|Drug Name and Strength||Tolfenamic acid 40 mg/mL|
|Indication||Aid in the treatment of pneumonia and acute mastitis in cattle and metritis-mastitis-agalactia in pigs.|
|Contraindications||Do not inject cattle other than into muscle tissues high on the side of the neck. Injection of product into muscles other than as described is likely to result in residues in meat above the maximum residue limit (MRL).|
|Actions||Tolfenamic acid (n-(2-methyl-3-chlorophenyl) anthranilic acid) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) belonging to the fenamate group. Tolfenamic acid exerts anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activities. The anti-inflammatory activity of tolfenamic acid is mainly due to an inhibition of cyclooxygenase and thus to a reduction of the synthesis of prostaglandins and thromboxanes, which are important inflammatory mediators.|

The prescribing veterinarian would need to advise on an extended withholding period. Safe use of Ilium Tolfejec Injection during pregnancy has not been established.|
