    Tomorrow Dry Cow, Intramammary Infusion to Prevent Mastitis

    Posted on May 2, 2011, under Veterinary Drug

    Intramammary Infusion to Prevent MastitisDry cow therapy has traditionally been the use of intramammary antibiotic therapy immediately after the last milking of lactation. Approved products applied by intramammary infusion at drying off can decrease the number of existing intramammary infections and/or prevent new infections during the early weeks of the dry period. Tomorrow Dry Cow can do this. Contains 12 x 10mL syringes and 12 alcohol pads. Each syringe contains 300 mg cephapirin activity as cephapirin benzathine. For intramammary infusion into the dry cow. Product Details

    The early dry period comprises the first 4-5 weeks after drying off. During this period attention should be given to mastitis prevention, vitamin supplementation and body condition.

    There are several guidelines to follow when administering dry cow antibiotics to prevent mastitis bacteria from being accidentally introduced into the teat: Cows must be removed from the milking herd so that they do not experience the milk let-down stimuli; Cows should be dried-off abruptly when they are producing less than 15 litres; Clean towels must be used for wiping and drying; Clean disposable gloves should be worn and kept clean.

    Dry cow antibiotic treatment aims to prevent new udder infections in the early dry period and can eliminate sub-clinical infections persisting from the previous lactation. Generally, the choice of product should be based on vet advice as well as any prior knowledge of the antibiotic sensitivity patterns for known mastitis agents in the herd. All quarters should be treated, not just those having shown symptoms of mastitis.

    Use of dry cow treatment is one component of an effective mastitis control program that should also include: dipping teats immediately after milking with a product known to be safe and effective, proper milking procedures using properly functioning milking equipment, keeping accurate records of clinical mastitis and somatic cell counts on individual cows, good udder hygiene between milkings, culling cows with chronic mastitis, and treating all clinical cases of mastitis promptly and appropriately.

    Before administration of the antibiotic, Teats should be dipped in an effective germicidal teat pre-dip and the appropriate contact time allowed before wiping off; Teats should be washed and must be thoroughly dried; The dry cow antibiotic should be infused into the nearest teat first, then into those furthest away to prevent contamination of clean teat ends; The teats should be swabbed with surgical spirit, starting with the furthest away and working towards the closest teat.
