Treatment of mink kits with pre-weaning diarrhea (PWD) can be time-consuming and expensive for the farmer, and the efficacy of the treatment procedure may be questioned. Evidence-based treatment protocols for application on affected animals at farms with outbreaks of PWD are lacking. In Denmark, the dams are sometimes treated with amoxicillin, however, it is unknown if it is passed on to the mink kits via the milk. The aim of the present study was to investigate if amoxicillin is transferred via the milk to the kits after oral (PO) and intramuscular (IM) treatment, respectively, of the dam. Moreover, we estimated the concentrations of amoxicillin continuously in serum from the kits up to 8 h after administration. The concentration of amoxicillin was not affected by the route of administration (P = .64) and serum reached the highest level after 8 h (34 ng/mL, CI = [24.3-47.7]). The serum concentrations of amoxicillin in the mink kits achieved within 8 h were judged too low to exert antimicrobial impact on relevant bacterial species.

The gastrointestinal microbiome is known to play a critical role in animal health but has been relatively poorly characterized in commercial mink, an obligate carnivore. Whether the microbiota can be ...
This study was conducted to determine the passage ratio of amoxicillin into milk and its pharmacokinetics in milk and plasma after intramuscular administration. Five healthy dairy cows (Holstein, weig...
Exosomes participate in cell-to-cell communication, facilitated by the transfer of RNAs, proteins and lipids from donor to recipient cells. Exosomes and their RNA cargos do not exclusively originate f...
Ferret and mink coronaviruses typically cause catarrhal diarrhea in ferrets and minks, respectively. In recent years, however, systemic fatal coronavirus infection has emerged in ferrets, which resemb...
In this study, we aimed to determinate the transfer of lead (Pb) and chromium (Cr) from feed to raw milk in Holstein cows. Solutions of lead acetate and chromium (III) nicotinate were added together a...
The propose of this study is to determine whether a 6-day duration of oral amoxicillin treatment of erysipelas is non-inferior to a 14-day standard duration intravenous then oral amoxicill...
The purpose of this study is to determine if small oral doses of milk protein are safe and effective in decreasing sensitivity to cow's milk in allergic children.
The primary objectives of this study are to assess whether there is transfer of Certolizumab Pegol (CZP) into breast milk of lactating mothers who are receiving an established dosing regim...
Antibiotic resistance is a worldwide problem closely linked to antibiotic consumption. To limit the risk to select resistant bacteria, the rules of prescription are to use high doses and s...

A fixed-ratio combination of amoxicillin trihydrate (see AMOXICILLIN), an aminopenicillin, and potassium clavulanate (see CLAVULANIC ACID), a beta-lactamase inhibitor, used to treat a broad-spectrum of bacterial infections, especially resistant strains.
A slow progressive disease of mink caused by the ALEUTIAN MINK DISEASE VIRUS. It is characterized by poor reproduction, weight loss, autoimmunity, hypergammaglobulinemia, increased susceptibility to bacterial infections, and death from renal failure. The disease occurs in all color types, but mink which are homozygous recessive for the Aleutian gene for light coat color are particularly susceptible.
Carnivores of genus Mustela of the family MUSTELIDAE. The European mink, which has white upper and lower lips, was widely trapped for commercial purposes and is classified as endangered. The American mink, lacking a white upper lip, is farmed commercially.
Allergic reaction to milk (usually cow's milk) or milk products. MILK HYPERSENSITIVITY should be differentiated from LACTOSE INTOLERANCE, an intolerance to milk as a result of congenital deficiency of lactase.
The predominant milk-clotting enzyme from the true stomach or abomasum of the suckling calf. It is secreted as an inactive precursor called prorennin and converted in the acid environment of the stomach to the active enzyme. EC 18.104.22.168.
