ToMorrow Dry Cow Mastitis Treatment
In the non-lactating mammary gland, ToMorrow provides bactericidal levels of the active antibiotic, cephapirin, for a prolonged period of time. This prolonged activity is due to the low solubility of the cephapirin benzathine and to the slow-release gel base. Cephapirin is bactericidal to susceptible organisms; it is known to be highly active against streptococcus agalactiae and staphylococcus aureus including strains resistant to penicillin.
Dry-cow mastitis treatment is a well-established management practice, intended to cure existing IMI acquired during lactation and to prevent new IMI in the dry period. ToMorrow has been shown by extensive clinical studies to be efficacious in the treatment of mastitis in dry cows, when caused by Streptococcus agalactiae and staphylococcus aureus including penicillin-resistant strains.Treatment of the dry cow with ToMorrow is indicated in any cow known to harbor any of these organisms in the udder at drying off.
Each 10 mL disposable syringe contains 300 mg of cephapirin (equivalent to 300 mg cephapirin benzathine) in a stable peanut oil gel.
How to Use
ToMorrow is for use in dry cows only. Infuse each quarter at the time of drying off with a single 10 mL syringe. Use no later than 30 days prior to calving.
Completely milk out all four quarters. The udder and teats should be thoroughly washed with warm water containing a suitable dairy antiseptic and dried, preferably
using individual paper towels. Carefully scrub the teat end and orifice with 70% alcohol, using a separate swab for each teat. Allow to dry.
For Partial Insertion: Twist off upper portion of the OPTI-SERT protective cap to expose 3–4 mm of the syringe tip.
For Full Insertion: Remove protective cap to expose the full length of the syringe tip.
Insert syringe tip into the teat canal and expel the entire contents of syringe into the quarter. Withdraw the syringe and gently massage the quarter to distribute gel.
Store at or below 77°F (25°C). Do not freeze. Avoid excessive heat.
