New BRD Treatment

Zactran (gamithromycin), a new antimicrobial from Merial, provides control of bovine respiratory disease (BRD) in high-risk cattle or as a first-pull treatment of sick cattle. Zactran is a prescription, ready-to-use solution for the treatment of BRD associated with Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida and Histophilus somni in beef and non-lactating dairy cattle, as well as the control of respiratory disease in beef and non-lactating dairy cattle at high risk of developing BRD associated with M. haemolytica and P. multocida.

Administered subcutaneously at a dose of 2 ml per 110 lb., it is available in three ready-to-use sizes. The 100-, 250- and 500-ml bottles contain sufficient solution to treat 10, 25 and 50 head of 550-lb. cattle, respectively.
