FEATURES / BENEFITS
Safety and Efficacy: No adverse reactions to LITTERGUARD® LT-C were reported in experimental tests, or in clinical trials conducted by independent veterinarians.
Efficacy of LITTERGUARD® LT-C was demonstrated in challenge-of-immunity tests involving pregnant sows and gilts and their litters.
Newborn pigs from vaccinated dams experienced significantly lower incidence and severity of neonatal diarrhea than newborn pigs from nonvaccinated dams.
No immunologic interference was demonstrated among the various fractions of LITTERGUARD® LT-C.
LITTERGUARD® LT-C protects pigs by means of maternally derived antibodies present in colostrum and milk of vaccinated dams. Newborn pigs' adequate and timely consumption of the colostrum and milk is therefore essential for protection.
