Vaccine for Footrot (Fusobacterium necrophorum) labeled for use in Cattle. Footrot is an infectious disease that causes swelling and lameness in one or more feet. The bacteria that causes footrot (Fusobacterium necrophorum) cannot penetrate healthy intact skin, but can take advantage of abrasions or puncture wounds in or near the feet. Whether on pasture or in confinement, cattle constantly encounter risk factors such as stones, frozen or dried mud, stubble or wet pens that can cause or worsen an abrasion or wound.
Fusogard® bacterin, the first F. necrophorum bacterin developed and manufactured specifically for cattle, was designed with economics, convenience, beef quality assurance and solid disease protection in mind. Fusogard provides the protection and safety of an inactivated bacterin while delivering effective, economical footrot protection.Fusogard is a killed vaccine with F. necrophorum bacterin that reduces incidence of footrot and liver abscesses. Vaccinate cattle six months or older with two doses 21 days apart for footrot. For liver abscess concerns in feedlot cattle, administer two doses 60 days apart. Dose is 2 mL subQ. Fusogard is cost-effective, both in preventing the economic losses that come with footrot and lameness, and in eliminating the use of costly antibiotics to treat footrot.
Fusogard® is for use in healthy cattle, 6 months of age or older, as an aid in the reduction of clinical signs of footrot and the number and size of liver abscesses caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum. For footrot revaccinate in 3 weeks. For liver abscesses revaccinate in 60 days. Revaccinate annually or anytime endemic conditions exist, exposure is imminent, or as recommended by your veterinarian. 21 day withdrawal. Supplied as a 10 dose or 50 dose bottle.
