TOMORROW Proper Administration

View the video tutorial to learn how to properly administer TOMORROW in your dairy.

A healthier dry period means better milk. Period.

From efficacy to the economic benefits and value of using fewer antibiotics, these pages will show you how and why TOMORROW tubes are what you need to manage mastitis on your dairy.

Product Description

TOMORROW gives dairy producers time-tested, broad-spectrum control against the harmful organisms that cause mastitis in dry cows.

  • TOMORROW has been an effective extended therapy treatment for more than 25 years, and studies have shown no change in the development of bacterial resistance.1,2
  • TOMORROW has been shown by extensive clinical studies to be efficacious in the treatment of mastitis in dry cows, when caused by Streptococcus agalactiae and Staphylococcus aureus including penicillin-resistant strains.

Presentations:

  • Pail containing 144 x 10 mL syringes and 144 convenient single use alcohol pads.
  • Cartons containing 12 x 10 mL syringes with 12 convenient single use alcohol pads.
TOMORROW is formulated with cephapirin benzathine to provide broad spectrum and long-acting therapy that dry cows need.
  • Unique Opti-Sert® tip helps prevent pushing harmful surface bacteria into the teat canal
  • Reduces the risk of new infections
  • Allows antibiotic contact with teat-canal infections
  • Provides the option of partial or full insertion with an exclusive, easy-to-use protective cap.
Dosage Information
  • Infuse a 10 mL syringe (300 mg cephapirin activity per syringe) once each quarter has been completely milked out.

Safety Information:

TOMORROW should be administered with caution to subjects which have demonstrated some form of allergy, particularly to penicillin. Such reactions are rare; however, should they occur, consult your veterinarian.

  • Residue Warnings
  • For use in dry cows only.
  • Not to be used within 30 days of calving.
  • Milk from treated cows must not be used for food during the first 72 hours after calving.
  • Any animal infused with this product must not be slaughtered for food until 42 days after the latest infusion.

 

 1. A recent head-to-head study conducted on six dairy farms in four states shows less than 5 percent of all dry cow mastitis pathogens at dry-off were Gram-negative.1

2. First-generation cephalosporins continue to maintain high effectiveness against Gram-positive organisms, and are more effective against those pathogens than third-generation cephalosporins.2,3

3. Head-to-head study showed no difference in efficacy between the leading dry cow mastitis tubes.1

4. Authors of the study concluded that "due to the lack of difference in efficacy, other factors should be used in the consideration of dry cow mastitis treatment, including prudent use of antibiotics, withhold times and value."1

5. TOMORROW provides superior value over Spectramast® DC.
