                        Side Effects

                        In a small number of cases, there may be short-lived pain at the time of injection or slight transient (1-2 weeks) swelling at the site of injection.

                        Allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis (facial and aural swelling, urticaria, vomiting) occur rarely and may require parenteral treatment with an antihistamine, a corticosteroid or adrenalin as appropriate.

                        Precautions

                        Proheart SR-12 Injection may be administered to dogs treated with Revolution (selamectin). A safety study showed that administration of Proheart SR-12 Injection to 12 week old puppies treated with Revolution was safe. However, the safety of concurrent treatment with Revolution and Proheart SR-12 Injection has not been demonstrated in macrocyclic lactone sensitive breeds e.g. sensitive collies.

                        Additional Information

                        Do not inject suspended product intravenously.

                        Use aseptic technique at all times.
