Prevention of new intramammary infections throughout the dry period. In cows considered likely to be free of sub-clinical mastitis, the product can be used on its own in dry cow management and mastitis control.
Cattle (Dairy cow at drying-off)
For intramammary use only
The product has a dual tip nozzle. The cap of the syringe can be partially or fully removed. It is recommended to pinch the teat at the teat base as it aids in positioning the paste in the teat cistern, sealing the teat canal from the top.
Short tip option: The short tip option allows for a partial insertion technique so that the syringe only needs to be inserted in the teat end.
Long tip option: The long tip option may be used for treatment convenience for example to prevent the tip from flipping out due to a moving or nervous cow.
Infuse the content of one syringe of the product into each udder quarter immediately after the last milking of the lactation (at drying off). Do not massage the teat or udder after infusion of the product because it is important that the sealant stays in the teat itself and does not enter the udder.
Care must be taken not to introduce pathogens into the teat in order to reduce the risk of post-infusion mastitis.
It is essential that the teat is thoroughly cleaned with the alcoholic disinfectant wipes provided. The teats should be wiped until there is no visible dirt collected on the wipe. Teats should be allowed to dry prior to infusion. Infuse aseptically and take care to avoid contamination of the syringe nozzle. Following infusion, it is advisable to use an appropriate teat dip or spray. Under cold conditions the product may be warmed to room temperature in a warm environment, to aid syringeability.
