Manufacturer: Henry Schein® Animal Health

Vitamin K1 Supplement

FOR USE IN DOGS AND CATS

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

Recommended Use: K-Chews 25 (Vitamin K1 Chewable Tablets) is for use in dogs and cats as a supplement to counter hypoprothrombinemia induced by ingestion of coumarin-based compounds, common ingredients of commercial rodenticides. Administer orally at the rate of 2.5 - 5.0 mg/kg body weight (1 chewable tablet per each 22 pounds of body weight for lower dosage or 1 chewable tablet per each 11 pounds for higher dosage) daily as conditions require up to three weeks.

Each tablet, K-Chews 25 (Vitamin K1 Chewable Tablets), may be given orally to dogs and cats as a treat, or crumbled over their food. If crumbled over their food, consumption should be monitored.

Active Ingredients (per chewable tablet):

Phytonadione

50 mg

Inactive Ingredients

Cellulose, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Iron Oxide, Liver Powder, Magnesium Stearate, Silicone Dioxide, Stearic Acid, Sucrose and Whey.

Precaution(s): Temporary resistance to prothrombin-depressing anticoagulants may result, especially when larger doses of phytonadione are used. It is recommended that K-Chews 50 (Vitamin K1 Chewable Tablets) be used in follow-up therapy only after administration of K-Ject (or other Vitamin K1 Injection) and hospitalization is no longer required. An immediate coagulant effect should not be expected after administration of phytonadione when administered orally.

Phytonadione will not counteract the anticoagulant action of heparin. Failure to respond to Vitamin K1 may indicate that the condition being treated is inherently unresponsive to Vitamin K1.

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

Store at controlled room temperature; 15° C-30° C (59° F-86° F) and protect from light. Dispense in this container or another tight, light-resistant container.
