Costs of re-treatments, milk loss and the spread of pathogens associated with mastitis relapse offer tremendous incentive to completely cure disease. But too often, mastitis treatments end before the infection is completely cured, meaning pathogenic bacteria may remain in the udder.
With a flexible-label mastitis treatment, you have the option to treat for up to eight days on-label to help achieve a complete bacteriological cure, which can mean more milk in the tank. Cows with complete mastitis cures gave 8.8 pounds more milk than cows not cured, according to a Cornell University study.1
Stopping treatment because clinical symptoms clear up doesn’t guarantee a complete cure. Using a mastitis treatment with a flexible-label therapy option allows you to treat once daily for up to eight consecutive days, giving you a better chance to reach a bacteriological cure.
