Vaccination advice

We supply vaccine administration kits and will provide detailed training on the administration of vaccines. If you are a larger flock owner intending to mass vaccinate with water or spray vaccines we suggest you have a site visit by one of our field staff to explain the correct technique. These visits are charged at £35 + vat per hour and we will then provide a detailed vaccination programme. You will need to register with one of our poultry vets.

The important points are:

  • Do not add vaccine to chlorinated water without using a protective dye
  • Make sure the area where you make up the vaccine is clean
  • Do not contaminate the vaccine with disinfectants
  • Do not withdraw the water for too long
  • Make sure the birds all have vaccine added water at the same time
  • Dispose of the vaccine containers properly

Once again we recommend a site visit to help you set up the vaccine correctly

Vaccines can also be sprayed on birds and we can hire out the correct equipment if required

Vaccines by injection

The most common times to give a vaccine by injection is at day old for Mareks disease or at point of lay to ensure a good level of protection during lay against IB, TRT, ND, EDS and possibly MG.

We will provide one to one training for any client wishing to vaccinate birds by injection as there are many problems and possible welfare issues if the technique, which is not difficult, is not carried out correctly.

Contact your vet for further advice or register with one of our associated practices as a client.
