  • Toxoplasmosis vaccination for goats
    Book your vaccination in October – visit end of November.

    TOXOPLASMOSIS:
    One of the major infectious causes of abortion in goats
    - Early pregnancy – early embryonic death; no abortion or visible signs
    - Mid-pregnancy – foetal death and abortion; dead kids may be found on the ground
    - Late pregnancy – stillborn kids or weak kids that fail to thrive

    Easily preventable with a one-off vaccination

    All breeding females should receive 1 vaccination in their life time, preferably before their first mating

    Toxoplasmisis is spread by oocysts from (feral) cats

    From a country-wide study on sheep properties, 100% of all properties have exposure to Toxoplasmosis gondii

    Booking your vaccinations through us is the most economical option for you, because:
    - You pay only for the exact number of doses you need, instead of full packs
    - Vaccination-runs reduce mileage fees for you
    - High level of vaccine care ensures vaccine efficacy
    - Vaccination technique we use prevents spreading CAE among animals.

    Book in September, visit in November
    When booking give the most accurate number of animals to be vaccinated and give address of location of animals.

    Why should you book this far in advance?
    - The vaccine needs to be administered at least 6 weeks prior to mating
    - The product needs to be ordered 4-8 weeks in advance
    - The product has a very short shelf life; we need to book all vaccinations in as short a period as possible
