Vaccine proven to reduce the spread of trichomoniasis
TRICHGUARD is the first vaccine licensed to reduce shedding of Tritrichomonas foetus organisms, and thus helps protect against the spread of trichomoniasis in cattle, a venereal disease spread by bulls that can lead to lost pregnancies and open cows. By making TRICHGUARD a part of your vaccination regimen, you are reducing the impact of Tritrichomonas foetus.
Proven protection to reduce the spread of trichomoniasis
Available in combination with Campylobacter fetus (vibrio) and 5-way leptospirosis
TRICHGUARD helps reduce shedding of T. foetus organisms, thereby helping to reduce the spread of infection throughout the herd.
TRICHGUARD V5L HB aids in the reduction of shedding of T. foetus, plus it provides proven protection against disease caused by Campylobacter fetus (vibrio) and five serovars of Leptospira.
This product has also been shown to be effective against urinary shedding of L. borgpetersenii serovar hardjo (type hardjo-bovis) in heifers 10 months of age or older.
TRICHGUARD vaccine is effective in significantly increasing pregnancy and calving rates and reducing losses associated with T. foetus infections.1 Vaccination resulted in heifers achieving higher pregnancy rates when compared with sham vaccinated heifers.1
TRICH VIBRIO™ vaccine is effective against sexually transmitted diseases caused by Trichomonas foetus, Campylobacter fetus, as well as the shedding of Trichomonas foetus.
