Our passion is the prevention and control of animal diseases that are unique to Africa. Prevention of spread of some of these diseases to other continents has significantly broadened our market. We believe the use of vaccines as a preventative method of disease management and herd protection is vastly preferable to the use of anti-microbials, which are a diagnostic treatment and to which widespread and untreatable resistance has developed. In addition, anti-microbials are ineffective against viral diseases, while many virus-specific vaccines are efficient in the prevention of these diseases. As is true for many situations, including animal health, prevention is better than crisis management. Timeous use of vaccines provides the means for the prevention of a broad range of animal diseases.
