Project Number: 5442-32000-014-11
Start Date: Sep 01, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2015
A residue depletion study will be conducted in twenty normal and endotoxin-treated dairy cattle dosed intramuscularly (off-label) or intravenously (label use) with flunixin meglumine. Animals will be dosed with flunixin for three consecutive days with blood, milk, saliva, and urine samples being serially removed for flunixin analysis. Ninety-six hours after the last flunixin administration, cows will be euthanized and edible and non-edible tissues will be collected for the determination of flunixin tissue concentrations.
