This vaccination programme is a guideline only. Please discuss a tailor-made programme for your farm with one of our veterinarians.
Vaccinations on Game Ranches
Game animals are usually only vaccinated in the face of specific threats and/or when the species are particularly valuable. Drop-out darts are usually used.
Examples are as follows:
Sable and roan antelope, giraffe and buffalo are sometimes vaccinated against Anthrax [Miltsiekte], Botulism [Lamsiekte], other Clostridial diseases such as “sponssiekte” and Rift Valley Fever.
In 2012 about 50% of the Roan Antelope population in the Kruger National Park died of anthrax in breeding camps, because the responsible individuals did not vaccinate them!
