Research shows benefits of ORBESEAL teat sealant
ORBESEAL® teat sealant provides a defensive barrier to help protect cows from new mastitis infections throughout the dry period. Although infusion with a long-acting antibiotic has been demonstrated to be successful at curing subclinical infections and preventing new infections during the dry period, ORBESEAL also acts as a physical barrier to help prevent new bacteria from entering the teat.
As the longest teat sealant on the market, the effectiveness of ORBESEAL is well-researched. In a 2003 trial completed by the University of Minnesota in well-managed, high-producing herds using a mastitis vaccination program, infusing ORBESEAL following dry cow therapy was evaluated against conventional dry cow therapy alone.1
Check out the Milk Quality Focus video where Sandra Godden, DVM, DVSc, University of Minnesota, discusses the trial results. Talk with your Zoetis representative or Zoetis milk quality specialist about how ORBESEAL can help benefit your dry cow mastitis management program.
Refer to the ORBESEAL label for complete instructions on proper administration at dry off and removal at freshening.
