How does Spectramast DC Dry Cow Formula work?

Ceftiofur, a broad-spectrum antibiotic, belongs to the cephalosporin class. These antibiotics work by inhibiting the synthesis of the cell wall. Like other types of ß-lactam antimicrobials, cephalosporin antibiotics enact this synthesis by interfering with the specific enzymes that cause peptidoglycan synthesis. This results in bacterial cell lysis, which is responsible for the bactericidal action.

Current Concepts of Bovine Mastitis, 3rd Edition, National Mastitis Council, Arlington, VA.

b. Partial insertion: Remove the red end cap by pulling straight up as shown. Gently insert the exposed white tip into the teat canal; carefully infuse the product.
 
Administration
Treatment: Wash teats thoroughly with warm water containing a suitable dairy antiseptic. Dry teats thoroughly. Milk out udder completely. Using an alcohol pad provided, wipe off the end of the affected teat using a separate pad for each teat.

Reinfection: After successful treatment, reinfection may occur unless good herd management, sanitation, and mechanical safety measures are practiced. Affected cows should be watched carefully to detect recurrence of infection and possible spread to other animals.
