Plasvacc Plasma Products as an Investment
Quality plasma products are an investment in the health and longevity of animals in your care. As veterinarians know, it is safer and less expensive to prevent an illness or infection, than to cure it after it has compromised a patient’s health. Plasvacc’s hyperimmunised plasma can help prevent common illnesses in dogs and horses, such as Parvovirus, Rhodococcus, Pancreatitis, and many other widespread diseases.
CANIPLAS®: FRESH FROZEN CANINE PLASMA
When a dog is infected with Parvovirus, for example, hospitalisation is almost always required. A typical hospitalisation stay for Parvo can be anywhere from 5-7 days, and run into the thousands of dollars. Caniplas hyperimmunised plasma for dogs can often reduce the length of hospitalisation by half. And shorter vet stays mean fewer medications and less stress for the animal—all of which translate to lower costs to the owner. You can learn more about the effects of hyperimmunised plasma on Parvovirus in this abstract:
EQUIPLAS®: EQUINE GAMMA GLOBULINS In horses, Failure of Passive Transfer (FPT) is another illustration of how Plasvacc’s hyperimmunised plasma can prevent illness and save lives. When a newborn foal doesn’t receive the needed immunoglobulin antibodies through its mother’s colostrum, FPT can be life-threatening. Veterinarians who give 1-2 liters of Equiplas plasma at birth can raise the foal’s IgG levels and often prevent serious complications. And if a foal does get sick after a plasma protocol, it will typically recover faster, with fewer antibiotics and shorter clinic stays.
Plasvacc’s plasma products have also been shown to be effective in the treatment and prevention of other equine illnesses such as Endotoxaemia and Rhodococcus. Listen to what veterinarians have to say about their plasma protocols here.
SMALL INVESTMENT, BIG RETURNS
Early, preventative protocols using hyperimmunised plasma can give dogs and horses stronger defences against serious, costly diseases later in life. Investing in plasma products doesn’t just bring financial returns, but the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing everything possible to ensure that the animal lives a long and healthy life.
Keeping animals healthy and happy is our priority here at Plasvacc, that’s why we work so hard to make sure that the dogs and horses you care for have the best start in life, and a fighting chance against diseases as they get older.
If the treatments can pay for themselves in one vet visit, while also giving the animal the best possible chance at recovery, isn’t it worth it? We think so.
