Clostridium botulinum Type B Toxoid Neogen®Vet BotVax® B is a USDA-approved vaccine for the prevention of equine botulism Type B due to Clostridium botulinum in healthy horses.

Clostridium botulinum Type B

  • Accounts for more than 85% of equine botulism cases.1
  • Strikes both foals and adult horses.
  • Symptoms can progress quickly and are usually rapidly fatal.
  • Its spores remain viable in the soil for years.

Risk Factors

  • Any baled hay (round, square, big or small), haylage, or silage products.
  • Horses or foals that reside in or travel to endemic areas.
  • Horses that travel for shows, races, and other equine events.
  • Horses that may sustain a wound, including injection site abscesses, umbilical infections, puncture wounds, and castration sites.

Prevention is your best defense!

  • Horses are extremely sensitive to botulinum toxins.
  • Timely treatment is critical due to botulism's rapid and severe progression.
  • Vaccination is far less expensive than treatment, which can exceed $10,000 with no guarantee of survival.

Warning: Transitory local reactions at the injection site such as heat and minor swelling may occur. Anaphylactoid reactions may occur. Epinephrine is antidotal.

Brand Neogen®Vet
