Novodry Plus Suspension Indications

For the treatment of mastitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus and/or Streptococcus agalactiae, and for the prevention of mastitis caused by Streptococcus agalactiae.

DOSAGE: 10 mL per quarter immediately after drying off.

ADMINISTRATION: At the time of drying off, milk the udder by stripping. Wash the teats and udder thoroughly with warm water containing a suitable dairy antiseptic. Dry the teats and udder thoroughly. Using an alcohol swab enclosed (new one for each teat), clean each teat end well. Warm PLASTET™ to body temperature and shake well. Choose the desired insertion length (full or partial) and insert tip into the teat canal; push plunger to dispense the entire contents of the PLASTET into the quarter. Repeat procedure on other quarters. Massage the udder well after treatment to distribute the medication throughout the quarters. Using a suitable teat dip, dip all teats following treatment. Discard empty Plastet.

Directions for the Flexi-Tube® System: The Flexi-Tube is designed to provide the choice of either insertion of the full cannula, as has traditionally been practiced, or insertion of no more than 4 mm of the cannula, as recommended by the U.S. National Mastitis Council.

a. Full Insertion: Remove the white end cap by pulling straight up as shown. Gently insert the full cannula into the teat canal; carefully infuse the product.

b. Partial Insertion: Remove both the white end cap and the red cannula by pushing sideways as shown. Gently insert the exposed white tip into the teat canal; carefully infuse the product.


Store between 15 and 30°C. Store PLASTETS in carton or pail until used.
