Atravet 10 mg Injectable Cautions
In horses, paralysis of the retractor penis muscle has been associated with the use of phenothiazine-derivative tranquilizers. This risk should be duly considered prior to the administration of acepromazine maleate to male horses (castrated and uncastrated). Use lower doses and use with caution when administering to animals with hepatic dysfunction, cardiac disease or general debilitation, due to possible prolongation of effect.
Keep out of reach of children. Treated animals must not be slaughtered for use in food for at least 7 days after the latest treatment with this drug. Milk taken from treated animals during treatment and within 48 hours after the latest treatment must not be used as food. Do not use in horses that are to be slaughtered for use in food.
