Our Detailed Review of the Essential 3+T CDT Vaccine for Sheep
There are many different vaccines for Overeating Disease (Enterotoxemia) in sheep and many, like Essential 3+T from Colorado Serum, include the tetanus vaccine in addition to vaccine for Clostridium Perfringens Type C & D. Of the available vaccines this was our favorite and we give it an enthusiastic 5 stars for several reasons:
- It's great that it comes in a small bottle with only a few doses ... this allows small hobby farmers to order one small bottle each year, reduce waste and be sure that they're always administering a fresh vaccine.
- While there's always a risk of a lump or bump forming when you administer a CDT vaccine, we found (and other reviewers on other sites agree) that Essential 3+T from Colorado Serum rarely results in lumps, bumps or sores at the injection site. This is great for any animal, but it's especially great for show lambs.
- It works - while treating our livestock with Essential 3+T we didn't lose a single lamb or adult sheep to Overeating Disease or Tetanus.
