OVINE ECTHYMA VACCINE

Colorado Serum

Live Virus

GENERAL INFORMATION: This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy sheep and goats against contagious Ecthyma (Sore Mouth Disease). This product was licensed prior to the requirement to establish a minimum age for use. The duration of immunity is unknown. For information regarding efficacy and safety data, see productdata.aphis.usda.gov.

Ovine Ecthyma (Sore Mouth) is a contagious disease of sheep and goats caused by a virus. It is characterized by vesicular, pustular lesions that progress to the formation of thick scabs on the lips or the skin.

Infected sucklings may transmit the infection to the udder of susceptible ewes, which limits nursing, leading to severe economic impact from loss of weight and condition. Spontaneous healing in 4-5 weeks may occur without treatment; however, if secondary bacterial infection develops, fatalities can range from 10-50 percent.

Treatment is difficult. In small flocks, scabs can be removed and the lesions cleansed. A penetrating antiseptic may be of limited value regarding bacterial infections; however, preventative vaccination is the best procedure.

WHEN TO VACCINATE: Because dried scabs retain the infective virus which is resistant to heat and cold and can survive from year to year, vaccinating new lambs and kids is advisable. Range lambs moving into feedlots should be vaccinated at least 14 days before shipment to prevent possible spread of virus after arrival.

DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION: The recommended single dose for both sheep and goats is one drop of vaccine, approximately 0.04 ml. There are 100 doses per bottle of vaccine, approx. 0.04 ml per dose (one drop). Rehydrate vaccine with accompanying diluent immediately before use. Shake well until completely dissolved.

Select a wool free area of skin such as inside the flank and scarify the outer layer by scratching with the notched handle of the applicator furnished as a part of the package. Scratching should not be deep enough to cause bleeding but should be sufficient to roughen the skin. Scarified area should be at least one square inch. The brush end of the applicator should be dipped into the bottle and the vaccine then vigorously brushed into the prepared scarified area.

Reddening and a slight swelling of the site of administration should be observed a few days after vaccination. The area will raise, rupture, and scab over representing a “take”, indicating a successful vaccination. Scabs will dry and fall off in about 2 to 4 weeks.

Historically, annual revaccination is recommended. Contact veterinarian for advice.

PRECAUTIONS: Brushes and scarifiers should be used only in a single flock of sheep. If the scarifier/applicator is needed a second time, it should be sterilized by boiling in water for several minutes. Do not use disinfectants to sterilize equipment. In the event of human exposure, contact a physician. Safety in pregnant animals is unknown.

OTHER INFORMATION: Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter or within 24 hours of dipping or spraying. Store at 2-8° C. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not freeze. Do not mix with other products other than enclosed diluent. Inactivate unused contents before disposal.

Contains Penicillin G and Streptomycin Sulfate as preservatives. Packaged in 100 dose size.

TETANUS TOXOID-CONCENTRATED

Colorado Serum

Adjuvanted

GENERAL INFORMATION: This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and swine against tetanus. This product was licensed prior to the requirement to establish a minimum age for use. The duration of immunity is unknown. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data, see productdata.aphis.usda.gov.

Safety in pregnant animals is unknown.

Tetanus Toxoid is prepared by detoxifying tetanus toxin in such a manner as to allow the antigenic properties to remain intact. Product is purified, concentrated and adjuvanted to provide a low dose effective immunizing agent.

Each serial is tested for purity, safety, and potency in accordance with USDA requirements.

Tetanus is caused by a neurotoxin produced by growth of Clostridium tetani, an anaerobic (lives without air) micro-organism, in necrotic tissue. Affected animals become stiff, have difficulty swallowing, and have an increased pulse rate. Breathing is labored. Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur, such as contracting muscles of the jaw.

Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur, such as contracting muscles of the jaw. Thus, the term “lockjaw” is often used. Legs and tail are often stiff with abdominal muscles contracted. Tetanus stricken animals may be unusually sensitive to light and heat. Temperature of the animal generally remains normal, elevating only shortly before death.

Protective antibody levels usually occur about two weeks after the second injection of the primary immunization series. In contrast, administration of Tetanus Antitoxin is recommended for immediate, emergency, passive treatment of exposed animals with unknown vaccination history or with signs of tetanus infection.

DIRECTIONS: Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. Store at 2-8° C. Do not freeze. Do not mix with other products. Shake well before use. Use entire contents when first opened.

PRECAUTIONS: A transitory local reaction may occur at injection site. Anaphylactoid reaction may occur following administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent. In case of human exposure, consult a physician.

DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION: For primary immunization, two doses should be administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly approximately 30 days apart. Use intramuscularly for horses as local reactions are more likely to occur if injected subcutaneously.

Horses: 1 ml IM

Cattle: 1 ml SC or IM

Sheep, Goats, Swine: 0.5 ml SC or IM

Historically, annual single dose revaccination has been recommended. Contact veterinarian for advice.

OTHER INFORMATION: Contains thimerosal and formalin as preservatives. Tetanus Toxoid Concentrate is available in single dose size packaged 10 vials to the carton, and in 10 dose vials.
