TEST YOUR HERD, KNOW FOR SURE

Eliminate Complex Vertebral Malformation (CVM).

CVM
  • Complex Vertebral Malformation (CVM) is a recessive genetic defect that results in embryonic death and stillborn or deformed calves.
  • CVM is a genetic condition caused by a recessive gene mutation. This means an animal must receive a copy from each parent to be affected. Animals receiving one copy are considered “carriers” and can pass it on to their offspring. Animals with no copies are “free” of passing it on.

Test for CVM when you order CLARIFIDE®. Get critical genetic information to:
  • Identify and manage carriers of CVM—at Zoetis we test carriers twice to be sure
  • Make smarter breeding decisions by avoiding matching 'like' carriers
  • Help eliminate CVM from the herd over time
