A PRODUCT FOR THE INTRAMAMMARY TREATMENT OF MASTITIS IN LACTATING DAIRY COWS
Treatment of mastitis caused by bacteria susceptible to a combination of amoxicillin and neomycin in dairy cows during lactation. Bacteria generally susceptible to amoxicillin and/or neomycin are bacteria of the genus Staphylococcus spp., including S. aureus, the genus Streptococcus spp. including S. agalactiae, S. dysgalactiae and S. uberis, and coliform bacteria, including E. coli.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
The contents of one syringe should be infused gently into each infected quarter via the teat canal immediately after milking, once daily for three consecutive days. A total of 3 doses is applied to each affected quarter. Doses are applied at 12-hour intervals.
Administer the product by intramammary infusion only, taking aseptic precautions. Apply to a clean, washed and thoroughly dried udder, as soon as possible after milking the treated quarter. Prior to application, disinfect the end of the teat using one of the disinfectant wipes provided (use a new wipe for each teat!).
Prior to application, hold the applicator with the cannula pointed upward and remove the cap from the cannula in this position. Immediately after opening, insert the cannula into the teat canal, press the plunger and dispense the entire contents of the applicator into the affected quarter. It is recommended the teat be massaged briefly, away from the tip of the teat towards the milk cistern, following application.
Each applicator is intended for single use only.
