This product is available in 1000 and 5000 dose vials. For long term storage H.E.

Snick Guard®

Licensed in 2003, ARKO's "Snick Guard" is a modified live vaccine that aids in the prevention of Bordetella avium infection in turkeys. Field usage has resulted in reports of increase rate of gain in vaccinated flocks on B. avium infected premises. Prevention of B. avium infections will help reduce the clinical signs of newcastle and pneumovirus outbreaks. Research studies consistently show that B. avium infections along with newcastle or pneumovirus challenges result in much more severe disease conditions than disease due to newcastle or pneumovirus alone. Snick Guard is offered in 2000 dose size, and is to be administered at ages 10 and 24 days of age. This is a freeze-dried product and can be conveniently stored at refrigerator temperatures.

Nitro Chol®

Licensed since 1990, ARKO's Nitro-Chol has proven to be very effective in aiding in the prevention of Pastuerella multocida in flocks - the cause of fowl cholera. Nitro-Chol is the best choice for prevention of uncomplicated cases of fowl cholera. Use of Nitro-Chol can also reduce the dependence on antibiotic treatments in infected flocks. It is available in the 1000 dose size, and is to be administered at age 6 weeks or older with a repeat vaccination every 3-5 weeks. This product should be stored frozen.

ARKO offers Stable-DYE-zer, a waterline stabilizer with a blue dye to monitor the movement of vaccines through the waterline. ARKO's original stabilizer helps neutralize chlorine in the water, stabilizes vaccine membranes and provides nutrition for vaccines while in solution. The new Stable-DYE-zer provides all of those benefits as well as added stabilization plus the dye to track the movement of the vaccine.
