4. Hazard Identification Health Effects:
Skin erythema and other hypersensitivity reactions may occur in pigs on rare occasions following treatment. If this occurs then discontinue use until the condition subsides, then resume use.
Moderately toxic. Tests on mice using pure Tiamulin hydrogen fumarate indicate moderate toxicity following a single dose
Moderately toxic. May cause skin irritation. Prolonged or repeated overexposure may cause sensitisation
Moderately toxic. May cause irritation of the respiratory tract. Prolonged or repeated overexposure may cause sensitisation.
Mild changes in the liver and reversible ECG changes were found after repeated high doses of Tiamulin fumarate to experimental animals.
May cause stomach distress, nausea or vomiting.
space Target organs:
Signs and symptoms:
Symptoms may include redness, oedema, drying, defatting and cracking of the skin. Symptoms of overexposure may be headache, dizziness, tiredness, nausea and vomiting.
