Immunostimulant for BRD treatment
Bayer HealthCare Animal Health introduces DNA Immunostimulant Zelnate, a new innovation to aid in the treatment of bovine respiratory disease (BRD) due to Mannheimia haemolytica. This is the first immunostimulant to reduce mortality and lung lesions by enhancing the animal’s own immune system to help fight BRD, potentially reducing the need for antibiotics. Zelnate is not an antibiotic or a vaccine—DNA Immunostimulants help jumpstart the immune system. It is labeled for cattle four months of age or older, as an intramuscular injection, at the time of or within 24 hours after a perceived stressful event. It has a 21-day withdrawal before slaughter and is available in five, 10 and 50 dose package sizes. For more information, visit www.Zelnate.com.
