Abstract

Remote delivery devices (ROD, aka dart guns) are used to administer antimicrobials (AM) to cattle in situations when individual treatment by manual injection is logistically difficult. However, it is not clear whether the pharmacokinetics (PK) of AM administered by remote delivery device is comparable to that for AM administered by injection; thus it is not certain that cattle treated by ROD experience equivalent AM effect.
