Formalinised alum-precipitated toxoid of Clostridium perfringens (welchii) type D for the immunisation of sheep and goats against enterotoxaemia (Pulpy kidney disease)
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE:
Lambs can be immunised from 4-5 months of age or even sooner if they are weaned at an early age. The best immunity is obtained when animals are first given an injection of oil emulsion vaccine followed by a second injection of the alum-precipitated vaccine 4-6 weeks later. If lambs younger than 4 months of age are immunised a booster injection of the alum-precipitated vaccine should be given after 6-8 months. Hereafter an annual booster injection of the alum-precipitated vaccine should be given.
NB: Lambs younger than 2 months and animals in poor condition, infected with internal parasites or which are suffering from other diseases will not immunise well. Pregnant ewes may safely be immunised with this vaccine.
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. 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. If possible use a separate needle for each animal. Avoid exposure to high temperature and direct sunlight during inoculation. Administer the vaccine subcutaneously in the groin or behind the shoulder. Shake the bottle well before use.
DOSAGE: 1 ml subcutaneously
