Formalinised aluminium hydroxide gel adsorbed suspension of for prophylactic immunisation of calves against paratyphoid.
|Inactivated Salmonella dublin, S. typhimurium and S. bovis-morbificans bacteria||✓|
|Parasites, Vectors & Organisms Controlled|
The inactivated vaccine is designed primarily for use on premises where paratyphoid due to S. typhimurium and
S. bovis-morbificans is prevalent. It will also afford protection against S. dublin infections but a single injection of the live paratyphoid vaccine is adequate for routine use. A single injection of the vaccine gives a fair degree of immunity but the application of two injections provides a superior level of protection and this procedure is recommended. The inactivated vaccine may be used concomitantly with antibiotic therapy. Calves very rarely contract paratyphoid before they are two weeks old but in the instances where this might occur, the vaccine may be administered to the pregnant cows.
Vaccinate healthy animals only.
For subcutaneous injection.
Dose rates/directions for use:
Use only as directed.
Sterilise syringes and needles by boiling in water for at least 15 minutes. Do not use disinfectants or methylated spirits for sterilising either syringes or needles. Use a separate needle for each animal. Shake the bottle well
before use. Avoid exposure to high temperature and direct sunlight during inoculation. Calves should be given two subcutaneous injections at an interval of 10-14 days. The first injection must be given at 7-10 days of age and
the second at approximately three weeks of age. If cows are immunised, they should be given two injections at approximately 4-6 and 2-3 weeks respectively before calving.
Calves: 5 ml subcutaneously
Cows: 10 ml subcutaneously
Calves may show a very slight transient temperature reaction. The vaccine may occasionally give rise to a nodule at the injection site. Immunity usually develops 7-14 days after the second injection but cannot be guaranteed
in all animals.
