For beef cattle producers, BOVI-SHIELD GOLD® 5 is a modified-live virus used for the vaccination of healthy cattle to prevent infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) virus and to aid in the prevention of bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses, and disease caused by parainfluenza 3 (PI3) virus and bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV).

Description

Bovi-Shield Gold 5 is a cattle vaccine for the protection of healthy animals to prevent respiratory disease caused by IBR, BVD Types I and II, PI3 and BRSV. Give 2 ml subcutaneous or intramuscular. Safe for pregnant cows or calves nursing pregnant cows, provided they were vaccinated according to label directions with any Bovi-Shield Gold FP or PregGuard Gold FP vaccine within the last 12 months. Annual booster is recommended. Modified live virus, requires mixing.

Indications

Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 is for vaccination of healthy cows and heifers prior to breeding as an aid in preventing persistently infected calves caused by bovine virus diarrhea (BVD) virus Types 1 and 2; abortion caused by infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR, bovine herpesvirus Type 1) virus; BVD Type 2 testicular infection; and respiratory disease caused by IBR, BVD Types 1 and 2, parainfluenza-3 (PI-3) and bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV). A 12-month duration of immunity has been demonstrated against IBR-induced abortion and persistently infected calves caused by BVD Types 1 and 2.

Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 may be administered to pregnant cattle provided they were vaccinated according to label directions with any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP vaccine within the past 12 months. Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 may also be administered to calves nursing pregnant cows provided their dams were vaccinated within the past 12 months as described above. Note that the efficacy of Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 as an aid in preventing abortion caused by IBR virus and BVD Type 2 testicular infection was demonstrated by intramuscular injection only. To help ensure safety in pregnant cattle, cows and heifers must receive at least 2 doses of any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP product as non-pregnant animals with the first dose administered after 6 months of age and the second dose administered approximately 30 days prebreeding.
