Thanks for that wajmcd. I hadnt realised that, last time I vaccinated stock it was with a CSL vaccine but that was a while ago. As you say there is probably not the money in animal vaccines there is in human vaccines. The bulk of their business nowadays is in blood fractionation, so they are probably trying not to have to broad a portfolio.

CSL actually developed the first vaccine against canine parvovirus back in the late 70s copying James Cook Uni researchers who found that vaccinating dogs with cat enteritis vaccine gave some immunity. I think that CSL sold all their animal vaccine/ antivenene business to Pfizer last year, probably not as profitable as the government subsidised human division.

Canine Parvovirus cannot infect humans and any responsible owner should have their dog immunised when they are a puppy!! If a dog has had its shots, this is one of the diseases protected against.

CSL produces animal vaccines as well as human vaccines. It seems to be flying today,up nearly 2% today despite going ex dividend.

An article in last Saturday's SMH caught my attention titled : PUPPY VIRUS ALERT
So I wonder if this is to be the next deadly virus to sweep the globe?
So far we've had the bird flu, swine flu, horse flu, cow disease, so maybe now it is the PUPPY FLU............any companies on the ASX doing doggie virus??????

The article goes:
"A DEADLY puppy virus is sweeping the state, according to a top veterinarian.
Australian Veterinary Association NSW president Rod Starr said: "We have seen a significant increase in dogs with canine parvovirus...Common signs [of the virus] are vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. If your pet has any of these sympotoms you should see your vet straight away."
Vaccination was an effective way to prevent infection, Dr Starr said". End of quote
