We've been going through a lot more. We can get more. People are uhm..currently in it's very sturdy supply. I haven't had any problems getting the vaccine. Says manager the of the Palmer Feed and Supply Store, Bridget Scott.
San Angelo veterinarian Gary Hodges says the only way to help prevent an animal from getting anthrax is to vaccinate.
The spores are washed up to the surface. It attaches to the grass and weeds, and becomes a vegetative form. The animals eat this, and this is how the animals contact it. It doesn't matter if you have a 1000 pound cow or a 100 pound sheep. Each animal gets 1-cc and it's a vaccination given under the skin. Says Gary Hodges.
State officials say nearly 20 cattle and a number of deer have died of Anthrax in Tom Green County, but pet owners shouldn't worry to much about their pet contracting anthrax.
Most likely you're going to see it in pasture type animals. Unless you have a pet that goes into the pasture and comes in contact with a carcass, but the odds are unlikely. Now if your pet chews on a deer that had died from anthrax, they could pick up from chewing on something like this. Says Hodges.
Scott says the store usually carries an abundant supply of vaccines.
