Swine Viral Challenges


Our livestock are under constant attack by viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and toxins, some being pathogenic all the way to those that are harmless. They affect our animals and birds in many different ways, from being toxic to causing inflammation of nerves, muscles, and organs. The primary defense systems are the innate, humeral, and cellular immune systems.

Many researchers in this complex field agree that if the immune systems are working right, clinical diseases, in many cases, will be rare. That is not to say that the animal was not exposed and attacked by the virus, bacteria, protozoa, fungi, or toxin. However, it means that it was attacked, but had the ability to eliminate the problem.

To help the immune system to recognize and fight off many viral and bacterial challenges, we use a system of vaccinations. The purpose here is to introduce the animal’s immune system to the bug and therefore allow it to strengthen its resistance. This approach works very well if strict attention is paid to the immune systems.

An animal or bird, especially a young animal or bird, that has a poorly developed immune system will not, in many cases, develop a solid immunity. In these cases, we refer to the vaccination as a vaccination failure. The animal is still able to be openly infected by the virus or bacteria.

Vaccination without proper stimulation of the immune system leads to many vaccination failures and discouraging results. By using Karbo Combo+ or a combination of Karbo Flour+ or Karbo Pellets+ and Epic II CL as a supplement, the immune system is constantly stimulated and modulated. Therefore it can respond to everyday challenges and build a solid immune response when stimulated with a vaccine.

Research shows that if the immune systems are working correctly, very little clinical disease is found.
