Item Number: CEFSHOTDC
Cefshot DC 250mg Intramammary Suspension for Cattle.
Indicated for the treatment of subclinical mastitis at drying-off and the prevention of new bacterial infections of the udder during the non-lactating period of cows caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, Streptococcus uberis, Trueperella pyogenes, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella spp.
Dosage and administration
For intramammary use.
A single administration corresponding to the contents of one syringe (250 mg cefalonium) should be infused into the teat canal of each quarter immediately after the last milking of the lactation.
After milking is complete thoroughly clean and disinfect the end of the teat with the cleaning towel provided. Remove the cap fully by holding the barrel of the syringe firmly in one hand and with the thumb and push up along the length of the cap until the cap clicks off. Take care not to contaminate the nozzle. Do not bend the nozzle.
Insert the nozzle into the teat canal and apply steady pressure on the syringe plunger until the full dose has been delivered. Holding the end of the teat with one hand, gently massage upwards with the other to aid dispersion of the antibiotic into the quarter. After infusion it is advisable to dip the teats in an antiseptic preparation specifically designed for this purpose.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in animals with a known hypersensitivity to cephalosporins, other other ß-lactam antibiotics or to any of the excipients.
Do not use during lactation.
Cephalosporins should not be administered concurrently with bacteriostatic antimicrobials. Concomitant use of cephalosporins and nephrotoxic drugs may increase renal toxicity.
Use of the product should be based on susceptibility testing of the bacteria isolated from the animal. If this is not possible, therapy should be based on local (regional, farm level) epidemiological information about susceptibility of the target bacteria.
Use of the product deviating from the instructions given in the SPC/datasheet may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to the cefalonium and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other beta lactams.
The efficacy of the product is only established against the pathogens mentioned in “Uses” above. Consequently, serious acute mastitis (potentially fatal) due to other pathogen species, mainly Pseudomonas aeruginosa, can occur after the drying off. Good hygienic practices should be thoroughly respected in order to reduce that risk; cows should be housed in a hygienic paddock far from the milking parlour and regularly checked for several days after drying off.
In very rare cases (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports) immediate hypersensitivity reactions were observed in some animals (restlessness, tremors, swelling of mammary gland, eyelids and lips). These reactions can lead to death.
Meat and offal: 21 days.
Milk: 96 hours after calving if the dry period is longer than 54 days. 58 days following treatment if the dry period if < 54 days.
Wash hands after use.
Penicillin and cephalosporins may cause hypersensitivity (allergy) following injection, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Hypersensitivity to penicillins may lead to cross-sensitivity to cephalosporins and vice versa. Allergic reactions to these substances may occasionally be serious.
