Boviseal is indicated for the prevention of new intramammary infections throughout the dry period. This results in a reduction in the incidence of sub clinical mastitis in cows at calving and of clinical mastitis in the dry period and the subsequent lactation (for at least 60 days after calving).
It is recommended that Boviseal be used as part of a herd approach to dry cow management and mastitis control. Cows considered likely to be free of sub clinical mastitis should be given Boviseal at drying off according to the criteria below.
Other animals should be managed in accordance with an approved mastitis control plan or specific veterinary advice.
