Dry Off Therapy: After the final milking of a lactation, clean and disinfect the teats and introduce the contents of one tube into each quarter via the teat canal. Avoid contamination of the syringe nozzle. When infusing heifers it is important that the syringe nozzle is not introduced into the teat. The recommended procedure is as follows: The animal(s) should be properly restrained. The teats are cleaned and disinfected. The teat orifice is located and the nozzle of the syringe placed against it but NOT inserted. When the syringe plunger is depressed the antibiotic passes easily through the teat into the udder.
