Increase the speed and simplify blanket vaccinations.
When we must treat many animals (e.g. when blanket vaccinations or antiparasitic treatments must be administered), injections must be fast and correct to minimise causing pain to the pigs.
For the injections of stalled animals, but also for those that live in large pens, we must have an automatic syringe directly connected to the container through a tube so we can move quickly and effectively. Also it is important that the product container does not bother or hit us, and that it remains inverted, so no air is sucked by the tube.
The idea consists in introducing the vial in a container where it is fastened and remains upside down and located above the syringe. It is better not to hang it from the waist of the worker, so the tube does not get caught on screws, hooks or when jumping the fences.
To obtain this vial carrier we need a plastic bottle, a wide rubber band and the syringe and its tube.
We cut the bottle in half, or a bit less; we also cut the threaded area at the mouth, we make two cuts at the sides to take the rubber band through the bottle, we introduce the tube through the mouth of the bottle and we connect it to the vial, we hang it all from our shoulder, and we are ready.
