STORAGE

  • Store between 2 ºC and 8 ºC.
  • Do not freeze.
  • Protect from light.

WARNINGS

  • Withdrawal period: Do not slaughter animals for human consumption within 20 days of vaccination.
  • Some animals may develop a transient inflammatory reaction over the injection site, which is normal following vaccination with an oily vaccine.
  • In case of inoculation in the hind quarters, a slight limp could arise ± 2 days after injection and disappear 2 to 3 days later. A moderate rise in temperature may also follow vaccination.
  • As with all vaccines, occasional hypersensitivity reactions may occur. In such cases, appropriate treatment such as adrenaline and/or antihistamines should be administered without delay.
  • Dispose of any unused vaccine as well as empty vaccine containers and vaccination equipment according to local waste disposal regulations.
  • 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. 
  • Only sterile needles and properly sterilised vaccinator should be used. In order to maintain a proper hygiene, it is advisable to change to clean sterile needles as frequently as possible.
  • The vaccine should be administered by deep intramuscular injection
  • Sheep should first be vaccinated at 4 months of age and annually thereafter. 
  • In order to ensure a proper inoculation, it is preferable to inject the vaccine while fleece is short. 
  • Immunity is established within 2 to 3 weeks after inoculation and lasts for 1 year. 
  • Lambs born from ewes vaccinated 10 to14 days before lambing are protected for 12 to 16 weeks by the antibodies passed in the colostrum. 
  • As usual with all vaccines, absolute immunity cannot be guaranteed in all animals. Therefore, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian regarding additional control measures, instead of relying on the vaccine alone.
