Proven Efficacy


Significantly lower morbidity than Micotil®

A study of 4,080 animals was conducted to compare the efficacy of a single dose of EXCEDE® (1.5 mL/100 lbs.) to a single dose of Micotil® (tilmicosin, 1.5 mL/100 lb.) for metaphylactic BRD control.1

Morbidity at Day 15

At Day 15, morbidity was considerably lower (P < 0.05) for cattle treated with EXCEDE with a seven-day post-metaphylaxis interval (PMI)* than for cattle treated with Micotil with a three-day PMI or negative control cattle.1

Better treatment success than Baytril®2

In a three-site study of 1,760 cattle, a single dose of EXCEDE followed by a seven-day post-treatment interval (PTI)* significantly increased 56-day treatment success compared with a three-day PTI using a single dose of EXCEDE or Baytril.2

56-day treatment success


Fewer treatment failures than Baytril2

Cattle treated with EXCEDE followed by a seven-day PTI resulted in fewer treatment failures than did EXCEDE with a three-day PTI or Baytril followed by a three-day PTI.2
