Control fever due to acute
mastitis with new FDA approval
BANAMINE® TRANSDERMAL was determined to be safe
and effective in controlling fever due to acute mastitis.
- Multisite field study with lactating dairy cows between 2 and 12 years of age.
- Cows were not restricted from licking, and in most cases, were free to contact and interact with at least one other cow.
- Cows were also protected from rain and misting systems and did not have access to a cow brush.
- Six hours after treatment rectal temperatures were measured.
- Considered a treatment success if rectal temperature was reduced by ≥ 2º F.
- Treatment success was 95% for animals receiving BANAMINE TRANSDERMAL (p<0.0001) compared to 35% of untreated controls.
- There were no treatment-related adverse reactions within six days following dosing.
