Clostridium perfringens
Types C & D-Tetanus Toxoid

Product Information:

Information provided from Anchor product information sheet. L-A730-8/93

Bar-Vac CD/T® is recommended for the immunizations of healthy susceptible sheep, goats and cattle against sudden death syndrome associated with scours, overeating disease (enterotoxemia), and tetanus caused by toxins of Cl. perfringens Types C & D and Cl. tetani.
Bar-Vac CD/T Toxoid is an ideal combination for protection against tetanus in sheep. It especially protects feeder lambs from tetanus contamination after processing procedures such as docking and castration when they are most likely to come into contact with the bacteria.
Bar-Vac CD/T Toxoid also assures optimal protection in cattle against tetanus resulting from de-horning, castration, or wounds associated with fighting, wire punctures, and cable cuts. Anchor's improved toxoids are produced in a fermentation and ultra-filtration process which results in a purified, toxoid product. Anchor's toxoids are several times more potent and more efficient in stimulating antigenic response than bacterin-toxoids which contain unnecessary bacterial cells. In addition, Anchor toxoids also contain an alum adjuvant.
An annual booster is recommended in late pregnancy. Vaccination of pregnant dams is an important way to also protect the nursing young. The dam's colostrum transfers a rich supply of protective antibodies and antitoxins to the newborn animal, thereby protecting it until it is old enough to vaccinate.
