Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health has launched a new oxytetracycline spray promising more accurate antibiotic delivery whether the can is used in an upright or inverted position.

Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health veterinary manager Alasdair King claims new Engemycin Spray has been developed specifically to address problems reported with traditional aerosol cans.

New  Engemycin SprayHe said: “Antibiotic sprays are used widely, yet they can become a practical nuisance to both vets and farmers simply because many cans do not perform satisfactorily. All too frequently the nozzle leaks or detaches, the spray pattern is irregular – particularly if the can is held upside down as it so often needs to be – or the valve clogs before the can is empty. This can be a source of great frustration to users, but new Engemycin Spray overcomes all these problems.”

Engemycin Spray combines a “unique, quick-drying formulation with an innovative, non-clogging spray valve”. The quick-drying formulation minimises wastage from the sprayed area, while the new valve (which works as well when the can is upside down) is designed to cut spraying time and ensure more reliable and constant delivery of antibiotic. The valve is unique and designed to enable the can to fully empty.

Engemycin Spray is licensed for the treatment of foot and wound infections in cattle, sheep or pigs following surgery or physical injury. The new product is available now from wholesalers.
