Orbeseal is an off-white smooth paste, presented in syringes each containing 4g intramammary suspension containing 65% bismuth subnitrate, in a mineral oil vehicle.
Orbeseal is indicated for the prevention of new intramammary infections throughout the dry period in cattle. In cows likely to be free of sub-clinical mastitis, Orbeseal can be used on its own in dry cow management and mastitis control. In cows that may have sub-clinical mastitis, Orbeseal may be used following administration of a suitable dry cow antibiotic treatment to the infected quarter. Selection of cows for treatment with Orbeseal should be based on veterinary clinical judgement.
Legal Category: POM-V
For intramammary infusion only. Infuse the contents of one syringe of Orbeseal into each udder quarter immediately after the last milking of the lactation (at drying off). Do not massage the teat or udder after infusion of the product.
It is essential that the teat is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with surgical spirit or alcohol-impregnated wipes. The teats should be wiped until the wipes are no longer visibly dirty. Teats should be allowed to dry prior to infusion. Infuse aseptically and take care to avoid contamination of the syringe nozzle. Following infusion it is advisable to use an appropriate teat dip or spray.
Meat: Zero days
Milk: Zero days
It is important to observe strict aseptic technique for the administration of Orbeseal, because the product does not have antimicrobial activity. Care must be taken not to introduce pathogens into the teat in order to reduce the risk of post-infusion mastitis.
Do not use Orbeseal alone in cows with sub-clinical mastitis at drying off. The compatibility of Orbeseal has only been shown with a cloxacillin-containing dry cow preparation.
Do not administer any other intramammary product following administration of Orbeseal. Do not use in cows with clinical mastitis at drying off. Do not use during lactation. If accidentally used in a lactating cow, a small (up to 2-fold) transient rise in somatic cell count may be observed. In such an event, strip out the seal manually. No additional precautions are necessary.
Under cold conditions the product may be warmed to room temperature in a warm environment, to aid syringeability. Individual syringes must not be placed in water.
Use the syringe once only.
Package quantities: 24 and 120 syringes
