In this experimental study, the florfenicol and meloxicam combination (Zeleris®) was found to be highly effective for the treatment of BRD (cure rate = 100%). Calves treated with this new combination were moreover at lower risk for clinical relapse and presented a higher bodyweight gain compared to calves receiving the florfenicol and flunixin meglumine combination. These results are in line with the pharmacokinetic properties of florfenicol and meloxicam.
