Mastitis

Postby RanchMan90 » Thu Oct 26, 2017 8:00 pm

Got a case of mastitis in a non lactating feeder heifer. Took to vet, he recommended a few rounds of la200 therapy. Given a couple rounds of la200 with mixed results, getting tired of running her through chute every couple days. What works on this?

Time and/or the butcher.

You could have a vet come out and treat the quarter itself and milking the puss (assume it's not milkable) will help keep it from going toxic. Otherwise, depending on how big she is, slaughter her after the withdrawal period.

See if your feed store has mastitis tubes. If so get one and infuse it directly up into the quarter. Should knock it in a few days.
