Caution

Unfortunately, a major drawback to chloramphenicol is a rare but very serious health risk for humans who handle this drug.Chloramphenicol can cause permanent damage to the bone marrow in about 1 in 10,000 people. For these people, even skin contact can cause permanent damage. 

Because this “aplastic anemia” is not reversible, chloramphenicol should only be used when other suitable antibiotics are not available and with extreme caution. Gloves and masks should be worn when handling this drug. This drug should be used in a well-ventilated location. If your pet vomits or has an accident indoors, you should wear gloves while cleaning up the accident. Children and pregnant women should not come in contact with this drug.
