He said he never had a vet mention a withdrawal period for banamine, ever, that he remembers.
I think it's important to know that a lot of drugs are used off-label out of practicality and banamine is an example of a drug used that later has changed guidelines. And yes, would be nice if a vet would learn and relay this information.
Instead of shaming farmers, one might have better luck educating and sharing when changes come around. Just a thought, folks might listen better that way.

This was never intended to be shaming farmers - one shouldn't feel shame when vets have not given the correct info and labels. Vets are responsible for communicating the patient, the drug use, frequency and withdrawal - it's law for prescription labels. We shouldn't have to go do all our own research - that's why it's a prescription drug and supposed to be given to us by vets. .. But as this thread had shown, We need to do our own research including on drugs vets prescribe - they are also human and can't keep up on everything either and obviously the drugs are getting out there from vets giving them to us. While it would be great to trust them, they make mistakes and many shrug off many dangerous things as unnecessary also.
My husband training has massive emphasis on responsibility because if volatile residues come back, the vet will be the one who has to prove proper paper trails, proper prescriptions etc. People using things wrong and off label is why he stopped giving out drugs Willie nillie when people asked for bottles on hand, because he had inspectors come back to him asking why commercial producers had drugs they were using wrong.

Here is an example of complicated residues
Flunixin use in dairy cattle ( farad website) Cows with mastitis may require a longer milk withdrawal than the FDA withdrawal time. An NCSU study found that the elimination of flunixin in mastitic cows treated intravenously was slower compared to healthy cows leading to violative milk residues in mastitic cows beyond the FDA withdrawal time of 36 hours. In healthy cows, flunixin residues were not detected in milk after 24 hours of dosing. Cows producing less than 20 kg/day milk had an altered flunixin clearance which may be another contributing factor to persistent residues. Residues are even longer when treated with extralabel routes including IM and SC administration.
So your cow has mastitis, is a low producer and you have im instead of iv? You could have 4x the withdrawal requirements. Even done in iv with mastitis, 1/3 rd of cows still had high levels in milk at 60+ hours which is well beyond withdrawals. I wish it wasn't so complicated
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
