Virbac Animal Health’s extensive portfolio of vaccinations includes Websters low volume 6 in 1 vaccination for the treatment of cheesy gland and 5 different clostridial diseases in sheep.  The 6 in 1 vaccination is available with or without selenium.  

The 6 in 1 sheep vaccination prevents the following diseases:

  • cheesy gland caused by C. pseudotuberculosis (ovis)
  • blackleg caused by Cl. chauvoei
  • black disease caused by Cl. novyi type B
  • malignant oedema caused by Cl. Septicum
  • pulpy kidney (enterotoxaemia) caused by CI. perfringens type D
  • tetanus caused by CI. tetani  
The version with added selenium is only for use in areas that are deficient in natural selenium deposits.  It helps with the prevention of unthriftiness and other selenium responsive conditions such as white muscle disease.  

Lambs should be vaccinated at marking with a 1ml dose.  A second dose should be injected at weaning, 4 to 6 weeks later.  The vaccination should be administered by subcutaneous injection.  

Wherever possible ewes should also be vaccinated 2 to 3 weeks before birthing.  

To maintain full immunity lambs and ewes should receive annual booster doses.  

There is no requirement for a withholding period required with this 6 in 1 vaccination.  It is available in 200ml and should be refrigerated between 2°C and 8°C.
