Elanco issues cattle treatment toxicity alert

Vets urged to advise farmers of the risks to non-target species from the Kexxtone device.

Vets have been urged to warn farmers about the risk of monensin toxicity connected to a cattle treatment product in a new communication from animal health firm Elanco.

The company said: “Elanco would like to remind vets when dispensing Kexxtone 32.4g continuous release intraruminal device for cattle to inform the farmer that if ingested it is toxic to non-target species (dogs, horses, other equines and guinea fowl).

“All boluses should be stored safely on farm so access to dogs is not allowed. Any boluses that are found post-administration on farm should be picked up and disposed of appropriately.”
