CAUTIONS: In case of anaphylactic reaction (acute respiratory distress, mouth breathing, recumbency), administer epinephrine immediately to prevent death.

In pigs, administration of this product may occasionally cause a fever, vomiting, shivering, listlessness, incoordination and possibly, death. In pregnant sows and gilts, it may result in abortions.
