Indications: For the vaccination of healthy cattle and sheep as an aid in the prevention of diseases caused by Clostridium chauvoei, C. septicum, C. novyi Type B, C. haemolyticum (known also as C. novyi Type D), C. tetani and C. perfringens Types C and D.
Immunity is also provided as an aid in the prevention of diseases caused by the beta and epsilon toxins of an additional organism, C. perfringens Type B. Although C. perfringens Type B is not a significant problem in North America (US), immunity is derived from a combination of Type C (beta) and Type D (epsilon) C. perfringens fractions.
Cattle Dosage: Inject 5mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly, repeated in 6 weeks. Revaccinate annually with 5mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition. For animals subject to re-exposure to C. novyi Types B or D (C. haemolyticum) repeat the dose every 5 to 6 months. For C. perfringens Types B, C and D, revaccinate two weeks prior to parturition, introduction to lush pastures or finishing program. Calves vaccinated under 3 months of age should be revaccinated at weaning or 4 to 6 months of age.
Sheep Dosage: Inject 5mL subcutaneously followed by a 2mL dose in 6 weeks. Revaccinate annually with 2mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition. For animals subject to re-exposure to C. novyi Types B or D (C. haemolyticum) repeat the dose every 5 to 6 months. Vaccination should be scheduled so that pregnant ewes receive their second vaccination or annual booster 2 to 6 weeks before lambing commences in the flock. Lambs should be given their primary course beginning at 10 to 12 weeks of age.
