In case of dermal contact, wash skin with soap and water. Consult a physician if irritation persists following ocular or dermal exposure.

If excessive accidental exposure occurs, avoid direct sunlight. Quinolones should be used with caution in pets with known or suspected central nervous system (CNS) disorders.
