Texas Vet Lab Inc. offers CL vaccine for goats
Dr. Dave Sparks will have a complete report on the CL vaccine in his column in the July Goat Rancher
The following announcement has been posted on the Texas Vet Lab Inc. website:
"Texas Vet Lab, Inc., is excited to announce the launch of a new vaccine,
Corynebacterium Pseudotuberculosis Bacterin. This first-to-market
conditionally licensed product provides veterinarians and producers an
important tool to help protect the Caprine/goat population from
Corynebacterium Pseudotuberculosis, a bacterial disease that is the cause of
Caseous Lymphadenitis (C.L.) in goats. Without a commercially available
vaccine as a practical management tool, goat producers have had few options
to prevent the spread of this disease.
"Texas Vet Lab will begin accepting orders May 14, 2012. This product is
launching with a conditional license that will be regulated by each state's
veterinary agency. Distribution in each state shall be limited to
authorized recipients designated by proper state officials-under such
additional conditions as these authorities may require."
