Determining the true cost of a mastitis cure requires more than just comparing the price per box of mastitis tubes. Consider these five factors when weighing treatment options:
SPECTRAMAST® LC (ceftiofur hydrochloride) Sterile Suspension has a proven bacteriological cure rate of 70.4% using ONLY TWO SYRINGES OF SPECTRAMAST LC, based on efficacy studies conducted by Zoetis involving 352 cows across 13 dairy operations and representing a broad range of mastitis-causing pathogens.1
Labeled to treat both clinical mastitis and diagnosed subclinical mastitis infections caused by a broad spectrum of pathogens, SPECTRAMAST LC has benefits, including:
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to mastitis treatment. Explore options for flexible mastitis treatment that may not only knock out physical mastitis symptoms but also eliminate mastitis-causing bacteria to achieve a bacteriological cure. When you achieve a bacteriological cure the first time, you may limit the need for re-treatment and using additional antibiotics. This is important for the health of your cows as well as critical for your dairy’s bottom line.

IMPORTANT DIAGNOSTIC INFORMATION: SPECTRAMAST LC is intended for use in lactating dairy cattle only with the specified, labeled pathogens. To assure responsible antimicrobial drug use, it is expected that subclinical mastitis will be diagnosed using a positive culture, or other pathogen-specific test, in addition to any other, appropriate veterinary medical evaluation prior to treatment.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: People with known hypersensitivity to penicillin or cephalosporins should avoid exposure to SPECTRAMAST LC.

Use of this product in a manner other than indicated on the label, or failure to adhere to proper milk discard period, will result in violative residues. See full Prescribing Information.
