Mastitis


Mastitis in dairy cattle is an inflammatory reaction of the udder tissue. This potentially fatal mammary gland infection is the most common disease in dairy cattle in New Zealand. It is also the most costly disease in the dairy industry globally.
Mastitis occurs when white blood cells (leukocytes), are released into the mammary gland, usually in response to an invasion of bacteria of the teat canal. Milk-secreting tissue, and various ducts throughout the mammary gland are damaged due to toxins released by the bacteria. Mastitis can also occur as a result of chemical, mechanical, or thermal injury. Mastitis is generally treated with intramammary or injectable antibiotics, as recommended by your vet.
TyloVet 200 Injection is a systemic antibiotic suitable for treating mastitis, especially where more than one quarter may be infected.
KetoMax 15% treats painful, swollen udders. KetoMax should be 'first line' farmer treatment in conjunction with antibiotics.  KetoMax also treats endotoxaemia associated with toxic mastitis (daily treatment required).
MeloxiVet is recommended for use in treating mastitis, in conjunction with antibiotics.   A single injection of MeloxiVet helps reduce pain and inflammation in painful, swollen udders for days. MeloxiVet will also help treat endotoxaemia associated with toxic mastitis. Extensive NZ and European trialwork has shown mastitic cows treated with meloxicam also have improved reproductive performance.
