Vaccine for Footrot (Fusobacterium necrophorum) labeled for use in Cattle. Footrot is an infectious disease that causes swelling and lameness in one or more feet. The bacteria that causes footrot (Fusobacterium necrophorum) cannot penetrate healthy intact skin, but can take advantage of abrasions or puncture wounds in or near the feet. Whether on pasture or in confinement, cattle constantly encounter risk factors such as stones, frozen or dried mud, stubble or wet pens that can cause or worsen an abrasion or wound.
Fusogard® bacterin, the first F. necrophorum bacterin developed and manufactured specifically for cattle, was designed with economics, convenience, beef quality assurance and solid disease protection in mind. Fusogard provides the protection and safety of an inactivated bacterin while delivering effective, economical footrot protection.
Fusogard is cost-effective, both in preventing the economic losses that come with footrot and lameness, and in eliminating the use of costly antibiotics to treat footrot.
