Is there any further advice I should know about Selgian?
Owing to its IMAO properties, (-) selegiline hydrochloride may act on prolactin secretion. In the absence of specific studies, it is recommended that Selgian® should not be administered to pregnant and lactating bitches.
Selgian® should not be administered from the day before until the day after anaesthesia or tranquillisation performed with an alpha-2 agonist.
Do not administer with other alpha-2 agonists.
Selgian® should not be administered concomitantly with pethidine, fluoxetine or phenothiazines. The narcotic action of morphine is potentiated by Selgian®.
Trials have shown that some dominant dogs, with behavioural disorders but no signs of aggression, may become aggressive after treatment. Those previously showing aggression may have this enhanced. Appropriate training is essential in such cases.
Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay
It is recommended to stop the treatment during pregnancy and lactation.
Special precautions for use in animals
Emotional disorders can mask hierarchical conflicts. In dominant dogs suffering from an emotional disorder, the alleviation of the disorder can sometimes reveal a latent aggressiveness. In such cases, behavioural therapy must be instituted.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the medicinal product to animals
In the event of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice and show the doctor the package leaflet. Wash hands after use.
If no clinical improvement is observed after 2 months, continuing the treatment is unlikely to provide any further benefit. It is advisable to weigh animals before dosing to ensure the correct mg/kg dosage is administered.
Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal product should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
For animal treatment only.
