Cattle Pneumonia Vaccine

Respiratory disease is an infection of the respiratory tract caused by viruses and/or bacteria. It occurs when either bacterial and/or viral agents are combined with poor air quality and ventilation, poor husbandry and/or stress. Financial losses result from mortality, extra labour and treatment costs, but the greatest loss is from weight loss during illness and recovery.  

Description

The intranasal vaccine can be administered to calves from as young as a week of age and reduces the clinical signs of respiratory disease and viral shedding from infection with Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus (BRSV) and Parainfluenza-3 Virus (Pi3V). No other UK-licensed BRD vaccine can be administered earlier in life. The vaccine also delivers the fastest on-farm protection, with an onset of immunity after administration of just 5 days for BRSV and 7 days for Pi3V. Duration of immunity is 12 weeks for both viruses.

“Having this early life calf pneumonia vaccine available in single dose vials will give farmers more practical leeway to be able to vaccinate vulnerable young calves from as young as a week of age, rather than delaying administration until a batch of calves are available. We know that early-age protection of young calves through intranasal vaccination can help prevent pneumonia and positively impact a beef or dairy calf’s productive future,” says MSD Animal Health livestock veterinary adviser Dr Kat Baxter-Smith.

Precautions:

  1. Store at 2° C to 7° C. Prolonged exposure to higher temperatures may adversely affect potency. Do not freeze.
  2. Use entire contents when first opened.
  3. Sterilized syringes and needles should be used to administer this vaccine.
  4. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.
  5. As with many vaccines, anaphylaxis may occur after use. Initial antidote of epinephrine is recommended and should be followed with appropriate supportive therapy.
  6. This product has been shown to be efficacious in healthy animals. A protective immune response may not be elicited if animals are incubating an infectious disease, are malnourished or parasitized, are stressed due to shipment or environmental conditions, are otherwise immunocompromised, or the vaccine is not administered in accordance with label directions.
