    Hello All,
    To cut a very long story short I bought in a new bird from the uk, I am in Ireland and she was sick and died and it spread and is still spreading throughout my flock.
    It is ILT.

    This saga is going on since Dec and is not stopping.
    So I am desperate.
    I cannot get any of the stores to ship to the vaccine to Ireland even though I have said that I will pay upfront and will assume all risk and loss of it gets stopped at customs. But my vet said that he will contact customs for me if necessary.

    So I am wondering if anyone would be willing to purchase the vaccine for me and ship it to me. I will cover any petrol expenses and time involved.

    I am truly at my wits end and begging anyone for assistance.

    The vaccine is not registered in Irelamd which is why I cannot get it there my vet has tried for me.

    Welcome to BYC. Have you had a confirmed test for ILT? I can't find where it is sold commercially online in the US. There are a couple of advertisements from the companies that make them, but no online stores are selling that particular vaccine. There are a couple of other threads in the last few years asking the same question, but without an answer.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for your reply.
    The v sick birds have been coughing up blood and based on other factors my vet has confirmed ILT.

    There are a few places that stock the vaccine and I have been in contact with them but they don't ship to Ireland or internationally only within the US.

    I sent you a PM with a couple of places that say they do.
