Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for 15 minutes. In case of dermal contact, wash skin with soap and water. Consult a physician if irritation persists following ocular or dermal exposure.

Orbifloxacin and other quinolones have been shown to cause arthropathy in immature animals of most species tested, the dog being particularly sensitive to this side effect. Orbifloxacin is contraindicated in immature dogs during the rapid growth phase between 2 and 8 months of age in small and medium-sized breeds, and up to 18 months of age in large and giant breeds. Orbifloxacin is contraindicated in dogs known to be hypersensitive to quinolones. HUMAN
