UdderLife™ OptiShield™ teat sealant is a sterile, antibiotic-free, off-white smooth paste that aids in the prevention of new intramammary infections throughout the dry period by providing a malleable barrier in the teat canal. The product contains 65% bismuth subnitrate in a mineral oil base. It is recommended to use this teat sealant as an additional protocol to current antibiotic dry cow therapy. While it does not treat clinical or subclinical cases of mastitis already present in a dry cow's mammary system, it works to help prevent new cases.
The UdderLife™ OptiShield™ teat sealant tube contains minimal air, forming a solid plug seal in the streak canal. The tube also features a partial insertion tip which allows for consistent application and less employee error of placing the tip too far inside the teat.
The only teat sealant made in the USA, producers don't have to worry about waiting on back-ordered product.
UdderLife™ OptiShield™ teat sealant comes in a 4g tube. There are 144 tubes per pail, providing teat sealant for 36 cows.
