What You Should Know About Tetanus:

  • Tetanus grows in dead tissue; oxygen kills it.
  • “Banded” scrotums, dehorning areas, and wounds are all great places for tetanus to grow.
  • Farms with horses are at higher risk, because tetanus bacteria are found in horse manure.

Clostridium Perfringens C&D (Vaccine for Overeating Disease):

  • Protects against the overgrowth of Clostridia bacteria when animals eat too much grain. Overgrowth of Clostridia bacteria causes bloody diarrhea and death in 12-24 hours.
  • This vaccine does not protect animals from the effects of excessive overeating (such as breaking into the feed bin and eating 25 pounds of feed) which causes overwhelming rumen overload.
