Reduce Mastitis Relapse with Extended Duration of Therapy

”Pfizer
Mastitis is always a costly disease, but the cost and inconvenience can be magnified even further if a treated cow relapses with a recurring infection. Utilizing extended duration of therapy can help provide the best chance for a complete cure, helping reduce the chance of relapse and cost of treatment failure.


Ruben Gonzalez, quality milk manager with Pfizer Animal Health, discusses how to set up extended therapy protocols.

Work with your veterinarian to develop appropriate treatment protocols that may include extended therapy:

1. Implement an ongoing culturing program to identify common pathogens on the dairy

2. Review culture data to develop appropriate treatment protocol options

3. Train employees to identify mastitis and make proper treatment decisions

4. Treat early and aggressively to help improve the chance of a complete cure
