Lactating dairy cattle.
Why use Spectramast LC Lactating Cow Formula?
The antibiotic Spectramast LC Lactating Cow Formula is used to treat clinical or subclinical mastitis in lactating dairy cows. This drug features a 2-day meat withholding time and a 72-hour milk for food slaughter withholding period for the most effective and flexible treatment regimen. The duration of treatment, which might range from 2 to 8 days, has no bearing on the withholding times. This medicine also comes in a single daily dosage that is pre-divided into 10mL (125 mg ceftiofur) disposable syringes for simplicity of use.
How does Spectramast LC Lactating Cow Formula work?
A complete cephalosporin antibiotic is included in this product. When this drug is introduced into an animal's system, it prevents bacteria from forming cell walls. It accomplishes this by triggering bacterial cell lysis by targeting the enzymes required for peptidoglycan production. The bacterium dies as a result of this. The antibiotic and antimicrobial product is useful in treating infections caused by coagulase-negative staphylococci, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, and Escherichia coli.
