650 mg/g BISMUTH SUBNITRATE

Claims:

For the prevention of clinical and subclinical mastitis in dairy cows during the non-lactating

(dry) period and early post-calving.

Net Contents:

120 x 4g applicator

Directions for Use:

Restraints:

DO NOT USE in lactating cows

Dosage and

Administration:

During the administration of the product it is important to ensure that infection is not

introduced. Accidental introduction of bacteria into the quarter during insertion of the

intramammary syringe can result in serious mastitis. Thoroughly clean hands prior to

administration and wear clean gloves during administration. Immediately after the last

milking at drying off, prior to treatment with Teatseal, the udder should be stripped and

each teat thoroughly cleaned with a suitable disinfectant.

Carefully infuse the entire contents of one injector into each teat to form a seal, preventing

the ingress of pathogenic bacteria into the udder during the dry period.

After infusion do not massage or squeeze the teat as this may dislodge the seal.

It is recommended that Teatseal be used as part of a herd approach to dry cow

management and mastitis control. Cows considered likely to be free of subclinical mastitis

and at risk for new infection in the dry period should be given Teatseal at drying off. Other

animals should be managed in accordance with an approved mastitis control plan or

specific veterinary advice.

RLP

APPROVED

For practical purposes, selection criteria may be based on the mastitis and cell count

history of individual cows, or recognised tests for the detection of subclinical mastitis, or

bacteriological sampling. As a guide, where there has been no episode of clinical mastitis

and at least three individual cow cell counts are available, cows with all cell counts below

250,000 cells/mL may be given Teatseal.

Maiden heifers (first calvers): Administer Teatseal approximately 4 weeks prior to calving to

reduce the risk of post-calving mastitis.

Use in combination with antibiotic therapy: In cows that have sub-clinical mastitis, Teatseal

may be used following administration of a suitable dry cow antibiotic treatment to the

infected quarter. The dry cow antibiotic should be administered in accordance with the

product label and massaged into the quarter. Following administration redisinfect the teat

and infuse Teatseal as recommended above. After Teatseal infusion do not massage or

squeeze the teat as this may dislodge the seal.

Teatseal prevents subclinical mastitis and lowers Individual Cow Cell Count (ICCC):

In an Australian study under local field conditions, cows treated with dry cow antibiotic

treatment alone were 1.9 times more likely to have a case of subclinical mastitis (ICCC

≥250,000 cells/ml) in the first 60 days of lactation than cows treated with the combination

of Orbenin Enduro and Teatseal. In the same study, the geometric mean ICCC in cows

treated with the combination of Orbenin Enduro and Teatseal was significantly lower than in

cows treated with dry cow antibiotic alone in the first 60 days of lactation.

The combination of Orbenin Enduro and Teatseal may be beneficial for preventing

subclinical mastitis and associated increases in somatic cell count.

General Directions:

Milking machine advice: To reduce the potential for Teatseal accumulation in milking

machines and reduce the risk of particles entering milk in the vat, thoroughly hand-strip

Teatseal out of each quarter, 10 to 12 strips per quarter, at the first milking of fresh cows.

Where possible, avoid removal of Teatseal by the milking machine.

Keep milk from fresh cows out of the vat for a minimum of 8 milkings (10 milkings in

induced cows) or in line with industry standards designed to minimise colostrums entering

milk for processing. If possible, use designated clusters and test buckets during this time

to minimise adherence to rubberware and milk lines. Clean milking equipment carefully to

prevent particles entering the vat. Change filter socks regularly, particularly if residual teat

sealant is visible on the filter.

TEATSEAL is designed to sit in the teat canal during the dry period. This means that the

administration process should focus on ensuring that the product does not travel up in the

higher udder tissue. This is in contrast to the administration of antibiotic dry cow therapy

which is required to be infused into the udder tissue to ensure efficacy and duration of

treatment. Care should be taken when administering TEATSEAL to ensure that it stays in

the teat canal. Failure to do this may mean that the product has reduced efficacy and may

not be fully removed by 8 milkings.

Key points:

*Plan for the time and labour that treatment takes.

* More than one person is often needed to do the job well.

* Ensure people administering TEATSEAL are trained adequately in the procedure.

*Keep the number of cows to be treated after any one milking to a manageable number.

