In bovine practice, if a drug is used in an extralabel manner, the withdrawal interval must be sufficient to ensure that there will be no residues in meat or milk products. Importantly, NSAIDs are considered to be of high regulatory importance because of the potential for harm to humans consuming products contaminated with their residues. In the United States, flunixin meglumine is the only NSAID for which a tolerance concentration has been established.
