Armor™ Antiseptic Iodine Barrier

Armor is the first iodine barrier teat dip that meets all standards required by the Veterinary Drug Directorate at Health Canada.

 

Armor mastitis protection system

Armor acts as a lethal shield of protection fighting against mastitis-causing organisms. A “total” protection system, Armor kills bacteria on contact, contains excellent skin conditioning qualities, forms a long-lasting protective shield around the teat and reactivates if moistened for continued protection against a broad spectrum of mastitis-causing organisms.

The economics

The total cost of mastitis can range from $200 to $300 per cow per year. Managing mastitis infections demands a systematic approach to controlling the variables. Controlling the cow’s environment, managing pre- and post-milking procedures and maintaining clean and conditioned teats are critical to herd health and higher profits. Every $1 spent on mastitis control returns $5 in additional income (International Dairy Federation). Let Armor be the shield that protects your herd against the lethal effects of mastitis.

Research

Armor antiseptic iodine barrier teat dip is proven to reduce new intramammary infections by an average of greater than 85% versus no teat dip in experimental challenge testing consistent with procedures outlined by the NMC.

In addition, Armor was highly effective in several field trials on dairies. These results confirm how the barrier protection of Armor kills key environmental and contagious mastitis-causing organisms on contact.
