MSD Animal Health - NYSE:MRK

GLOBAL - Merck Animal Health are releasing the broad-spectrum clostridial disease vaccine for sheep and cattle, Bravoxin 10, in a new six times 100ml farm vaccination pack.

The cost-effective farm pack contains enough vaccine for 600 sheep or 300 cattle boosters.

Purchasers of the new farm pack will also get a free vaccine applicator worth £20. The new Bravoxin 10 applicator benefits from the sterimatic system, which protects and sterilises the vaccination needle with each injection. It can also be placed down between doses without risk of needle damage, self-injection or needing to remove the vaccine bottle.

Bravoxin 10 protects both cattle and sheep from clostridial diseases like blackleg and black disease, as well as other conditions caused by clostridial bacteria that usually kill the animal once infection has become established.

The vaccine protects against disease caused by the 10 main clostridial bacteria; C. perfringens type A, C.perfringens type B, C.perfringens type C, C.perfringens type D, C.novyi type B, C.septicum, C.tetani, C.sordellii, C.haemolyticum and C.chauvoei.

The new vaccine farm pack is available from veterinary practices and animal health product trade outlets.
