    Hi Tracy the Chick

    Here are some links that may help you and your vet.... They are USA centric I imagine, but may help you out.

    http://www.firststatevetsupply.com/content/view/17/37/ -- FYI - some discrepancy - some sites say that the wafer cannot be divided because the virus is not equally distributed on the wafer

    Of course you cannot order from the states---but it may help your vet pin it down.

    I tried to get some flubenvent (I think that is the UK broad spectrum wormer used over there---) and I couldn't get it across the pond. ;O)

    Hi Tracy---

    I was reading an article about Mareks and it said that the vaccine used in the UK and Europe is: CV1988, while here in the USA it is HVT (which is 'herpes virus turkey')
