(tulathromycin) Injectable Solution


For dairy calves up to 20 months of age, DRAXXIN is the only anti-infective approved for the treatment of BRD caused by all four major pathogens, including Mycoplasma bovis, and pink eye. It also lends itself to greater efficiency options with its label claim for the treatment of foot rot.
