    I've heard great things about this stuff but I am having trouble finding it. I found it on one website but it looks like they only sold it in large amounts - like for what a dairy would need.

    Also - in looking around at dairy supplies, I keep seeing these teat inflators or dialators. What are these for? It looks as though they stay in the teat? Hmm?

    Here is the address willow girl gave me once..

    http://www.northstarcooperative.com...s/uddermint.htm

    If you look down on the price list, they sell 50mm for 27.50 and they say that is enough for 60-70 applications. Hope that helps.

    I don't know what teat inflators or dilators are used for. I know there is a teat infusion that gets inserted when mastitis is really full blown.

    Thanks Christina, I have been trying to find that address. :)

    I've been having a problem with a pinched nerve in my back, been putting Uddermint on it and whaddaya know .... dayum that stuff is good! :D

    We have those teat dilators on the vet shelf at work but I don't know what they're for, either! I've never seen them used for anything. :confused:
