I'm no expert but in my area LA200 is pretty much the medecine used for pinkeye. I've had 3 calves with it this year and they have all been given this along with an eye full of Furall spray. All their eyes cleared up in just a few days.

Spectinomycin (sp) is my drug of choice. I just squirt it in their eye with a syringe and they are better by the next day. I sometimes do it in the pasture by drive by squirting.

The spray you are asking for is usually an back order, try Valley Vet, or Jeffers on line, but LA200 works well, just have to deal with the injection site reactions of that drug, give SQ not IM

I was under the impression Gentomicine is not labeled for cattle (the injectable)... am I wrong? Seems to me years ago my vet in Illinois said it would be something like 16 months withdrawl...
