Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health is now supplying Cepravin dry cow antibiotic treatment in a new “flexi-cap” tube which offers two ways of infusing the product into the cows’ teats.
 
Cepravin's new flexi-capOne of the most popular dry cow tubes on the market, Cepravin’s new flexi-cap combines the “proven and effective antibiotic component” with a new cap and nozzle, which aims to be kinder to teat ends.
 
According to the company, the new cap is easier to remove and can be quickly flicked off with a fingernail whilst the shorter, thinner nozzle option may reduce the chances of damaging the teat canal and teat end.

Farmers can be assured that administering Cepravin dry cow therapy with a shorter, thinner nozzle still delivers the antibiotic where it needs to be, and at the correct dose.
 
Jennifer O’Connor, vet adviser at manufacturers Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health, said: “The teat canal is a vital barrier to infection. A gentle infusion technique is essential to avoid causing damage, reducing its ability to close properly and form a keratin plug to help keep infection out. We are delighted to be introducing an innovative development for one of the UK’s most widely used dry cow tubes.”
