Show exhibit to focus on disease prevention
The new option of using an injectable antibiotic to prevent as well as
treat respiratory disease will be featured by Pfizer Animal Health on their
stand at the British Pig and Poultry Fair, Stoneleigh, 13-14
The long-acting, single-dose product Draxxin â€” Europe's most popular
injectable brand against swine respiratory disease, according to the company â€”
can now be used for treating groups of pigs when they are most at risk.
â€œProducers using Draxxin are finding it far more effective than using water
or feed medication,â€ says Emmeline RandallPfizer product manager. â€œIt is well
established that sick pigs don't eat or drink normally and so the dose they
receive is not predictable.â€
The stand will also feature Pfizer's other mainline pig products â€” the
antibiotic Naxcel and the vaccine Stellamune Once for early and life-long
protection from enzootic pneumonia.
There will also be the opportunity for visitors to enter the 2008 Pfizer
Trainee of the Year Awards offering prizes worth more than Â£2500. Full details
