Used for the treatment of bovine mastitis in lactating cows. Masti-Clear is effective against udder infections caused by Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae and Streptococcus uberis. For best results administer Masti-Clear promptly at the first signs of mastitis. Treatment may be repeated at 12 hour intervals, up to a total of 3 doses.
Dosage: The dose is 10mL of this product per infected quarter administered by intramammary infusion. Treatment may be repeated at intervals of 12 hours. Do not administer more than three consecutive doses. If abnormal milk, redness, or swelling persists or increases, discontinue use and consult your veterinarian.
Milk out udder completely. Wash udder and teats thoroughly with warm water containing a suitable dairy disinfectant. Dry thoroughly. Saturate a small piece of cotton with a suitable antiseptic such as 70 percent alcohol and wipe off teat, using a separate piece of cotton for each teat. The hands of the operator should be washed and dried before the administration of each treatment. Appropriate sanitation and management procedures to prevent and/or control bovine mastitis should be instituted.
When using this product remove plastic cover from tip of syringe and, while holding teat firmly, insert tip into streak canal; then push plunger and inject entire contents. After injection, grasp the end of the teat firmly, then gently massage the medication up the teat canal into the milk cistern.
Treated quarters should not be milked for at least six hours after treatment but should be milked at regular intervals thereafter. Treatment may be repeated at 12 hour intervals, up to a total of three doses, as indicated by the clinical response.
NOTE: Mastitis cannot be considered cured until bacteriologic examination of milk samples taken approximately three weeks after treatment demonstrates the absence of causative microorganisms.
Each 10mL single dose syringe contains:
PENICILLIN G PROCAINE
Signs of mastitis include:
1. Inflammation of the udder or teat. Inflammation may be recognized by redness, swelling, elevated temperature, or pain in the affected part.
2. Abnormal milk. Presence of flakes or clots in the milk, or milk of a watery character is usually indicative of a mastitis infection.
3. High white-cell counts. The routine use of the California Mastitis Test is encouraged. A high incidence of scores in excess of CMT 2 or a high CMT score on bulk milk samples may indicate a potential mastitis problem. In these situations a veterinarian should be consulted for a definitive diagnosis and recommendations.
