New West Nile virus treatment
Colorado Serum Company recently introduced its West Nile Virus Antibody, Equine Origin, for use in controlling West Nile Virus (WNV) in horses. It is recommended that veterinarians use the West Nile Virus Antibody when the disease is detected in an unvaccinated horse or a vaccinated horse that has contracted the disease. Administered intravenously, West Nile Virus Antibody will enhance an animal’s ability to fight the virus by neutralizing it, and aid in the overall treatment. Unlike other WNV antibody treatments, this product is concentrated, purified and ready to use straight from the bottle—offering veterinarians an easy and safe tool to treat infected horses. Natural and safe, Colorado Serum’s West Nile Virus Antibody not only eliminates the need to pre-treat for possible reactions with histamine blockers or anti-inflammatory agents, but also contains no phenol. This product meets USDA field safety requirements for use in yearling or older horses, regardless of gender, breed or weight.

New gate opener easy to install
Tallahassee, FL-based GTO has an affordable way of automating field gates, even if they are out of range of common power sources. The firm has recently upgraded its do-it-yourself Mighty Mule E-Z swing gate openers to include commercial grade features usually found on more expensive commercial grade gate opener systems. The Mighty Mule operates on a low voltage battery that’s constantly recharged so it will still work during a power outage. It also works in extreme weather conditions. With a Mighty Mule, a gate can be opened and closed using a transmitter similar to a garage door opener. A wide variety of other accessories like automatic gate locks, gate light kits and intercoms are available to customize each individual gate system, providing peace-of-mind convenience and security.
