|Precautions||Antimicrobial drugs, including penicillins and cephalosporins, can cause allergic reactions in sensitised individuals. To minimise the possibility of such a reaction, users of such antimicrobial products should avoid direct contact of the product with the skin and mucous membranes. The use of these products may result in some signs of immediate and transient local pain at the injection site. Any variation by the prescribing veterinarian to the approved dose, frequency, duration, route, disease or target species may require extending the approved withholding period. Avoid carcass damage. Reduce the incidence of abscesses and other reactions caused by injection; such reactions may be responsible for condemnation or downgrading of carcasses at slaughter. Although a number of these blemishes may be regarded as an inevitable consequence of mass injection programs, careful siting of injections will minimise their importance.The approved injection equipment should be cleaned and sterilised after use and stored following the supplied instructions of the manufacturer. Maintain cleanliness at all times. Needles should be kept sharp and clean. Replace frequently. Use the standard gauge needles supplied to fit the approved injection equipment. As far as possible, avoid injection during wet weather, or in very dusty yards, or on excessively soiled animals. Any injectable which becomes contaminated during use should be discarded.The product should be reconstituted in the vial supplied. During the reconstitution procedure care must be taken to prevent needle stick injury.Disposal Dispose of empty containers, outer packaging or expired product by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage. Discarded needles should immediately be placed in a designated and appropriately labelled sharps container. The container should be of a type to reduce the possibility of injury to handlers during collection and disposal. Incineration is the preferred method of disposal, otherwise sharps should be buried at a suitable site, such as in a farm chemical disposal pit located away from watercourses.|
