late giving vaccinations

I am late giving vaccinations to a gilt that is to be bred in three weeks. I am planning on giving her Farrowsure Gold and Circoflex separately. My question is do I give her two shots of the farrowsure gold a week apart of each other or just give her one shot of the farrowsure gold and be done? Also...

Re: pg 600, matrix and heat cycles

I have a gilt that is young, not quite 6 months of age, so my question is with PG 600 do you give it to a gilt that has not yet cycled or do you give her matrix instead?

stopping matrix

I was just wondering with Matrix as to when is the best day to stop it on, a Wednesday or a Thursday? Also, is it best to use it for 14 or 15 days?

Re: respiratory congestion

treated him with nuflor twice with 1 cc each time, 48 hours apart last week, made a difference in some of the congestion and "gunk" around his eyes but still doesn't sound like he is breathing right and still not eating like he should. What can or should I do now?
