Animal medicine injection is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) injections. All or part of animals with a significant curative effect and little side reactions as raw materials as well as modern technology are used to produce traditional Chinese medicine injections with a reliable and rapid drug efficacy and high bioavailability. Due to the complex composition of traditional Chinese medicine injections,imperfect quality standards,and unreasonable clinical use,the incidence of adverse reactions of traditional Chinese medicine injections has been significantly higher than that of traditional Chinese medicine for oral use. Animal medicine injections contain rich protein and fat,and heteroproteins are the main sensitization source in animal medicine injections. At present,the adverse reactions of animal medicine injections are mainly manifested in the anaphylaxis-like reactions at skin,mucous membranes and organ systems. The adverse reactions that occur during the first medication are more common. Specific causes for allergiclike adverse reactions in animal injections and related substances in traditional Chinese medicine injections made of animals that induce allergies or anaphylactoid reactions are currently not specifically reported. This article reviews the current adverse reactions of animal TCM injections,allergies and pseudoallergic reactions of animal TCM injections,the pharmacokinetics of animal TCM injections,and the combined use of drugs,in order to improve the quality standards of Chinese medicine injections for animals and provide reference for further safety related research.
