Reminders in February

Pink Eye 

The practice is seeing an increasing number of cases of Pinkeye. This is a contagious disease of calves spread primarily by close contact with infected animals and by flies. Vaccination with Piliguard can be a cost effective control method although vaccination must be given prior to disease occurring. In the affected animals topical ointments or sub-conjunctive injections with appropriate antibiotics are usually effective in curing the affected animals.

Excede LA Meat Withholding Times

Just a reminder that while the milk WHP for Exceed LA for cattle is NIL, the meat WHP for cattle is 14 days if injected subcutaneously at the base of the ear, or 56 days if injected subcutaneously in the anterior half of the neck.
