Do not use in animals known to be hypersensitive to apomorphine or any other excipients.
Do not exceed the recommended dosage. Emesis occurs rapidly (within 10 minutes). If emesis is not induced following a single injection, repeated injections will also prove ineffective and should not be given.
Use of the product is not recommended if the poison was ingested, or suspected to be ingested, more than 2 hours previously.

No data are available on use during pregnancy or lactation. Use only according to the benefit/risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
In the absence of compatibility studies, apomorphine must not be mixed with other veterinary medicinal products.
Operator warnings: Avoid accidental self-injection. In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or label to the doctor.

Dopamine antagonists (e.g. phenothiazines) may negate the emetic effect of apomorphine.
Overdose may result in respiratory and/or cardiac depression, CNS stimulation or depression and protracted vomiting. Doses of 0.4 mg/kg - 1.6 mg/kg administered intravenously in dogs resulted in a short period of sedation followed by incessant running lasting from ½ to 1 hour from which the animals recovered. Naloxone may reverse the respiratory and CNS effects of the product but not the emetic effects.

hi my child eat one of my dog cephorum what will happen
You should talk to your doctor about this, although usually it would not cause any problems unless your child happens to be allergic to the antibiotic. Diarrhoea might be caused, and should be treated in the usual way.
