This system prevents and treats mastitis in cattle without using antibiotics.
Mastitis in dairy cows is one of the most widespread and common cattle diseases. Mastitis is the cause for billions of Euros in damage costs per year in the dairy industry.
As of today, antibiotics treatment is the only possible solution for mastitis caused by bacteria. Use of antibiotics for curing mastitis, increases antibiotics residue in milk. Cows treated with antibiotics rarely get back to the level of milk production they had before the disease. Massive usage of antibiotics also creates bacteria mutations that are resistant to antibiotics.
Heal Mastitis fights mastitis pathogens, bacterial or viral, in dairy cows without antibiotics.
