Intramammary containing penicillin and cloxacillin, used to treat Strep. uberis and Staph. aureus mastitis in dairy cows
Penclox™ 1200 is an intramammary mastitis treatment for lactating dairy cows that contains both procaine penicillin and cloxacillin. This unique combination of antibiotics makes the product ideal to treat the two most common mastitis pathogens in NZ - Strep. uberis & Staph. aureus, meaning one product can conveniently be used throughout the entire lactation.
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 24 hour intervals - three syringes provide a full course of treatment. If required, an extended treatment of 4, 5, or 6 syringes at 24 hour intervals may be given.
It is an offence for users of this product to cause residues exceeding the relevant MRL in the Food Notice: Maximum Residue Levels for Agricultural Compounds.
Available in boxes of 21 syringes.
