WARNINGS

  • Withdrawal period: DO NOT SLAUGHTER ANIMALS FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION WITHIN 7 DAYS OF VACCINATION.
  • Usually no marked reaction follows vaccination although a transient swelling may appear at the site of inoculation, and some animals may show a moderate rise in temperature for one or two days.
  • KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, UNINFORMED PERSONS AND ANIMALS.
  • Although this vaccine 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

  • Shake bottle well before use and repeat from time to time during the vaccination process.
  • Partially used containers should be disposed of at the end of each day’s operation, according to waste disposal regulations, since under field conditions it may be difficult to avoid accidental contamination of the vaccine.
  • If possible use a separate, sharp, sterile needle for each animal.
  • Administer the vaccine subcutaneously on the side of the neck midway between the shoulder and the head.
  • Goats should be vaccinated under the loose skin underneath the tail. Do not vaccinate goats in the neck.
  • Sheep and goats not previously vaccinated should be given 2 injections of vaccine, with an interval of 4-6 weeks.
  • Lambs and kids can be immunised from 3 months of age. Administer a second dose 4-6 weeks later.
  • An annual booster injection should be given to the whole flock 2-6 weeks before the ewes are due to lamb.
  • Lambs born from ewes vaccinated before lambing are protected for 12-16 weeks by the antibodies passed in the colostrum.
  • It is sound practice to re-inoculate vaccinated sheep shortly before the period of greatest risk.

Note:   Lambs and kids younger than 2 months and animals in poor condition, infested with parasites or which are suffering from other diseases will not immunise well.
