    Additional user safety

    Take care to avoid accidental self-injection. In the event of self-administration, seek prompt medical attention and take this package leaflet/carton with you. If possible the application of gentle squeezing pressure with absorbent material (e.g. facial tissues) at the injection site will swab up unabsorbed vaccine. Strong squeezing of the site should be avoided. The damaged area should be thoroughly cleansed and a topical antiseptic applied.

    Accidental self-administration may result in local bruising, severe pain and swelling, particularly if injected into a joint or finger, and in rare cases could result in the loss of the affected finger if prompt medical attention is not given. If pain persists for more than 12 hours after medical examination, seek medical advice again.

    First Aid Statement

    If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131126.

    This material may cause a mild allergic reaction in sensitive individuals on skin contact. Avoid skin contact. If skin or hair contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and flush skin and hair with running water. If splashed in eyes, wash out immediately with water.

    Side Effects

    Some animals may show transient post-vaccination reactions including pain, malaise, lethargy, inappetence, transient fever, depression and/or stiffness. These reactions usually disappear within 24-48 hours. Allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis occur rarely and may require parenteral treatment with an antihistamine, a corticosteroid or adrenalin as appropriate. Local site reactions after vaccination are rare but transient swelling, pain and subcutaneous thickening may occur.

    Based on overseas challenge data, it has been demonstrated that clinical signs of feline calicivirus infection (pyrexia, ulcers) are likely to occur in vaccinated animals following exposure to this virus. However the severity of the fever and ulcers is likely to be reduced compared to unvaccinated animals.

    Precautions

    Vaccinate only healthy cats or kittens with normal temperatures. Animals under treatment with immunosuppressive drugs should be vaccinated with caution. Studies to support the use of the product in pregnant queens have not been conducted.
