New easier-to-use Antibiotic Spray


A new oxytetracycline antibiotic spray that promises greater convenience and less product wastage for livestock farmers is available from veterinary practices.

Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health has developed new EngemycinTM Spray to address problems reported with traditional aerosol cans.

Antibiotic sprays are used widely, yet they can become a practical nuisance simply because many cans do not perform satisfactorily, says Alasdair King MRCVS from Intervet/Schering-Plough.

All too frequently the nozzle leaks or detaches, the spray pattern is irregular particularly if the can is held upside down as it so often needs to be or the valve clogs before the can is empty. This can be a source of great frustration to users, but new Engemycin Spray overcomes all these problems.

Engemycin Spray combines a unique, quick-drying formulation with an innovative, non-clogging spray valve. The quick-drying formulation minimises wastage from the sprayed area, while the new valve which works as well when the can is upside down ensures more reliable and constant delivery of antibiotic. The valve is unique and designed to enable the can to fully empty.

Engemycin Spray is licensed for the treatment of foot and wound infections in cattle, sheep or pigs following surgery or physical injury. Further information is available from veterinary surgeons.
