Demotec 95 Indications

To be used as an adjunct to primary medical care of laming cattle.

Directions For Use

35 mL of liquid should be measured and poured into a beaker, to which the contents of one sachet (70 g powder) should be added. This should then be thoroughly mixed with the spatula provided. Within seconds, a putty-like malleable mass is produced which is easy to mould and which does not adhese to the hands. Applied directly to both the sole of the claw and wooden block the two are then bonded and the mass moulded round the join.

Discussion: The hooves of cattle are subject to infections and/or inflammation whatever standards of husbandry are employed. Such conditions are not only distressing to see and worthy of attention from an humanitarian aspect, but affect the mobility of the animal and cause pain and stress which can adversely affect both milk yields and weight gains.

It is therefore important to take all steps to treat these conditions in the best possible manner and so limit economic losses that may otherwise occur.

The primary medical treatment of the affected hoof should be undertaken as soon as possible, and as an adjunct to this treatment DEMOTEC® can frequently be employed to great advantage.

Usually it is found that only one claw is affected and so it is possible to bond a wooden block to the sole of the sound claw. This not only raises the affected claw out of the dirt, so making medical and surgical treatment more effective, but more importantly it shifts the weight onto the good claw allowing the affected claw to rest.

Manufactured by: Siegfried Demel, Germany.
