Bayer HealthCare has received FDA approval for Baytril® 100 (enrofloxacin) Injectable for control of all four major BRD pathogens in beef and non-lactating dairy cattle at high risk of developing BRD.
Baytril 100 is the first and only fluoroquinolone approved for treatment of BRD and control of BRD in high-risk cattle, providing flexibility in treatment protocols. Cattle producers and veterinarians now can rely on Baytril 100 for the treatment of BRD associated with Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Histophilus somni and Mycoplasma bovis in beef and non‑lactating dairy cattle; and, for the control of BRD in beef and non-lactating dairy heifers less than 20 months of age at high risk of developing BRD associated with M. haemolytica, P. multocida, H. somni and M. bovis.
BRD has a significant health and economic impact on cattle operations across the country. Particularly susceptible are cattle at high risk of developing infections due to stress from travel and co-mingling with other cattle.
Specific high-risk factors for cattle can include:
- Transportation with animals from two or more farm origins
- Extended transport time with few to no rest stops
- Environmental temperature changes of ≥30°F between locations, within a
24-hour period upon arrival
- Exposure to wet or cold weather conditions
- Excessive shrink (more than would be expected with normal load of cattle)
- Stressful arrival processing procedures, such as castration or dehorning
- Exposure within previous 72 hours to animals showing clinical signs of BRD
Available in 100 mL, 250 mL and 500 mL bottles, Baytril 100 has been a choice for many bovine veterinarians and cattle producers since its introduction in 1998 and is the largest-selling, single-dose antibiotic in its class. The first FDA-approved fluoroquinolone antimicrobial for use against BRD, Baytril 100 is a proven and effective BRD antimicrobial.
