  • Suitable for use in cattle

RECOMMENDED FOR

  • For the treatment of botulism in cattle in areas of phosphorus deficiency that can promote bone chewing by cattle leading to botulism

  • Decaying feed – clostridium botulinum can grow in any decaying organic matter, not just animal carcasses

WHY CHOOSE SINGVAC 3 YEAR VACCINE?

  • Prevent botulism types C & D
    Botulism is a severe and fatal disease of cattle. It is caused by a toxin produced by the bacterium Cl. botulinum. Uncontrolled it may cause significant annual losses, and in outbreaks losses may be 25% or more of the herd1. The disease is especially common in phosphorous and protein deficient areas across northern Australia, but outbreaks can also occur in grazing cattle in southern Australia, as well as in dairies and feedlots.
  • Single dose 
    Traditional botulism vaccines containing aluminium salt adjuvants require two doses administered several weeks apart to stimulate a protective immune response. SINGVAC 3 YEAR VACCINE is formulated in a water-in-oil in-water emulsion that enables a protective immune response against Cl. botulinum types C & D with just a single dose.
  • Unique Water in oil in water adjuvant technology 
    This unique technology means SINGVAC can protect more of your cattle for longer through it’s two stage process that allows for a stronger immune response compared to traditional vaccines that are suspended in a n aluminium salt adjuvant.
  • Real world trialled and tested 
    SINGVAC has been tested and trialled in the harshest conditions and has continuously come out on top in all comparative trials and surveys.
  • Rapid onset of immunity 
    In previously unvaccinated animals, SINGVAC 3 YEAR VACCINE will generate protective levels of circulating antibodies against Cl. botulinum types C & D within 35 days of vaccination.
  • Only treat every three years 
    Treating bulls and breeding cows less frequently means significant savings in vaccine purchases and labour and reduces stress on cattle due to reduced handling.
