Do not use in dogs having seizure disorders, since enrofloxacin may cause CNS stimulation.

Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in 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.
