A multivalent Bacteroides nodosus foot rot vaccine was tested by comparing the prevalence of foot rot in 317 vaccinated ewes and lambs with the prevalence in 422 unvaccinated control sheep. The vaccine conferred statistically significant protection against foot rot. The vaccine also demonstrated a therapeutic effect in animals with foot rot, after one injection.
