Who vaccinates?

And if you do what do you vaccinate for and where do you get vaccine?

Re: Who vaccinates?

I vaxx only for ILT and it can be obtained from a vet in Guelph. This is the non shedding type.

Re: Who vaccinates?

Do not vaccinate my poultry. Try to keep a closed flock.

Vaccinate against ILT using the non-shedding LT-IVAX vaccine made by Merck. I get a flat from my vet and split it with friends.

Re: Who vaccinates?

Does that vaccine need to be kept in liquid nitrogen? How do you handle it?

Re: Who vaccinates?

You can't freeze it, but it must stay cool.  I pick it up in a cooler and store it in my fridge.

Re: Who vaccinates?

We do not vaccinate our own, as it would defeat the purpose of having "clean" meat. But am willing to vaccinate on request for young birds we are selling.
Question can I pick some up in the Edmonton area? Would be no different than getting canine vaccinations;0)
