Coopers Piliguard Pinkeye Vaccine is a unique new vaccine to the Australian market - the first commercially available Pinkeye vaccine for cattle in Australia.
A number of micro-organisms can contribute to the establishment of Infectious Bovine Keratoconjunctivitis (IBK), Cattle Pinkeye, or Blight. These may be viral or bacterial (including Mycoplasma spp). The primary infectious agent involved in pinkeye is the bacterium Moraxella bovis, which is carried in the nasal and ocular (eye) secretions of carrier animals. M. bovis attaches to the surface of the eye using pili and damages it by producing toxins and haemolysins which erode the cornea and cause ulceration and severe inflammation. Flies play an important role in physically transferring the infective organism from infected to naive non-infected stock.
Pinkeye is considered to be an economically important disease throughout Australia. A recent Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) report estimates that the disease costs Australian beef farmers $23.5 million annually in lost production and treatment costs.
Coopers PILIGUARD Pinkeye Vaccine
Ultravac 7 in 1 cattle vaccine is used for the routine immunisation of cattle for the prevention of pulpy kidney disease, tetanus, black disease, malignant oedema (blackleg-like disease), blackleg and leptospirosis. The vaccine protects the animal from productivity losses associated with leptospirosis, and prevents the animal from contaminating the environment and placing unvaccinated cattle and people at risk.
