Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica enterisol salmonella T/C is a safe, effective, convenient, one-dose salmonella choleraesuis-typhimurium vaccine. It is administered by drinking water or oral drench and is approved for use in pigs as young as 2 weeks of age. The vaccine provides rapid onset of immunity after administration. Enterisol salmonella T/C is available in lyophilized (freeze-dried) or frozen formulations. Oral delivery of the vaccine results in less stress for pigs and greater convenience for workers by eliminating the need for injections. Oral vaccination through the drinking water may also improve worker safety and pork quality. Salmonella choleraesuis is more invasive and can result in septicemia, broncho pneumonia and death. Although there are no food safety concerns with salmonella choleraesuis, it is more devastating in terms of mortality and lost production. Salmonella typhimurium infection is more localized. It causes diarrhea that can lead to dehydration and reduced performance. Because salmonella typhimurium poses a food safety risk to humans, producers should be especially vigilant in preventing this disease. Extensive field and research studies by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica have documented the vaccine’s effectiveness against both types of salmonella.
