A target animal safety study was conducted to evaluate the effects of NUFLOR GOLD® when administered to feeder cattle by subcutaneous injection at 1X, 3X, or 5X the labeled dose for three consecutive days (3X the labeled duration). Decreased feed consumption (inappetence), decreased water consumption, and injection site swelling were observed in the 1X, 3X, and 5X groups.
A separate injection site study conducted in cattle demonstrated that NUFLOR GOLD® may induce a transient local reaction in the subcutaneous tissue and underlying muscle tissue.
