Precautions:

Stop medication at the first sign of gastrointestinal upset, jaundice or blood dyscrasia. Authenticated cases of agranulocytosis associated with the drug have occurred in man; fatal reactions, although rare, have been reported in dogs after long-term therapy. To guard against this possibility, conduct routine blood counts at weekly intervals during the early phase of therapy and at intervals of two weeks thereafter. Any significant fall in the total white blood cell count, relative decrease in granulocytes, or black or tarry stools should be regarded as a signal for immediate cessation of therapy and institution of appropriate counter-measures.In the treatment of inflammatory conditions associated with infections, specific anti-infective therapy is required.

Warning:

Not for use in horses intended for food.

Storage:

Store Phenylbutazone Tablets at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Phenylbutazone injectable solution must be kept in the refrigerator at all times. To ensure proper temperature, Phenylbutazone injectable solution requires overnight shipping at an additional cost.