TEATSEAL Infusion Instructions:

Thoroghly clean hands prior to administration and wear clean gloves during administration.

Immediately after the last milking at drying off, prior to treatment with TEATSEAL, the udder

should be stripped and each teat thoroughly cleaned with a suitable disinfectant.

After infusion, do not massage or squeeze the teat as this may dislodge the seal.

1. Hygiene: Ensure animals are appropriately restrained in hygienic conditions. Keep

syringes clean and DO NOT immerse in water.

2. Clean and dry: The teats should be clean and dry prior to disinfection. If the teats are not

clean, wash and dry prior to disinfection.

3. Disinfection Technique: Wearing gloves, thoroughly scrub teat ends with alcohol

impregnated wipes (one per teat) and leave to air dry. First, disinfect the two teats further

away, then the two closest. Take care to avoid contamination of disinfected teats.

4. Insertion: Ensure teats are dry before insertion. Take care to avoid contamination of

the syringe nozzle. Careful insertion of the TEATSEAL syringe nozzle with minimum

penetration into the teat canal is recommended.

Insert TEATSEAL into the teats in the opposite order to disinfection. i.e. closest two teats

first, then the two furthest away. While administering, gently close off the top of product to

remain in the teat cistern and canal, rather than in the udder. Do not massage the teat or

udder after insertion of TEATSEAL.

5. Teat Spray: After treating each cow, spray teat with your normal teat sanitiser, and mark

treated cows with spray mark, raddle or similar.

Administering TEATSEAL

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Vapour levels of 5,000 to 10,000 ppm will irritate the mouth, throat, nose

and respiratory system. Inhalation may lead to coughing, intoxication,

nausea, dizziness, initial mental excitement, drowsiness, stupor and coma.

Inhalation

Bitter taste. Can cause intoxication, flushing, mental excitement, central

nervous system depression, headache, nausea, dizziness, incoordination,

impaired judgement, dullness, stupor and coma. Estimated fatal dose for pure

ethanol is 60 to 150 mL.

Ingestion

Will dry out the skin, which may lead to redness and irritation. Reported to

be absorbed through damaged skin, leading to similar symptoms as when

swallowed.

Skin

Liquid is a severe irritant. Vapour levels of 5,000 ppm will cause

irritation and tearing.

Eye

Chronic exposure to vapour may result in headache and symptoms of central

nervous system depression. Absorbed into the body by inhalation and

ingestion. Excessive acute absorption may cause central nervous system

depression. Excessice chronic absorption may result in liver injury.

Excessive ingestions can lead to alcoholism. Ethanol is generally regarded

as one of the safest industrial solvents. Although it possesses narcotic

properties, vapour concentrations sufficient to produce this effect are

raely, if ever, reached in industry. The systemic effect of ethanol differs

from that of methanol in that ethanol (in low dosages) is rapidly oxidised

in the body to carbon dioxide and water and in contrast to methanol, it does

not cause immediate and permanent (cumulative) damage to the central (optic)

nervous systems.

SECTION 11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Swallowed

Minor quantities may cause minor throat irritation and vomiting. Large quantities may cause stomach pains,

cramps, nausea, vomiting and narcotic effects ( drowsiness and may lead to coma and death ).

Eye

The vapour is irritating to the eyes at concentrations above 400ppm. Direct eye contact with the product may

Cause eye irritation, including pain and redness.

Skin

Brief exposure to vapour and liquid are not irritating but prolonged contact ( eg clothing saturated with the

Product ) can be irritating.

Inhaled

Mild irritation to the nose, throat and upper respiratory tract can occur at concentrations above 400ppm. Higher

Concentrations can cause drowsiness, headaches, intoxication and unconsciousness.

Acute Effects – Acute Toxicity

LD50/oral/rat 4396 mg/kg ( isopropanol )

LD50/dermal/rat 12870 mg/kg ( isopropanol )

Long Term Effects Chronic

Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in dermatitis due to de-fatting. Some animal Iso Propanol exposure

studies have noted increased liver and kidney weights in exposed animals but no observable relevant pathology.

With particular relevance to the liver, this weight change may be considered to be more of a metabolic response

rather than a toxic effect of the alcohol. Occupational exposure to Iso Propanol has not been reported as causing

long term effects.
