Re:

Re:


I used to use Cobactan until I came to present job which is on a Tesco contract. We are not allowed to use Cobactan as a 1st choice antibiotic as it is a 3rd generation antibiotic, these are critical for human medicine.
Ubro Yellow or Tetra Delta are 1st choice tubes now.

Tetra delta, although we've had very little mastitis in the last year.

That's hardly the way to look at it.

They are trying to restrict the use of certain anitobotics on animals that are important for humans. That doesn't mean they are the most effective.

You need to take some samples and see what you are dealing with first.

Re:


You should only be using Cobactan if the bacteria are resistant to other tubes and only sensitive the antibiotic in Cobactan.
