“Veterinarians and producers will find the two-dose regimen for EXCEDE to be very efficacious and cost-effective and likely more convenient than daily metritis treatments,” says Dr. Hammon. “What’s also nice about this treatment is that EXCEDE has zero milk withholding, so the cow can remain in the fresh pen, which not only saves time and labor but also, according to the University of Wisconsin-Madison,3 is beneficial to her.”
The protocol for the two-dose EXCEDE treatment begins with the first dose administered at the base of one ear, for example, the left ear. Then, 72 hours later, another dose is administered at the base of the opposite ear; in this example, the right ear. This regimen has been demonstrated effective on-farm.4 In a field research trial conducted on 15 large dairies, 74.3 percent of cows with acute metritis were cured after being treated with two doses of EXCEDE.
