2-dose metritis treatment

Summer heat an added stress
for fresh cows

Summer heat is a stressor for fresh cows. Because they already have a suppressed immune system, added heat stress could be the tipping point for metritis. Be sure to check for udder fullness, a red-brown or watery uterine discharge with a foul smell and “sad cows” while screening fresh cows during the first 10 days after calving. If you think a cow has metritis, work with your veterinarian for a diagnosis and treatment to prevent costly consequences. Even before the heat arrives, talk with your veterinarian about a metritis treatment protocol that includes EXCEDE® (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension. Visit excede.com/metritis to learn more about the new two-dose protocol to treat acute postpartum metritis.
