Product description

OrbeSeal Dry Cow is a dry cow intramammary teat sealant device for cattle.

Active ingredients

Each OrbeSeal Dry Cow syringe contains 4 g intramammary paste, containing 65% Bismuth Subnitrate.

Indications for use

OrbeSeal Dry Cow is intended as an aid in the prevention of new intramammary infections of dairy cattle throughout the dry period.

Administration and dosage

  • After last milking at dry-off, clean and disinfect the teats with the alcohol swabs provided. Infuse the entire contents of one syringe of OrbeSeal Dry Cow into each quarter by inserting the nozzle into the teat and applying gentle continuous pressure to the plunger until the paste is expressed.

  • Do not massage teat or udder following infusion. If an antibiotic is infused into the teat, the teat should be re-swabbed with the alcohol swab provided prior to infusion with OrbeSeal Dry Cow.

  • A clean, disinfected and dry teat is essential, as OrbeSeal Dry Cow possesses no antimicrobial activity. It is advisable to use an appropriate teat disinfectant following the infusion.

  • Removal:

    • Do not remove OrbeSeal Dry Cow by action of the milking machine. To reduce the potential for OrbeSeal Dry Cow accumulation in milking machines, aggressively hand-strip OrbeSeal Dry Cow out of every quarter, 10 to 12 strips per quarter, before milking fresh cows. Bucket-milk fresh cows for a minimum of three milkings, if possible.
  • Simple steps to avoid introducing infections during administration of intramammary infusions:

    • Do not place individual syringes in warm/hot water during cold weather.

    • Dry cows off abruptly rather than gradually.

    • Clean teat ends as thoroughly as possible with alcohol and leave to air dry. Do not use water with or without disinfectant.

    • Clean the two teats furthest away first, followed by the two closest.

    • Ensure the teats are clean and dry before infusing OrbeSeal Dry Cow.

    • Infuse the teats in the opposite order to cleansing: i.e. infuse the closest two teats first, followed by the two furthest away.

    • After infusing, dip teats in teat dip or spray with disinfectant and leave cows standing in yard for at least half an hour to allow the teat canal to close.

    • Check cows regularly for signs of mastitis during the first week after drying off.
