DOSAGE
After reconstitution administer at least 1 dose of the vaccine per chicken by coarse spray or oculo-nasal administration (eye drop) to chickens from 1 day of age or older.

Spray method

  • The vaccine should be dissolved in cool, clean, non-chlorinated water which is free from iron.
  • The spray apparatus should be free from sediments, corrosion and traces of disinfectants.
  • The spray apparatus should be used for vaccination purposes only.
  • Measure the correct volume of water for the number of chickens to be vaccinated and add the contents of the correct number of cups while stirring. Mix thoroughly with a clean stirrer, ensuring that all vaccine is dissolved.
  • Offer to the chickens immediately after reconstitution.
  • When spray devices are used it is advisable to consult the technical staff of MSD Animal Health before using this technique.

Oculo-nasal administration

  • Reconstitute the vaccine with the appropriate amount of a suitable solvent and administer by means of the standardised dropper.
  • One drop should be applied into one nostril or one eye. Ensure that the nasal drop is inhaled before freeing the chicken. The eye drop should be allowed to spread across the surface of the eye and do not release the chicken until a swallowing motion is noticed.
  • Nobilis® Diluent Oculo Nasal is available as solvent.
