Newly-Approved Label Claim for Baytril 100 Broadens Application Options for Cattle Producers

Newly-Approved Label Claim for Baytril 100 Broadens Application Options for Cattle Producers

Baytril 100 has been around for a number of years. Dr. Larry Hawkins of Bayer Animal Health says it is now better than ever due to the approval of a new label claim by the Food and Drug Administration.

“Control is FDA’s word for mass medication or mediphylaxis, as producers and veterinarians would call it, but FDA calls it control. So that broadens the use of Baytril 100 for management of respiratory disease in cattle operations.”

Hawkins says the label change allows for broader use of the product, making it easier and more effective in minimizing the impact of BRD for the producer.

“What it means is for those high-risk cattle that are coming in, it now says right on the label things that identify high-risk. So, things like shipment or comingling or those individuals that one producer would expect to cause disease in the cattle, we can now treat them when they arrive and keep that to a minimum. The results we have so far look good. We’ve got some ongoing testing.”

Baytril 100 has been a gold standard ever since it was introduced. It has been used to treat 30 million animals in the U.S. alone. Its active ingredient, Enrofloxacin, penetrates the bacteria cell and binds the DNA gyrase, resulting in cell death. In cattle, Baytril 100 reaches therapeutic levels at the site of infection in the lungs 1-2 hours after injection.

“Baytril 100 has been the leading drug for respiratory treatment for several years. This is our 14th year with Baytril 100 and it’s still a very, very good treatment for respiratory disease or pneumonia or shipping fever in cattle. So we’re very pleased with Baytril 100 and what it’s been able to do for producers as far as treating respiratory disease. Now, of course, the control was added to that. So, Bayer has continued-even though this product is 14 years old-we’ve continued to add to the claim and the usages for Baytril 100.”
