    OPTI-SERT®

    • With the OPTI-SERT tip, partial insertion reduces the incidence of new infections during the dry period.
    • Studies have shown that when infusing into the udder at a depth of 2 to 3 millimeters, as opposed to 5 or more millimeters, new intramammary infections can be reduced by as much as 50 percent.1

    Product Description

    DRY-CLOX is a dry-cow antibiotic mastitis treatment that provides bactericidal activity against Gram-positive bacteria including Strep agalactiae, penicillin-resistant Staph aureus and non-penicillinase-producing Staph aureus.

    Since 95 percent of infections at dry-off are caused by Gram-positive pathogens,2 DRY-CLOX is a very effective choice.

    Each 10 mL, disposable, ready-to-use syringe contains the active ingredient cloxacillin benzathine.  At dry-off, at least 30 days prior to calving, infuse a 10 mL syringe per quarter (500 mg cloxacillin activity per syringe) after each quarter has been completely milked out.

    Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

    Features and Benefits

    Proven Efficacy

    In a head-to-head trial, DRY-CLOX worked as well as Spectramast® DC (ceftifour hydrochloride). There was no statistical difference in the following areas.2

    • Intramammary infections post-calving
    • Risk for cure
    • Risk for new infection during the dry period
    • Risk for culling
    • Risk for clinical mastitis before 100 days in milk
    • Dairy Herd Improvement Association (DHIA) test performance for milk, butterfat percent, protein percent and somatic cell count (SCC) up to 100 days in milk (DIM)

     

    Profit building

    • With zero milk withhold,* DRY-CLOX gets cows back in the milking string soon after calving, giving you more milk to sell and more peace of mind.
    • DRY-CLOX lets you cure dry-cow mastitis for less, saving producers, on average, more than 33 percent per cow compared to Spectramast® DC.3

     

    *DRY-CLOX RESIDUE WARNING: For use in dry cows only.  Do not use within 30 days of calving.  Any animal infused with this product must not be slaughtered for food until 30 days after the lastest infusion.

    Partial insertion reduces new infections

    • With the OPTI-SERT applicator tip, partial insertion reduces the incidence of new infections during the dry period.
    • Studies have shown that when infusing into the udder at a depth of 2 to 3 millimeters, as opposed to 5 or more millimeters, new intramammary infections can be reduced by as much as 50 percent.1

    Part of an effective dry-cow protocol

      DRY-CLOX is part of an effective dry-cow protocol that can be used in conjunction with other Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health USA Inc. products.
      Lockout® (bismuth subnitrate) is a better-engineered teat sealant that aids in the prevention of new intramammary infections, and has zero milk withhold.
      J-Vac® is a broad-spectrum bacterin-toxoid that aids in the prevention of mastitis caused by Escherichia coli and the effects of endotoxemia cuased by E. coli and Salmonella Typhimurium.

    Safety Information:

    For use in dry cows only. Do not use within 30 days of calving. Any animal infused with this product must not be slaughtered for food until 30 days after the latest infusion.

    Because it is a derivative of 6-aminopenicillanic acid, DRY-CLOX has the potential for producing allergic reactions. Such reactions are rare; however, should they occur, the subject should be treated with antihistamines or pressor amines, such as epinephrine.
