What are the side effects of Phenylbute Powder, 2.2 lbs?
Stop medication at the first sign of gastrointestinal upset, jaundice, or blood dyscrasia. Authenticated cases of agranulocytosis associated with the drug have occurred in man; fatal reactions, although rare, have been reported in dogs after long-term therapy. To guard against this possibility, conduct routine blood counts at weekly intervals during the early phase of therapy and at intervals of two weeks thereafter. Any significant fall in the total white count, relative decrease in granulocytes, or black or tarry stools, should be regarded as a signal for immediate cessation of therapy and institution of appropriate countermeasures.
What special precautions are there?
For Horses Only. Keep away from children. Phenylbutazone should not be administered to animals with serious heptic, renal or cardiac pathology, or those with a history of blood dyscrasia. Concomitant use with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as NSAIDs or corticosteroids, should be avoided or closely monitored.
