Carpentersville, IL — Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition recently introduced Advance® Calf Medic Plus™, a medicated, all-milk protein milk replacer for treating scours and pneumonia in calves. Containing the maximum medication level of Oxytetracycline and Neomycin Sulfate allowed, calf raisers should feed Calf Medic Plus for the treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by Escherichia coli and bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever complex) caused by Pasteurella mutocida susceptible to oxytetracycline; plus the treatment and control of colibacillosis (bacterial enteritis) caused by E. coli susceptible to neomycin.

Calf Medic Plus provides total nutrition for quick recovery. It has been specially formulated to supply needed dairy nutrients, extra fat for vital energy, more vitamin E to boost the immune system and electrolytes for quick re-dehydration lost during scouring. “Based on new regulations, Calf Medic Plus tops the market with the highest approved treatment levels of Oxytetracycline and Neomycin Sulfate for maximum effectiveness,” says Lee Scoville, Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition Director of Consumer Products. “Dairy producers finally have an instant mixing, all-milk protein, complete formula medicated for the treatment of both calf scours and pneumonia.”

Calf Medic is also available in a concentrated formulation for larger-scale treatment. With a feeding rate of 1,000 mg of Oxytetracycline and 1,000 mg of Neomycin Sulfate per 100 pounds of body weight daily, Advance® Calf Medic Concentrate is ideal for multiple calves at one time. This product is mixed with non-medicated milk replacer to treat calves with scours or pneumonia.

In addition, Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition announces a new look for Calf Medic Plus and Calf Medic Concentrate packaging. “We’re really excited about introducing the new Calf Medic family of products, now available in more convenient bags with a heavy-duty zipper for an airtight seal,” adds Scoville.

Milk Specialties Global Animal Nutrition offers a spectrum of specialty dairy ingredients used in the formulation and processing of animal nutrition products, as well as a comprehensive line of milk replacers, ration supplements and rumen-inert fats. The group uses a combination of leading-edge research, precision processes and industry expertise to deliver consistently superior products.
