Pasteurella Sheep & Goat 100ml
Formalinised, aluminium hydroxide gel absorbed polyvalent suspension of Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica type 2, 5, 6 & 9 and Bibersteinia trehalosi type 15 for the control of Pasteurella infections in sheep and goats
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE:
Sheep and goats of all ages are affected and the disease usually causes different forms of pneumonia (“bontlong” and “harslagsiekte”) and Pasteurella bacteria are also one of the causes of mastitis (blue udder). Pasteurella infections are frequently accompanied by infections by parainfluenza virus, mycoplasma organisms and diseases such as chlamydiosis and “jaagsiekte” as well as stress conditions such as drought and cold. In order to obtain
the best results with the vaccine these conditions should also be combated. There are a great variety of Pasteurella bacterial strains and only the most important strains are included in the vaccine. Consequently the vaccine will be ineffective in certain instances. If problems are encountered a veterinarian should be consulted.
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. In exceptional cases Pasteurella vaccine may cause shock reactions. A number of less valuable animals should therefore be injected first and observed for one hour before the whole herd is immunised. 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 temperatures and direct sunlight during inoculation.Depending on circumstances, animals may be immunised at any age from two weeks. Animals which are inoculated for the first time must receive two injections with an interval of four weeks. A booster injection must be given 6 months later. Thereafter a single injection should be given annually.
Sheep and goats: 2 ml subcutaneously
EFFECTS OF THE VACCINE:
The vaccine causes virtually no reaction. A small lump may, however, develop at the injection site and animals may show temporary lameness. If pregnant animals must be inoculated, it is advisable to inject a few animals and observe them for 30-60 minutes before the whole flock is done. Immunity usually develops approximately two weeks after the second inoculation and protection potentially lasts for about 6 months 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.
Available in bottles of 50 doses.
