BotVax B, 2 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.
