Description

Heptavac P Plus for the active immunisation of sheep to reduce mortality and clinical signs of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus, braxy, blackleg and black disease. Administer by subcutaneous injection in upper neck observing aseptic precautions. All breeding sheep must receive two 2ml injections separated by an interval of 4-6 weeks. In adult breeding ewes, the second 2ml dose should be administered 4-6 weeks prior to lambing. Lambs being retained for fattening or subsequent breeding will require a full course of vaccination. At a minimum age of 3 weeks these lambs should receive two 2ml injections separated by an interval of 4-6 weeks. A 2ml booster injection should be given no longer than 12 months after their last vaccination. In adult breeding ewes these yearly booster injections should be given 4-6 weeks prior to lambing. On farms where the incidence of pasteurellosis is high, a supplementary 2ml booster injection using Ovipast Plus may be required 2-3 weeks prior to expected seasonal outbreaks.

  • Treat your sheep with Heptavac P Plus to reduce mortality and clinical signs of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus, braxy, blackleg and black disease.
  • You should vaccinate breeding sheep with two 2ml injections before breeding with the second dose 4-6 weeks prior lambing
  • After this a booster dose should be given every 12 months to renew and maintain immunity

Indications for use

For the active immunisation of sheep as an aid in the control of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus, braxy, blackleg, black disease, clostridial metritis caused by Clostridium perfringens types B, C and D, Cl.septicumCl.novyiCl.chauvoei and Cl.tetani. The vaccine may be used as an aid in the control of pneumonic pasteurellosis in sheep of all ages from a minimum age of 3 weeks and in the control of systemic pasteurellosis in weaned fattening and breeding sheep.The vaccine may be used in pregnant ewes as an aid in the control of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, tetanus and pasteurellosis in their lambs provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 1-2 days of life.

Dosage & Administration

  • Sheep of all ages: 2 ml per injection by subcutaneous injection in the lateral side of the upper neck observing aseptic precautions.
  • All breeding sheep not previously vaccinated with Heptavac P Plus must receive two injections, each of 2 ml, separated by an interval of 4-6 weeks.
  • Thereafter they must receive booster injections at intervals of not more than 12 months.
  • In adult breeding ewes these yearly booster injections should be given during the pre-lambing period, 4-6 weeks before lambing, as an aid in control of disease in their lambs.
  • Ewes may be vaccinated during pregnancy as an aid in the control of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, tetanus and pasteurellosis in their lambs provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 1-2 days of life.
  • On farms where the incidence of pasteurellosis is high, a supplementary booster injection using a Pasteurella vaccine may be required 2-3 weeks prior to expected seasonal outbreaks.
  • Heptavac P Plus should not be used in lambs less than 3 weeks of age due to the possible immunological incompetence of the very young lamb and competition from any maternally derived colostral antibodies.
  • Lambs being retained for fattening or subsequent breeding will require a full course of vaccination. At a minimum age of 3 weeks these lambs should receive two injections, each of 2.0 ml, separated by an interval of 4-6 weeks.
  • It should be noted that Heptavac P Plus is the recommended vaccine for breeding stock since it provides optimal aid in the control of the predominant clostridial diseases in adult sheep by active immunisation and in young lambs by passive immunisation.
