Elaclox DCX (AUS)
ELACLOX DCX is a stable intramammary suspension prepared under sterile conditions. Each 5.4 g syringe contains 600 mg CLOXACILLIN (as the benzathine salt) in a long-acting base.
ELACLOX DCX is formulated for the control of mastitis at the point of drying off, that is immediately after the last milking of the lactation. Effective antibiotic levels are maintained in the udder of the dry cow for 7-8 weeks.
ELACLOX DCX is bactericidal in action and is non-irritant in the udder tissues.
ELACLOX DCX is highly effective against Streptococcus agalactiae and other streptococcal species, penicillin resistant and sensitive staphylococci and Arcanobacterium pyogenes and other species susceptible to cloxacillin.
Dosage & Administration
Infuse the contents of one syringe per quarter immediately after the final milking of a lactation. Prior to infusing ELACLOX DCX clean and disinfect the teat. Infuse one syringe ELACLOX DCX into each quarter then teat dip or spray the teat. It is normally unnecessary and undesirable to introduce further treatment during the dry period.
ELACLOX DCX is presented in syringes with a variable tip. This variable tip allows for either full or partial insertion into the teat orifice. Partial insertion only is preferable, as it may prevent unnecessary damage to the teat orifice. Full insertion will be needed for large teat orifices.
