WHY CHOOSE WEBSTERS LOW VOLUME BIVALENT BOTULINUM VACCINE?

  • Prevents botulism types C & D 
    Botulism is a severe and fatal disease of sheep and cattle. It is caused by a toxin produced by the bacterium Cl. botulinum. Uncontrolled in cattle, it may cause significant annual losses, and in outbreaks losses may be 25% or more of the herd1. Vaccination is the only practical way to prevent botulism. 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.
  • Rapid onset of immunity
    Immunity develops within 14 days of vaccination.
