Covexin 8 For Goats Dosage

It is generally advised that all goats be vaccinated against overeating disease (enteroxemia) and tetanus. Both of these diseases are caused by clostridial bacteria present in animals and the environment. Goats kept on marginal pastures and/or not fed grain may be at much lower risk for overeating disease, but they are susceptible to tetanus. Vaccines used for these diseases usually provide protection for both diseases. These combination vaccines simplify herd preventive health programs and decrease costs.

Description

Novyi Type D), CI. Tenani and CI. Perfringens Types C and D. Can be used subcutaneously (SQ) or intramuscularly (IM) for cattle and should be used subcutaneously for sheep.

Dosage and administration

Vaccination programmeSheep: The vaccine course should be completed at least two weeks before maximum immunity is required. This may be either a period of risk or in pregnant ewes during lambing.Use during pregnancy: In lambing flocks, to ensure maximum protection of the lambs until 12 weeks of age, previously vaccinated ewes are best injected 2 weeks before lambing is due to commence. However, provided lambing in the group will not extend beyond a 6 week period, previously vaccinated pregnant ewes may be injected at any time from 6 to 2 weeks before the group is due to commence lambing. Lambs: Lambs born from fully vaccinated ewes should not be given their first dose of Covexin 8 until 8 to 12 weeks of age, since the presence of maternally derived antibodies may interfere with the response to C. tetani and C. novyi type B. Lambs born from unvaccinated ewes may be given their first dose of Covexin 8 from 2 weeks of age.Cattle: The vaccine course should be completed at least two weeks before maximum immunity is required. This may be either a period of risk or in pregnant cattle before calving.Use during pregnancy: For passive protection of calves, previously vaccinated pregnant cattle should be vaccinated during the period 2-8 weeks before calving.Calves: For an optimum immune response, calves from cows vaccinated during pregnancy should not be vaccinated until 8-12 weeks of age.

CATTLE: 5 mL injection administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly followed by a second 5 mL dose given six weeks later. Revaccinate annually with 5 mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition.

SHEEP: 5 mL injection administered subcutaneously followed by a second 2 mL dose given six weeks later. Revaccinate annually with 2 mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition.

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.
