Transdermal Patch for Mastitis Treatment

Would the dairy cow industry be open to a transdermal patch that will have the ability to deliver antibiotics to the udder especially for mastitis? The patch would be a slow release patch placed on the udder that would deliver antibiotics over a 5-7 day period directly to the compromised compartment. The patch would be able to withstand the harsh environment, extreme temperature and the possibility of a cow trying to lick the patch off. The patch would be non- toxic to human and animal and would not have to be refrigerated. The patch would be cost competitive to support both the veterinarian and the farmer. The patch would be able to adhere and deliver to both hair and hairless udders without adverse reactions.

Fever is often gone by 24 hours, the pain within 24 to 72 hours and the breast lump disappears over the next 5 to 7 days. Occasionally, the lump takes longer than 7 days to disappear completely, but as long as it's getting small, this is a good thing.
