Intra Hoof-fit Gel Is The World's Only Antibiotic Free Treatment For Digital Dermatitis:
Intra Hoof-fit Gel has received official registration from the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), becoming the world's first antibiotic free treatment for Digital Dermatitis (Mortellaro Disease). UK VM registration number 41870/4000
The revolutionary hoof gel is both effective and sustainable. Official tests by the Dutch Animal Health Centre proved that Hoof-fit Gel is 1.57 times more effective at treating the disease than the antibiotic CTC spray.
Whilst other official treatments are available, the only alternatives are antibiotics and can only be obtained via prescription from a veterinary surgeon. Here lies a major advantage of Intra Hoof fit Gel; since it is antibiotic free, it can easily be purchased and applied as necessary based solely on a farmer's judgement. Additionally there is no required withdrawal time for milk, so productivity need not be effected.
Since Hoof-fit Gel is now a registered treatment, no alternative off-label products, such as Linco Spectin, should be used to treat Digital Dermatitis, according to the Cascade system.
The economic loss to farmers due to hoof ailments is often underestimated. Each case of digital dermatitis or claw ailment results in suffering of the afflicted animal and unwelcomed costs to producers.
Unfortunately for our farmers, many popular methods of treating digital dermatitis and other simialr aliments are problematic and outdated. Formalin is a known carcinogen; a cancer causing substance, that can be harmful to animals, humans and the environment.
Commonly used antibiotics also present a number of drawbacks. Many livestock farmers are facing problems with resistance, as antibiotics are becoming less effective in treating both animals and people. There are now calls for the reduction of antibiotics used in farm animals.
The development of a serious alternative with the same or even better efficacy enables such a reduction in the use of antibiotics. Now, it seems, is the time to embrace this effective modern product, which is opening the door for a new generation of hoof care management.
Effective alternatives: The Intra Hoof-fit Concept
Finding alternatives to antibiotics in farming has always been a focus of Intracare, the Dutch company behind this new generation of hoof care products.
The antibiotic -free range of Intra Hoof-fit products allow hoof problems to be managed in a more effective, healthier and sustainable way. All have been developed in close cooperation with dairy farmers, veterinarians, hoof-trimmers and cattle specialists and have been thoroughly field tested.
Not only is Hoof-fit antibiotic free, it can actually be more effective than the antibiotics that many have come to rely on and avoids the risk of resistance build-up. Official tests by the Dutch animal Health Centre proved that Intra Hoof-fit Gel is 1.57 times more effective than the antibiotic CTC spray.
Tens of thousands of livestock farmers in over 60 countries use the Intra Hoof-fit concept every day, which speaks volumes in itself. The Intra Hoof-fit concept reduces the level of infection and allows farmers to benefit from higher milk yields, better resistance, less premature disposal, short intervals between calving, lower drugs bills, no weight loss and in general a healthier herd.
