New foot spray for sheep and cattle

A FILM-FORMING spray designed to control foot infections in individual cattle and sheep, has been launched by Provita.

Combat contains antiseptic tea tree oil and organic acid in a formulation which dries on the hoof. It is said to form a powerful long-lasting antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic film which attacks foot infections, such as digital dermatitis and foot-rot, and prevents re-infection.

Farm trials have demonstrated Combats ability to control most cases of foot infections, when used in conjunction with footbathing, trimming or paring, says the company.

The product is available in a one litre trigger spray and costs £9.99. (028-8225-2352, fax 028-8224-1734)
