Vitamin K1 tablets for dogs contain Phytomenadione and are used for the treatment of anticoagulant poisoning, following parenteral treatment, in dogs.

  • Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
  • Adverse reactions: Very rarely, vomiting and skin disorders, as erythema and dermatitis, or allergic edema have been reported.

The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:

  • very common (more than 1 in 10 animals treated displaying adverse reaction(s))
  • common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals treated)
  • uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals treated)
  • rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals treated)
  • very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals treated, including isolated reports).
Special warnings: As the anticoagulant effects of rodenticides are known to be long lasting it is recommended to administer vitamin K1 with an oral formulation for 3 weeks. The coagulation status (via one stage prothrombin times) has to be evaluated 48 hours after the last administration. If it is prolonged, the treatment is maintained until the clotting time is normal 48 hours after cessation of treatment to avoid relapse. The duration of treatment can be extended as long as the anticoagulant persists in the body.

The formation of prothrombin may be inadequate when dealing with patients with severe liver dysfunction. Therefore, in these animals, careful monitoring of coagulation parameters after administration of the product is required.

The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established in bitches during pregnancy and lactation. Studies conducted in laboratory animals have shown no teratogenic or foetotoxic effects. Vitamin K1 crosses the placental barrier. Use only according to the benefit/risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.

User precautions: People with known hypersensitivity to phytomenadione should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product.
Wash hands after use.

To avoid accidental ingestion, particularly by a child, unused part-tablets should be returned to the open blister space and inserted back into the carton.
