Published on: Dec 30, 2013

Norbrook Laboratories Ltd. announced that following the Food & Drug Administration's denial of a citizen petition filed by Bayer Animal Health, FDA has re-instated in full its prior approval of the sale and use of Norbrook's new Enroflox 100 (enrofloxacin) in cattle and non-lactating dairy heifers less than 20 months of age. New Enroflox 100 is approved for the treatment of bovine respiratory disease (BRD) associated with Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, and Histophilus somnus in beef and non-lactating dairy cattle.

Norbrook, a global veterinary pharmaceutical company, said the new BRD treatment antibiotic has the same active ingredient and formulation as Baytril 100 (enrofloxacin) and is approved in cattle for multi-day use only.

Enroflox 100 will be available from veterinarians in 100 mL and 250 mL bottles to fit any size operation.
