LitterGuard LT-C is for the vaccination of healthy, pregnant swine as an aid in passive maternal immunisation of their piglets against neonatal diarrhoea caused by (1) beta toxin produced by Clostridium perfringens Type C, and (2) enterotoxigenic strains of Escherichia coli producing heat labile toxin or having the K88, K99, 987P or F41 adherence factors. The bacterin-toxoid is a preparation of chemically inactivated strains of E. coli and Cl. Perfringens Type C beta toxoid.
LitterGuard LT-C protects pigs by means of maternally derived antibodies present in colostrums and milk of vaccinated dams. Newborn piglets` adequate and timely consumption of colostrums and milk is therefore essential for protection.
