Similar to the prescription requirement for injectable products, the Food and Drug Administration requires a veterinarian to issue a Veterinary Feed Directive for the use of Pulmotil to help ensure veterinarian oversight and judicious use of Pulmotil according to the label use and feeding directions. “Implementing these products together will give producers more options and allow them to feed one ration that contains both Rumensin and Pulmotil,” said Carl Guthrie, DVM and Elanco beef technical director.
