I-deal Barrier Teat Dip Indications

I-DEAL™ is a unique germicidal 10,000 ppm iodine teat dip that forms a protective barrier on the teat. Helps control common bacterial organisms known to cause mastitis by providing broad spectrum antimicrobial protection after dipping.

Equally effective against both infectious mastitis organisms and environmental types, such as Escherichia coli.

Use a post-milking teat dip on each teat as an aid in a complete cow-care program to help reduce the spread of organisms which may cause mastitis.

Directions For Use

Immediately after milking, use I-DEAL™ at full strength. Submerge entire teat in I-DEAL™ solution. Allow to air dry. Do not wipe. Always use fresh, full strength I-DEAL™. If product in dip cup becomes visibly dirty, discard contents and replenish with undiluted product. Do not reuse or return unused product to the original container. Do not turn cows out in freezing weather until I-DEAL™ is completely dry.

Wash teats thoroughly just prior to next milking with appropriate udder wash solution or pre-milking teat dip. Teats should then be dried with a single-service towel. Use proper procedures for washing or pre-dipping.

Note: I-DEAL™ is not intended to cure to help the healing of chapped or irritated teats. In case of teat irritation or chapping, have the condition examined and, if necessary, treated by a veterinarian.

For cautionary and first aid information, consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or product label.

Precaution(s): Transport and store between 40°F (4°C) and 100°F (37.8°C). Do not freeze. Product damaged if frozen. Product that has been frozen and thawed may appear watery with clumps of material and will not produce a uniform film on the teat.

Caution(s): Important: Do not mix I-DEAL™ with any other teat dip or other products. If transferred from product container to any other, make sure that other container is thoroughly precleaned and bears the proper container labeling for I-DEAL™.
