Question Cows with mastitis
See the post (link below)
Use the search feature (tab up the top of the page on the right) it will answer many enquiries.
I saved a Highland cow (search for neula) with mastitis earlier this year with oral mms and then switched to a mix of mms / cds orally. I believe the right side quarters are lost but she survived and nursed a calf to good health on the left - that loss would still be a disaster for a dairy cow.
Search user drgreen - he is presently saving a dairy calf with scours with CDI (that’s basically cds produced in saline solution). I've no experience with injections - but I wouldn't think injecting mms would not be good (acidic) - but CDI appears to be extremely effective - and results are rapid
As far as I know you'll be breaking new ground.
Please keep us posted, as you can see from the post I linked for you, the user never updated progress - so all we know is - she tried.
Appreciate any feedback.
We are patiently waiting for user "drgreen" to elaborate on the CDI inject-able protocol he used on Calvin. Calvin was dieing with scours and was saved - rapidly. So CDI injections appear to be the best therapy - if you can access / confine the animal .

Only probem is, I would suggest giving it IV which may be a problem for some cattlemen. It can be given IM, but it often causes a tremedous amount of stinging in the muscle tissue when given that route.
Dilute HCL was first give to cattle back in the 1930s. In Dr. Burr Ferguson's text, Facts and Phagocytes, he writes of a herd he treated with abortive mastitis:
"This was a series of 31 cases and each cow with the udder infection was given 100-125cc of Hydrochloric acid iv at 1:200. Three of the well advanced cases went on with the infection in spite of HCL and were destroyed. The others after 3-4 injections of acid showed such decreases in bacterial counts in the milk that they were again put back into dairy service".
