Precautions
Distodin  can be given safely at recommended doses to young, weak and lactating animals. Distodin can also be given to pregnant animals at all stages of pregnancy.  Colour and composition of milk remain unchanged in lactating animals after treatment with Distodin.

At the recommended dose, there are practically no side efects except that some animals may show slight loss of appetite which is transitory.  In lactating animals slight milk drop for 1 to 2 days may occur but animals start showing increased production within a few days.  In cattle slight softening of feces may occur sometimes with normal doses and occasionally the animals may show increased frequency of defecation.

Compatibility  
Distodin  can be administered along with other treatments and vaccinations.
