Hi

The pharma tecnical people say that it´s important to warm the bottles before start to inoculate the vaccine to prevent allergic reactions, but really someone saw that?

    Vaccines should be stored and injected at the specified temperature and as to allergic reactions its something I've rarely seen unless things have changed alot in the last 5 years.

    I have seen an allergic reaction to a vaccine some years ago. Lost the sow some 6 weeks later. She was being fed Molasses and wafrm water to make it liquid through a drench gun normally used for sheep.(gaive her some nourishment. She was not eating any thing else. She was being given naprosin tables (3) daily for memory in consultation with a vet of course. day and night contact. It was so distressing. She had piglets on her and she was my first girl I was so sad. but it certainly was a learning curve for me. She continue to feed the piglets and just got them large enough to wean. around 2 1/2 weeks. Had nothing else I could put them on so took over after she passed.

    no not new, been using it for now 3 yrs

    Had to get Dr. Hendrick's phone number in Ohio to get baby shots this time around. I was able to get Coke her perfarrowing shots with the rhini shield tx4 but could not follow it up with the litter like we use to do.

    I'm hoping like all get out that it will be back on the market for April. I hoping Amy is settled and will give our son a nice show pig to show for 2014.
