New product is the first injectable source of vitamin B12 and phosphorus.

Bayer Animal Health has released Catosal (10% Butaphosphan+cyanocobalamin) Sterile Solution, the first and only injectable source of vitamin B12 and phosphorus for prevention or treatment of those nutritional deficiencies in cattle, swine, horses and poultry. Catosal provides an important adjunct therapy for animals that are convalescing or susceptible to behavioral or environmental stress. The onset of stress causes the hormone cortisol to be released into the bloodstream, which can impair an immune response, resulting in loss of appetite, increased susceptibility to disease and reduced growth rate. Catosal prevents and treats B12 or phosphorus deficiencies that are associated with delayed recovery. “Catosal is a great supportive therapy for sick animals and an excellent preventative care measure for healthy animals subjected to suppressed feed intakes or stress,” says Todd Firkins, livestock category manager for Bayer Animal Health. Catosal is available only by prescription from a veterinarian. “For years, Catosal has proven its efficacy worldwide,” says Jim Sears, senior technical services veterinarian for Bayer Animal Health. “Now, U.S. veterinarians will also have access to this important therapy for the prevention and treatment of phosphorus and vitamin B12 deficiencies.” For more information, call (800) 422-9874 or visit www.bayerDVM.com.

Livestock Medicator

Dosatron International Inc. has introduced the DM11F medicator for the livestock market. The DM11F's patent-pending technology works unlike any other Dosatron, making it ideal for low flow, hard water and water treatment applications. Its superior performance in low-flow applications enables users to medicate animals as young as 1 day old; the maximum flow rate of 11 gal./min. allows animals to be treated as they grow. The DM11F uses a completely redesigned hydraulic motor that is piston-free, allowing the medicator to work in adverse environments or in cases of high mineral content in the water. The medicator also features a highly chemical-resistant housing that permits use of a wide range of chemicals. For more information, click on www.dosatronusa.com.
