New thinking about coliform mastitis treatment

Myth: Antibiotic treatment is not effective against Gram-negative mastitis.
Reality: A new study from Cornell University reveals mild and moderate cases of Gram-negative mastitis are indeed treatable and might not cure without treatment. Ynte Schukken, DVM, Cornell University, and Roger Saltman, DVM, Pfizer Animal Health, discuss the study and how it may change treatment protocols.
