Agglutinating antibody responses of several Atlantic bottlenose dolphins were measured after exposure to live and killed Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae vaccines. The live product was found to stimulate antibody production better than the killed bacterin. An immunization schedule utilizing an initial exposure to the bacterin with subsequent exposures with the live vaccine product is proposed.
