FDA Warning: Sileo Overdose

Post by centrop67 » Mon Jul 02, 2018 11:44 am

Sileo is described as a noise aversion drug.
U.S. Food and Drug Administration wrote:From May 2016, when Zoetis began marketing Sileo, to May 16, 2018, the FDA has received a total of 54 adverse event reports involving Sileo overdoses in dogs due to the ring-stop mechanism not properly locking at the intended dose. In the year since the FDA published its original Animal Drug Safety Communication on this issue, the agency has received 26 additional reports of accidental Sileo overdoses in dogs.

Zoetis has also provided enhanced training videos on its website to help veterinarians teach owners and handlers how to properly handle and administer Sileo.
