The first comprehensive dry cow therapy program
Discover how Zoetis products can help treat subclinical mastitis infections and protect against new ones so you can make the most of the next lactation.
Only consider one approach to dry off: a complete one
Your cows deserve extra attention at dry off, because you need the best-quality milk and production from them in every lactation. Studies show that up to 50% of new mastitis infections occur in the dry cow period.1
Dry off starts with SPECTRAMAST® DC (ceftiofur hydrochloride) Sterile Suspension for treatment of subclinical mastitis associated with Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus dysgalactiae and Streptococcus uberis. And, with zero milk discard, you can get them into the milking string faster. Plus, it’s backed by the Residue Free Guarantee™,* so you don’t have to worry about the financial impact of a residue violation in milk or meat.Get product details
With ORBESEAL®, you get the only internal teat sealant with 16 years of proven on-farm results. ORBESEAL helps seal out environmental mastitis-causing pathogens from entering the teat canal by mimicking a cow’s natural first line of defense, its keratin plug. Plus, using ORBESEAL with SPECTRAMAST® DC (ceftiofur hydrochloride) Sterile Suspension has been demonstrated to boost profits by approximately $21 per cow compared with using another dry cow tube.2‑6Get product details
A comprehensive approach to dry off includes vaccination against Escherichia coli (E. coli) mastitis. Control clinical signs associated with E. coli mastitis in a safe and effective way with ENVIRACOR® J-5. Vaccinating against E. coli mastitis helps lessen the severity of E. coli mastitis cases and helps provide an opportunity for successful treatment.Get product details
