ZydaClin Tablets are contraindicated in animals with a history of hypersensitivity to preparations containing clindamycin or lincomycin. Because of potential adverse gastrointestinal effects, do not administer to rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, chinchillas or ruminating animals.
WARNINGS: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use.
During prolonged therapy of one month or greater, periodic liver and kidney function tests and blood counts should be performed.
The use of clindamycin hydrochloride occasionally results in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms such as clostridia and yeasts. Therefore, the administration of ZydaClin Tablets should be avoided in those species sensitive to the gastrointestinal effects of clindamycin (see CONTRAINDICATIONS).
Should superinfections occur, appropriate measures should be taken as indicated by the clinical situation.
Patients with very severe renal disease and/or very severe hepatic disease accompanied by severe metabolic aberrations should be dosed with caution, and serum clindamycin levels monitored during high-dose therapy.
Clindamycin hydrochloride has been shown to have neuromuscular blocking properties that may enhance the action of other neuromuscular blocking agents. Therefore, ZydaClin Tablets should be used with caution in animals receiving such agents.
Safety in gestating bitches or breeding male dogs has not been established.
