EXCEDE®: VITAL TO DAIRY WELLNESS
Acute metritis can cause painful interruptions in the dairy production cycle, felt by your cows and you. EXCEDE® (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension gives you the demonstrated efficacy of ceftiofur with the convenience of a two-dose regimen and no pen moves, enabling your cows to recover and your dairy operation to continue to thrive.
BENEFITS OF EXCEDE INCLUDE*:
PROVEN PERFORMANCE YOU CAN COUNT ON
Cows with acute metritis treated with two doses of EXCEDE delivered 72 hours apart experienced a significantly (P < 0.0001) greater cure rate than untreated cows.1
CONCENTRATION OF EXCEDE FOLLOWING ADMINISTRATION2
LS-mean DCA plasma concentration time profile following two subcutaneous injections of EXCEDE 72 hours apart at a dose of 3.0 mg CE/lb. (6.6 mg CE/kg) BW in 12 lactating cows.2
TREAT METRITIS SUCCESSFULLY WITH TWO-DOSE REGIMEN
This convenient two-dose regimen is your go-to for treating acute metritis. EXCEDE is the only injectable antibiotic that is effective when only given twice. This means less handling of the cows, which is better for them and better for you. Using a convenient base of ear (BOE) administration, EXCEDE (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension fits any fresh cow health routine. And, when used according to label directions, you have zero milk discard and no need for pen moves.
