External Teat Sealant for Dry Cows

AUXILIUM® Dry is an external teat sealant used for the dry and pre-calving period of the dairy cow. It is used to aid in the prevention of mastitis infection caused by bacteria migration into the teat canal by a physical barier.

AUXILIUM® Dry assists the forming of the natural keratin plug in the teat canal during the dry period and thus protects the udder against new infections. Even organisms as small as mycoplasma do not come through the barrier protection.

Product features and characteristics:
  • Impervious physical barrier formulated with natural ingrdients
  • Stays on the teat up to 7 days
  • Water resistant and not soluble in milk
  • High visible blue color
  • Easy to use
  • Reduces the risk of new infections during the dry period
  • Even the smallest micro-organisms such as Mycoplasma bovis and Mycoplasma californicum do not come through the barrier protection

Particularly in the first few days of drying off and just before calving the teat canal is especially vulnerable because the natural keratin plug in the teat canal just slowly forms respectively has regressed.
The dry period is the shortest but most important phase of the cow. During this period the course of the next lactation is determined. The healthier the cow starts in the lactation, the more she can afford.

Recommended use (barrier keeps 4-7 days)
  • When drying off the barrier schould be available the first 10 days
  • 10 days pior to calving (also for heifers)
  • 3 - 5 days before calving (repeat if necessary)

Recommended application:
  • Completely milk out the cow
  • Clean teat end and disinfect (1 towel per cow)
  • If necessary use dry cow antibiotic or teat cannula according to the manufacturer recommendation
  • Dip the teat in AUXILIUM® Dry using a disposable dipcup and let it dry. If necessary dip a second time

AUXILIUM® Dry is available in 0,95 Lliter cans.
