Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Pfizer Blackleg Vaccine to Stimulate Immunity Against Blackleg, including answers from our team.
Some of my cattle showed signs of loss of apertite and their back legs started shivering. Within 24hrs they were dead. Is there any vaccine that can be administered to cattle once they shows such signs? Is there any vaccine that can be administered to prevent cattle from contracting the disease?
Cattle which are starting to show signs of disease normally die before there is a chance to treat them. If they receive a large dose of the appropriate type of penicillin at the very first signs of illness, it is possible that they might be saved. The vaccine is not really of use to treat ill animals, but if you vaccinate the entire her periodically when they appear perfectly well, this should provide good levels of immunity and vaccinated cattle are less likely to be affected in future. Your own vet should be able to advise you about this, having knowledge of your local area. Infection comes from the soil and is difficult to eradicate.
