WHY EXCEDE®?

EXCEDE® (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension is an effective and convenient treatment for acute metritis in cattle. In addition, EXCEDE is supported by a best-in-class field force that provides continuous support to dairy producers.

BENEFITS OF EXCEDE INCLUDE:

checkbox

ZERO MILK DISCARD

Keep your milk in the tank and profits in the bank.

checkbox

ONLY TWO INJECTIONS

checkbox

NO PEN MOVES

BQA FRIENDLY

Because it’s administered subcutaneously at the base of the ear, EXCEDE supports Beef Quality Assurance.

In addition, EXCEDE is a proven therapy for bovine respiratory disease (BRD) and bovine foot rot. And EXCEDE is backed by the Residue Free Guarantee™* from Zoetis, a promise no other animal health company has made. When you use EXCEDE according to the label, you don’t have to worry about violative ceftiofur residues in milk or meat.

KEEP YOUR CATTLE HEALTHY

Sickness in cattle can be costly. Left untreated, economic losses can include labor and treatment costs, milk discard, decreased weight gain and death loss.

One instance of metritis can cost a producer more than $350 — and the costs keep adding up: from decreased milk production and discarded milk to increased veterinary treatments, reduced fertility and prolonged days open to additional culling.3

In the U.S. dairy industry, respiratory disease is the leading cause of illness and death in weaned calves.5 Morbidity due to BRD affects survivability while reducing dairy performance later in life.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: 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 β-lactam group (penicillins and cephalosporins) of antimicrobials. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. The administration of antimicrobials in horses under conditions of stress may be associated with diarrhea, which may require appropriate veterinary therapy. In cattle, inadvertent intra-arterial injection is possible and fatal. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Pre-slaughter withdrawal time in cattle is 13 days.
