Bimeda are pleased to announce the launch of Multishield Dry Cow to the UK market.
The non-cephalosporin containing dry cow tube contains 100mg Neomycin Sulphate, 100mg Penethemate Hydriodide and 400mg Procaine Benzylpenicillin.
Bimeda Technical Vet Padraig Hyland commented; ‘Multishield DC is effective as a preventative and curative Dry Cow Tube and treats a wide variety of mastitis-causing bacteria. With its fast and slow-release penicillin, Multishield DC offers fast-acting yet prolonged activity. The persistence of neomycin in the udder and the fact that it works synergistically with the other ingredients makes this a great option for drying off cows. In an in vitro-study carried out independently on behalf of Bimeda, the antibacterial activity of Multishield DC compared favourably to a broad-spectrum leading multi-active rival’.
He added, ‘With British farming likely to come under increased pressure to reduce their use of cephalosporins, we feel the launch of a non-cephalosporin containing dry cow tube is a positive development for the UK market.’
UK Sales Manager Andrew Lane noted; ‘following on from our launch of Boviseal Non-Antibiotic Teat Sealant last year, we are pleased to bring another quality intramammary to the UK market. Boviseal and Multishield are part of Bimeda’s rapidly expanding dairy product range. While Boviseal acts as a physical barrier to prevent new infection, Multishield DC treats existing infections’.
Multishield DC has a meat withdrawal of 28 days and a milk withdrawal of 96 hours post-calving in cows with a dry period of more than 50 days.
Multishield DC is registered POM-V medicine. Vm: 12597/4058
