Ketoprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the propionic acid class.
The anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic effects of ketoprofen are attributed to the inhibition of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygense in the inflammatory process. Ketoprofen is rapidly and extensively absorbed via either intramuscular or intravenous injection.
For use in cattle for the anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic treatment of acute mastitis, mammary oedema, respiratory conditions, colic and musculoskeletal conditions
Cattle: Administer by intravenous or intramuscular injection, in the neck.
Dose 1 mL / 50 kg / day (3 mg/kg ketoprofen) for 1 to 3 days depending on the severity and duration of symptoms.
Meat: Cattle producing meat or offal for human consumption must not be sold for slaughter either during treatment or within 2 days of the last treatment.
Do not use concurrently with another non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. Do not administer where there is abundant haemorrhaging. Do not use in animals suffering from cardiac, hepatic or renal disease. Abomasal ulceration and perforation has been seen when used in calves at disbudding. Do not administer by the intra-arterial route.
