Calf Medic Plus Treats Both Scours and Pneumonia

May 4, 2010 11:01 AM

Carpentersville, IL — Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition recently introduced Advance Calf Medic Plus, a medicated, all-milk protein milk replacer for treating scours and pneumonia in calves. Containing the maximum medication level of oxytetracycline and neomycin sulfate allowed, Calf Medic Plus should be fed to calves for the treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by E. coli and bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever complex) caused by Pasteurella multocida susceptible to oxytetracycline, as well as the treatment and control of colibacillosis (bacterial enteritis) caused by E. coli susceptible to neomycin.

Calf Medic Plus provides total nutrition for quick recovery. It has been specially formulated to supply needed dairy nutrients, extra fat for vital energy, more vitamin E to boost the immune system and electrolytes for quick redehydration of fluids lost during scouring. "Based on new regulations, Calf Medic Plus tops the market with the highest approved treatment levels of oxytetracycline and neomycin sulfate for maximum effectiveness,” says Lee Scoville, director of consumer products for Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition. "Dairy producers finally have an instant-mixing, all-milk-protein, complete formula medicated for the treatment of both calf scours and pneumonia.”

Calf Medic is also available in a concentrated formulation for larger-scale treatment. With a feeding rate of 1,000 mg of oxytetracycline and 1,000 mg of neomycin sulfate per 100 lb. of body weight daily, Advance Calf Medic Concentrate is ideal for treating multiple calves at one time. This product is mixed with nonmedicated milk replacer to treat calves with scours or pneumonia.

In addition, Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition announces a new look for Calf Medic Plus and Calf Medic Concentrate packaging. "We're really excited about introducing the new Calf Medic family of products, now available in more convenient bags with a heavy-duty zipper for an airtight seal,” Scoville says.
