Caution should be exercised with the use of Onsior in cats with impaired function of the heart, kidney or liver, or that are dehydrated, have low circulating blood volume or low blood pressure. If use cannot be avoided, these cats require careful monitoring.Use Onsior under strict veterinary monitoring in cats at risk of gastrointestinal ulceration or if the cat has previously displayed intolerance to other NSAIDs. Onsior should not be given to animals where blood loss or decrease in blood pressure during surgery may decrease renal or gastrointestinal perfusion.
