BotVax B, 10 mL
Botulinum toxins are among the most deadly toxins in the world. Horses are extremely sensitive compared to other species. Vaccinating for prevention is far less expensive than treatment, which can exceed $10,000 in vet costs with no guarantee of survival. Clostridium botulinum type B strikes both foals and adult horses and symptoms can progress quickly and are usually rapidly fatal.
BotVax B is the only USDA approved monovalent vaccine (toxoid) for the prevention of equine botulism Type B due to Clostridium botulinum in healthy horses. Clostridium botulinum type B accounts for more than 85% of equine botulism cases. (Note: This product does not confer protection against other C. botulinum toxin types.)
Dosing: Inject 2 mL intramuscularly at monthly intervals for a total of 3 doses. Booster annually with a 2 mL dose.

"A must to add to your vaccination program!"
After losing a beloved mare and her unborn foal to botulism on Christmas Eve, 2017, I will never again have a horse not vaccinated for botulism. I live in Ocala, Florida where vets will tell you they never see botulism, but it happened to me and you NEVER want to see your horse die from this horrid disease. My mare was not on a round bale either we don’t know where it came from, but had she received Bot Vax she and her colt would most likely be here. I have since vaccinated over 20 horses of all ages with Bot Vax and not one single reaction! Please buy this vaccine and vaccinate for botulism!
