Intramammary containing penicillin, used to treat Strep. uberis mastitis in dairy cows
Intracillin® 1000 Milking Cow is an intramammary mastitis treatment for lactating dairy cows that contains procaine penicillin. It’s the first choice to treat Strep. uberis at calving, and during lactation when a shorter time out of the vat is desired.
The entire contents of one syringe should be infused into the teat canal of each infected quarter immediately following milking. Repeat the treatment twice more at 12 hour intervals - three syringes provide a full course of treatment. If required, an extended treatment of 6 syringes (one after each of 6 successive milkings) may be given.
