Shortest required dry period with
zero milk withhold post-calving.
ORBENIN-DC™ (cloxacillin benzathine intramammary infusion) delivers targeted treatment of Gram-positive bacteria with the shortest required dry period – only 28 days – and no milk withhold. So fresh cows can move into the milking string faster.
Targeting the most common type of subclinical mastitis.
More than 94% of cows with subclinical mastitis at dry-off are infected with Gram-positive bacteria (environmental staphs and streps).1,2 Gram-negative infections such as E. coli usually self-cure during lactation, making ORBENIN-DC an ideal choice at dry-off.
Dosage & Administration
- Each 10-mL tube contains 500 mg of cloxacillin.
- Infuse one tube of ORBENIN-DC, warmed to room temperature, into each quarter.
- Available in 12-syringe boxes.
- Syringes have a short tip for fewer intramammary infections.
- Compared to full insertion, partial insertion has been shown to reduce new infection risk by 50%.3
See product label for complete directions and dosing regimen.
ORBENIN-DC is an intramammary infusion containing benzathine cloxacillin that targets Gram-positive bacteria. Research has shown that ORBENIN-DC is as effective as leading competitors in treating and preventing mastitis in dry cows.
This non-inferiority study found no difference based on clinical mastitis, somatic cell count, reproductive performance and milk production.
No items to show.
The dry period is an important time to minimize mastitis risk
and vaccinate cows to protect their calves from scours.
