BANAMINE® TRANSDERMAL FAQS
These FAQs should answer most of your questions, but if there is something more you want to know, you can always contact us for more information.
WHAT IS THE MEAT WITHDRAWAL AND MILK WITHHOLD?
Cattle must not be slaughtered for human consumption within eight days of treatment. Milk must not be used for human consumption for 48 hours after treatment.
SHOULD THE DOSE BE ADJUSTED BASED ON AIR TEMPERATURES?
There is no need to adjust the dose. While studies demonstrated peak plasma ﬂunixin concentrations were consistently lower when the pour-on product was administered in cold temperatures vs. hot temperatures, the bioavailability is the same. Clinical effectiveness was demonstrated over a range of environmental temperatures expected under field conditions.
IS THERE CONCERN OVER ANIMALS LICKING BANAMINE TRANSDERMAL FROM TREATED ANIMALS?
No. A study where animals were allowed to self-lick or lick pen mates demonstrated a lower rate and extent of absorption when compared to the animals prevented from licking. However, no dose adjustment is needed to account for the effect of licking because substantial evidence of effectiveness was demonstrated in animals that were allowed to lick1.
