Virus Challenges in Animals
Our livestock are under constant attack by bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi
and toxins, some being pathogenic all the way to those that are harmless.  
They affect our animals and birds in many different ways, from being toxic
to causing inflammation of nerves, muscles, and organs.  The primary
defense systems are the innate, humeral, and cellular immune systems.

Many researchers in this complex field agree that if the immune systems are
working right, clinical diseases, in many cases, will be rare.  This is not to say
that the animal was not attacked by the pathogen, but had the ability to
eliminate the problem.

To help the immune system to recognize and fight off many virus challenges,
we use a system of vaccinations.  The purpose here is to introduce the
animal's immune system to the "bug" and therefore allow it to strengthen its
resistance.  This approach works very well if strict attention is paid to the
immune systems.

An animal that has a poorly developed immune system will not in many cases
develop a solid immunity.  In these cases, we refer to the vaccination as a
vaccine failure.  The animal is still able to be openly infected by the

Vaccination without proper stimulation of the immune system leads to many
vaccination failures and discouraging results.  By using Karbo Combo or
Karbo Flour/Pellets as a supplement, the immune system is constantly
stimulated and modulated.  Therefore, it can respond to everyday challenges
and build a solid immune response when stimulated with a vaccine.

Today, vaccines are available in many forms, such as oral vaccination,
injectable vaccination, inhalant vaccination, and osmotic (fish) vaccination
