The days of trichomoniasis being known as a western states problem may be coming to an end. With consecutive drought years through many of the cow-calf regions of the country, trich is being found in new areas and cattlemen are feeling its impact.

Trichomoniasis is a venereal disease carried by bulls and transferred to healthy cows, resulting in early embryonic death or abortion. In the video below, Dr. Doug Ensley, Professional Services Veterinarian with Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., explains why trich is moving into new areas, risk factors for the disease and vaccination options to help protect your herd.

TrichGuard® is available with trichomoniasis coverage alone, or in combination with vibrio and five-way leptospirosis protection. To learn how you can make TRICHGUARD part of your trichomoniasis prevention plan, contact your herd veterinarian or Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. representative, or visit the company’s “TrichGuard” website.
