Banamine brand of flunixin meglumine is the pioneer injectable nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug approved for cattle and horses in the United States. Banamine reduces the fever and lung inflammation that typically accompany bovine respiratory disease (BRD). With Banamine as part of a BRD treatment program, cattle feel better fast. Cattle pulled for BRD and treated with Banamine (flunixin meglumine) in addition to an antibiotic visited the feed bunk more frequently (P < 0.10), spent more time at the feed bunk (P < 0.05), and had significantly reduced rectal temperature during a 12-hour period post-treatment than cattle treated with an antibiotic alone. They also have reduced lung inflammation and fewer lung lesions than cattle treated with conventional therapies.
