Enrodem 50 should be reserved for the treatment of clinical conditions which have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly to other classes of antimicrobials. Whenever possible, fluoroquinolones should be used based on susceptibility testing of the bacteria isolated from the animal. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on local (regional, farm level) epidemiological information about susceptibility of the target bacteria. Official and local policies regarding antimicrobials must be taken into account when using the product. Use of the product deviating from the instructions given by 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.
People with known hypersensitivity to any of the product ingredients should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product. To prevent any unpleasant effects, personal protective equipment consisting in gloves, eye-glasses and protective masks, should be worn when handling the product. In case of accidental ingestion or the occurrence of symptoms characterized by skin rash, seek medical advice. Serious symptoms such as face swelling, lips or eye lids, accompanied by breath difficulties, need immediate medical attention.
In lactating sows, the product should be administered with caution, after assessment of risk-benefit ratio, because it could lead to arthropathy in suckling piglets following consumption of milk with enrofloxacin.
Do not administer to pregnant sows.
Animals with severe kidney disease should receive lower doses.
