Help prevent BRD with effective vaccines

Preventing BRD is generally far more cost-effective than treating the disease. Using vaccines that deliver effective levels of protection can help boost cattle immune response to disease-causing respiratory pathogens. You can trust the respiratory vaccine portfolio from Zoetis because it’s backed by decades of research and combines innovative products with advanced immunization strategies.

INFORCE 3 and ONE SHOT BVD product shots

For example, the concurrent use of Inforce 3® and One Shot® BVD delivers fast, comprehensive respiratory protection, which helps get calves off to a healthy start:

  • Intranasal Inforce 3 stimulates lasting, protective immunity where infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR), bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) and parainfluenza 3 (PI3) respiratory diseases start. 1
  • One Shot BVD provides effective protection against respiratory diseases caused by Mannheimia haemolytica and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses.

Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot® offers comprehensive calf protection that is convenient:

  • Helps prevent respiratory disease caused by IBR virus and viremia from BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses
  • Protects against respiratory disease caused by BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses, BRSV, PI3 virus and bovine pneumonia caused by M. haemolytica

Support Animal Health with Feed Additives

Choose from effective feed additives to provide an extra level of protection, especially in high-risk animals:

  • Aureomycin with logo

    Aureomycin® broad-spectrum respiratory and enteric disease control.*

    On arrival and throughout the feeding period, Aureomycin helps manage diseases that can negatively impact performance.

  • Aureo S 700 with logo

    Aureo S 700® maintains weight gain during high-stress periods.*

    Cattle fed Aureo S 700 during the first 28 days on feed had lower morbidity, chronics and mortality than nonmedicated controls. 2

  • Deccox with logo

    Deccox® prevents coccidiosis that’s common in newly arrived cattle.

    It can reduce treatment costs and performance losses associated with clinical outbreaks later in the feeding period.

From first use to finish: four proven antimicrobials

Even with good management and well-planned vaccination programs, BRD can’t always be prevented. When this happens, work with your veterinarian to select the right antimicrobials to optimize herd health and deliver your best return on investment. Zoetis offers four proven products with different durations of activity, withdrawal periods and modes of action so you can customize a BRD program to your needs. Of these products, Draxxin is backed by research that demonstrates greater efficacy in controlling and treating BRD when compared with other antibiotics — so you’re more likely to knock out BRD in the first round 2.

  • Draxxin with logo

    Draxxin® KP: One Shot. Two Ingredients. Fast Recovery.

    Start treating BRD and control fever quickly with Draxxin® KP (tulathromycin and ketoprofen injection) Injectable Solution. The long-lasting BRD treatment you trust now has added fever control, which may help cattle feel better.3*

  • Draxxin with logo

    Draxxin®: Other treatments were 50% as effective in studies. 45

    Draxxin (tulathromycin injection) Injectable Solution demonstrated 50% fewer re-treats and 50% fewer dead or chronic animals 4 versus competitive products in several large pen studies. 5

  • Excede with logo

    Excede® offers up to seven days of therapy in one dose.

    Excede (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension delivers proven efficacy with seven days of BRD therapy and a unique route of administration to reduce trim loss.

  • Advocin with logo

    Advocin® provides a short, four-day withdrawal.

    With a four-day withdrawal, Advocin (danofloxacin injection) Sterile Antimicrobial Injectable Solution makes it easy to treat market-ready cattle.
