Dechra Veterinary Products has unveiled a next generation antibiotic wound treatment with the launch of its new TAF Spray.

TAF Spray: contains a “highly effective” antibiotic.

Thiamphenicol is the active ingredient in the spray, which can be used for superficial wound infections in horses, cattle, goats, sheep and pigs.

TAF Spray can also be used to treat infections of the claw and hoof in cattle, goats and sheep – such as foot rot, interdigital dermatitis and digital dermatitis – and is the only licensed wound spray for horses with a zero-day meat withdrawal period for horses, cattle, goats, sheep, and 14 days for pigs.

Brand manager Emma Jennings said: “Dechra has developed TAF Spray in direct response to the research we conducted among farmers.

“Research has shown 51% of the veterinarians used an antibiotic spray for the treatment of digital dermatitis – an infection 92% of farmers had experienced in their livestock in the past 12 months.

“Thiamphenicol is a highly effective antibiotic. With the brightly coloured spray format making it distinguishable from other treatments and a can that is able to be used in upright and inverted positions, we are sure TAF Spray will become a popular product among veterinary professionals.”

The 360° spray allows wounds to be targeted at any angle, particularly in hard to reach areas, and comes in a 150ml size.
