Special precautions for use in animals : The safety of the product in puppies, kittens and foals has not been established. The use of the product in these groups should be decided by the responsible veterinarian according to the risk-benefit analysis evaluation.

Due to its antitussive (cough suppressant) property, butorphanol may cause mucous accumulation in the respiratory tract. Therefore, in animals with respiratory diseases associated with increased mucous production, butorphanol should only be used after risk-benefit assessment by the responsible veterinarian. If respiratory depression occurs, naloxone can be used as an antidote.

The sedation effect can be noted in treated animals. The combination of Butorphanol and α2 adrenoceptor agonists should be used with caution in animals with cardiovascular disease. Anticholinergic drugs, eg. Like atropine, concurrent use should be considered.

Concomitant use of butorphanol and romifidine in a syringe should be avoided as increased bradycardia, heart block and ataxia may occur.

Therefore, in order to protect patients and people from injury, care should be taken in choosing a place for treatment when treating horses.

CAT:Cats should be weighed to ensure the correct dose has been calculated. An appropriately sized syringe (eg, insulin syringe or 1 ml gauge syringe) should be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. If re-administration is required, different injection sites should be selected.
