I paid £8.04 for both toxo and enzovax. Only had 20 doses of each though. I did my ewe lambs and shearlings this year so won’t need to do any and waste vaccine next year.

£3.22 for cevac. £4.77 for toxovax. That was for 150 doses of each.
A bit annoying to find I am one of the higher prices on here..
I wonder what other customers at our vets pay, do you think we all get charged the same..

You cant really shop around very easy, its prescription only and the vets will charge you for writing a prescription.

Dropped on some toxovac in stock at a vets that had 3 days left on date (only rang for a price)
Reckoned I got it at cost at £4.50 (50 doses) Cevac was £1.83 from same vets.
Thought it was on a right do til a rep from another vets appeared on farm and quoted me £1.70 a dose
And a free vet visit to put me on the books
Considering lambing more hoggs to take advantage of cheap vax
 
Has anyone tried using toxovac at half rate?
When you consider that most crop chemicals are applied at rates well below recommended rates following research carried out by independent agronomists, has anyone done the same with vaccines.

The mode of action is very different to pesticides.

Ultimately you need enough vaccine to invoke an antibody response. I’ve no doubt you might get away with reducing the dose rate slightly and still get that response, but if you go too far, or conditions aren’t optimal, then it might not work at all. How would you know if that was the case?

My use of crop chemicals as an comparison was to make the point that there is independents questioning the recommended rates published by chemical manufacturers leading to cost saving.
2ml dose for a 120kg pure ewe and the same for a 50kg ewe lamb?
Would blood samples not prove a weight /dose to invoke enough antibody response?

Anyone had any trouble getting hold of Cevac? Vets can’t tell me when they will get it in. Although quoted 2.28 for 120 doses.

No bother getting cevac here, vets got it next day.
They were restricted to ordering small amounts of enzovax a day though, something like 80 doses a day in 20 dose packs. This was about 3 weeks ago.
No idea on price yet
