Teat sealing can be instrumental in avoiding mastitis at calving time. In the weeks leading up to calving, non-antibiotic teat sealing products injected into the teat end form a plug that helps prevents mastitis-causing bacteria from entering.
Successful teat sealing requires a precise application with all precautions taken to ensure things are kept sterile. Keeping both animal and handler safe is also key to a positive outcome and reduced cases of mastitis. We offer an on-farm teat sealing service, so you can leave the tricky bit to our experienced veterinary staff.
