate vial size according to the target species to treat.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

People with known hypersensitivity to (fluoro)quinolones should avoid any contact with the product. If the product comes into contact with the skin or eyes, rinse with copious amounts of water. Take care to avoid accidental self-injection since it can induce a slight irritation. In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet to the physician. Wash hands after use.
