PDI_logo_vector-STREAM210-100ptRight to Know – Medical Guideline

Without regard to the method of delivery; the following 12 caution statements have been extrapolated verbatim from each “Medical Guide “of  commercially available products used to treat cattle.

 

Caution: Intramuscular or subcutaneous injection may result in local tissue reactions which persists beyond the slaughter withdrawal period.  This may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.  Intramuscular injection in the rump area may cause mild temporary lameness associated with swelling at the injection site.  Subcutaneous injection in the neck area may cause swelling at the injection site.


NOTE: Intramuscular injection may result in local tissue reaction which persists beyond 28 days. This may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Tissue reaction at injection sites other than the neck is likely to be more severe.


Subcutaneous injection can cause a transient local tissue reaction that may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.


An injection site study conduction in feeder calves demonstrated that the formulation may induce a transient reaction in the subcutaneous tissue and underlying muscle.


Subcutaneous injection can cause a transient local tissue reaction that may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.


Swelling and inflammation, which may be severe, may be seen at the injection site after administration. Subcutaneous injection may result in local tissue reactions which persist beyond the slaughter withdrawal period. This may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.


When administered according to the label directions, product may induce a transient local reaction in the subcutaneous and underlying muscle tissue.


Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin

The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injections, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.


“Intramuscular or subcutaneous injection may result in local tissue reactions which persists beyond the slaughter withdrawal period.  This may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.”


“Subcutaneous injection can cause a transient local tissue reaction that may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.”


“Subcutaneous injection may cause a transient local tissue reaction in some cattle that may result in trim loss of edible tissues at slaughter.”


Transitory discomfort has been observed in some cattle following subcutaneous administration. A low incidence of soft tissue swelling at the injection site has been observed. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. For cattle, divide doses greater than 10 mL between two injection sites to reduce occasional discomfort or site reaction.
