Calf Paratyphoid (Inactivated) Cows Vaccine
- 12 x 10ml
- 24 x 5ml
Formalinised aluminium hydroxide gel adsorbed suspension of inactivated Salmonella dublin , S. typhimurium and S. bovis-morbificans bacteria for prophylactic immunisation of calves against paratyphoid
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
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.
Do not slaughter animals for human consumption within 7 days of vaccination.
Vaccinate healthy animals only. Keep out of reach of children, uninformed persons and animals.
Occasionally animals on certain farms may show shock reactions shortly after injection of the vaccine.
In such circumstances a veterinarian should be consulted.
Although this product has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may ensue as a result of a wide range of reasons.
If this is suspected, seek veterinary advice and notify the registration holder.
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
EFFECTS OF THE VACCINE
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.
Store the vaccine at a temperature of 4 ˚C to 8 ˚C, in a refrigerator. Do not use the vaccine after the expiry date printed on the bottle.
