Lowest treatment cost per day
Compared with other prescription antimicrobials, EXCEDE® gives you up to four times more doses per 100-mL or 250-mL bottle. Compared with other major antimicrobials, EXCEDE offers the lowest treatment cost per day.1-5
For BRD and foot rot, administer EXCEDE as a single subcutaneous injection at a dose of 1.5 mL per 100 lb. body weight.
Administering EXCEDE in the base of the ear will result in less trim loss and no injection site lesions or hide damage. Proper administration is important to ensure product safety and efficacy while minimizing meat withdrawal times.
EXCEDE is injected subcutaneously in the ear using one of three base-of-ear (BOE) administration methods.* EXCEDE is not approved for administration in the neck or other tissue. See product insert and information below for proper BOE administration techniques. Watch the training videos, and contact your Zoetis representative for a demonstration on proper administration of EXCEDE.
Three base-of-ear administration methods**
Hold the syringe and needle behind the ear to be dosed so the needle and syringe point in an imaginary line toward the animal’s eye on the same side as the head. See Figures 1 and 2.
Insert the needle through the loose skin at the base of the ear (BOE) while maintaining the needle position. See Figure 2.
Hold the syringe and needle above the ear to be dosed so that the needle and syringe are pointing ventrally toward the BOE. See Figures 3 and 1.
Insert the needle through the loose skin at the BOE while maintaining the needle position. See Figure 3.
Hold the syringe and needle behind the ear to be dosed so the needle and syringe point in an imaginary line toward the animal’s opposite eye. See Figures 4 and 1.
Insert the needle through the loose skin at the BOE while maintaining the needle position. See Figure 4.
*Middle-of-the-ear administration is approved for beef cattle. For details, consult your Zoetis representative.
**A 16 gauge, ½- to ¾-inch needle is recommended for base-of-ear administration.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR CATTLE: People with known hypersensitivity to penicillin or cephalosporins should avoid exposure to EXCEDE. EXCEDE is contraindicated in animals with known allergy to ceftiofur or to the ß-lactam group (penicillins and cephalosporins) of antimicrobials. Inadvertent intra-arterial injection is possible and fatal. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Pre-slaughter withdrawal time is 13 days following the last dose.
