|Cattle Respiratory Disease - BisolvonÂ® and MetacamÂ®
Respiratory disease in calves, caused by a range of different infectious agents, accounts for major economic loss to the agricultural industry. Although primarily an infectious disease, management factors are significant in dictating the incidence and severity of outbreaks.|
|BisolvonÂ® Injection and powder is indicated as an aid to the treatment of respiratory disease in cattle (pigs and small animals) where mucus is a complicating factor. Bisolvon leads to the production of less viscous mucous and increases the concentration of administered antibiotics. Bisolvon is available in an injectable and oral formulation.
MetacamÂ® (meloxicam), 20mg/ml solution for injection for cattle. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as Metacam are now standard therapy for the treatment of calf respiratory disease alongside antibiotic therapy. These drugs lead to a more rapid reduction in fever and reduction in long-term lung damage than antibiotics alone. Calves treated with Metacam feel better, quicker, and show less impairment of feed intake and a resultant loss in productivity. Metacam differs from other available NSAIDs in that its effects last for three days and it is licensed for use in lactating cattle.
