Q: Dr. Domoslai, Below is a link to an article re 'Pregsure' - similar to some of the drugs in the the Pfizer Gold program that we use. Hope the MLV eliminates this problem. Have you had any cases like this?
A: Thanks for the question Peggy. I looked at all the North American data on MLV vaccines and any cases that might look like those bleeding calves from Pregsure vaccinated cows and could find nothing like that. I think that Pfizer has been pretty up front with there product lines and would let us know if there was any risk or if similar cases have been seen in North America. Sounds like an interesting distressing disease and to think that the producers who are trying to protect there cattle and do the right thing inadvertently cause the condition. Take care.
