This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy horses, cattle, sheep, goats and swine against tetanus.
This product was licensed prior to the requirement to establish a minimum age for use. The duration of immunity is unknown. Tetanus
Toxoid is prepared by detoxifying tetanus toxin in such a manner as to allow the antigenic properties to remain intact. Each serial
is tested for purity, safety and potency in accordance with USDA requirements. Tetanus is caused by a neurotoxin produced by growth
of Clostridium tetani, an anaerobic (lives without air) micro organism, in necrotic tissue. Affected animals become stiff, have
difficulty swallowing and have an increased pulse rate. Breathing is labored. Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur,
such as contracting muscles of the jaw. Thus, the term 'lockjaw' is often used. Legs and tail are often stiff with abdominal
muscles contracted. Tetanus stricken animals may be unusually sensitive to light and heat. Temperature of the animal generally
remains normal, elevating only shortly before death. Protective anti-body levels usually occur about 2 weeks after the second
injection of the primary immunization Series. In contrast, administration of Tetanus Anti-toxin is recommended for immediate,
emergency, passive treatment of exposed animals with unknown vaccination history or with signs of tetanus infection. Refer to
product circular for Tetanus Anti-toxin for full information and consult with a veterinarian.
