Special precautions for use
i) Special precautions for use in animals
Oclacitinib modulates the immune system and may increase susceptibility to infection and exacerbate neoplastic conditions. Dogs receiving Skylocalm tablets should therefore be monitored for the development of infections and neoplasia.
When treating pruritus associated with allergic dermatitis with oclacitinib, investigate and treat any underlying causes (e.g. flea allergic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, food hypersensitivity). Furthermore, in cases of allergic dermatitis and atopic dermatitis, it is recommended to investigate and treat complicating factors, such as bacterial, fungal or parasitic infections/infestations (e.g. flea and mange).
Given the potential for effects on certain clinicopathological parameters (see section 4.6 of the SPC), periodic monitoring with complete blood counts and serum biochemistry is recommended when dogs are on long-term treatment.
ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
Wash hands after administration. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
