As an example, the American Foundation declared a fractional drop of vims loin a syringe might be enough to start a disastrous outbreak of disease. Moreover, the statement added, failure to sterilize syringes properly after each use might transmit such serious livestock plagues as hog i cholera, anaplsismosis, anthrax. BUS. gangrene, iwamp fever, or others. | "Proper vaccination," the live-' stock health organization said, "requires a thorough knowledge of diseases and vaccines; careful determination of when and whether to vaccinate, and what kind of vaccine to use; sterilization of syringes with the proper agents; and thorough experience In handling the necessary materials and Instruments."
