UBRO RED Dry Cow Intramammary Suspension.


Each Ubro RED Dry Cow intramammary injector contains:

Framycetin sulphate

100 mg

Penethamate hydriodide

100 mg

Procaine penicillin

300 mg

suspended in a white sterile slow-release ointment base.


Ubro RED Dry Cow contains a combination of an aminoglycoside, a penicillin ester and a penicillin salt, which gives a wide spectrum of antibacterial activity suspended in a slow-release base specifically designed for dry cow therapy. Routine dry cow therapy is established as an important part of mastitis control, in conjunction with teat dipping and other managemental factors. UBRO RED Dry Cow is indicated for the management of subclinical infections present at drying off and to assist in preventing new infections occurring during the dry period. In the case of E. coli infections, this results in a reduction in the incidence of clinical mastitis during the first 100 days of the following lactation. Following infusion, framycetin sulphate and the penicillin components are released slowly by the base and retained in the udder over a prolonged period. Penethemate hydriodide has a similar range of activity as procaine penicillin and, in-vitro, micro-organisms sensitive to the procaine penicillin/penethamate hydriodide combination include streptococci, penicillin-sensitive staphylococci, Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Corynebacteria bovis and anaerobic micrococci. The penicillin component of UBRO RED Dry Cow will remain above the M.I.C.'s of these micro-organisms for up to 3 weeks in most dry udders. Micro-organisms, sensitive in-vitro to framycetin include penicillin resistant staphylococci, E coli and other Gram-negative bacteria. The framycetin component of UBRO RED Dry Cow will remain above the M.I.C.'s of these micro-organisms for up to 14 weeks in most dry udders, though the effect of "bagging up" will reduce the concentration of framycetin to insignificant levels from a few days before calving

Dosage and administration

One injector per quarter at drying off.

Each quarter should be infused with the contents of one injector immediately after the last milking of lactation. Before infusion the teats should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected and care should be taken to avoid contamination of the injector nozzle. Following infusion, the teats should be dipped or sprayed with a teat disinfectant.
