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.

Administration And Dosage

Shake well. Using aseptic technique

Cattle dosage: Inject 5 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly, repeated in 6 weeks. Revaccinate annually with 5 mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition. For animals subject to reexposure to Cl. novyi Type B and Cl. haemolyticum repeat the dose every 5 to 6 months. For Cl. perfringens Types B, C and D, revaccinate two weeks prior to parturition, introduction to lush pastures or finishing programs. Calves vaccinated under 3 months of age should be revaccinated at weaning or 4 to 6 months of age.

Sheep dosage: Inject 5 mL subcutaneously followed by a 2 mL dose in 6 weeks. Revaccinate annually with 2 mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition. For Cl. novyi and Cl. haemolyticum, revaccinate 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.
