A calf’s health in early life is critical to proper growth and development. It’s also the period of greatest stress. Calves are prime candidates for disease problems, particularly scours and pneumonia. Both are common and costly calfhood diseases. Merrick’s Super Guard products are effective herd management tools to aid in the treatment of bacterial enteritis and bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever complex).
Both Super Guard and Super Guard Plus are formulated to provide the maximum allowable dosage of Neomycin and Oxytetracycline. Neomycin is primarily effective against bacteria. Oxytetracycline is absorbed into the bloodstream as well as being active within the intestinal tract. This proven broad spectrum antibiotic combination is used for the treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by E. coli susceptible to Oxytetracycline, treatment and control of colibacillosis (bacterial enteritis) caused by E. coli susceptible to Neomycin, and bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever complex) caused by Pasteurella multocida susceptible to Oxytetracycline.
Super Guard Plus contains the regular formulation with the added benefits of Direct Fed Microbials to support healthy intestinal microflora, Kaolin to help firm the stool and adsorb toxins and high levels of vitamins A, D3 and E to support optimal growth and development. Vitamin E is especially beneficial during periods of stress.
