Features of Ovine Ecthyma Vaccine

Recommended for vaccinating both sheep and goats against sore mouth. It is advisable to vaccinate each new lamb and kid crop. Range lambs moving into feedlots should be vaccinated at least 10 days prior to shipment. Vaccine is applied to the skin inside the flank after scarifying with notched handle of the applicator.

 Indications

Recommended for vaccinating both sheep and goats against disease caused by ovine ecthyma virus or against sore mouth infection.

Dosage and Administration

It is advisable to vaccinate each new lamb and kid crop because dried scabs retain the infective virus which is resistant to heat and cold and can be expected to survive from year to year. Exposure to infection can occur during shipping. Range lambs moving into feedlots should be vaccinated at least 10 days before shipment to prevent the spread of the disease after arrival. Normally only healthy animals should be vaccinated but experience has shown that in outbreaks of sore mouth, vaccination of the infected sheep and lambs tends to shorten the course of disease.

OVINE ECTHYMA VACCINE is a live virus vaccine. Do not use within 24 hours of dipping or spraying.

Rehydrating: Rehydrate the vaccine just prior to use. Contents of the diluent vial may be withdrawn with a sterile syringe and needle, without removing the stoppers, and transferred to the bottle of dried vaccine. If a syringe is not convenient the aluminum seals may be pried off the bottles with a pocket knife and the diluent poured into the vaccine bottle. Shake the vaccine bottle until the dried virus substance is completely restored to liquid form. Live virus products contain a stabilizer that may slow rehydration slightly but complete liquefaction will take place within a few moments. The vaccine is then ready to use. When rehydrating the vaccine use only the diluent that is supplied with the product. The bottle of vaccine contains 100 doses. Select a wool free area of skin, such as the inside of the flank and scarify the outer layer by scratching with the notched handle of the applicator furnished as a part of the package. Scratching need not be deep enough to cause bleeding but should be sufficient to adequately roughen the skin. An area of at least one (1) square inch should be scarified. The vaccine can be applied by dipping the brush into the vaccine bottle or by placing a drop of vaccine on the scarified area and brushing vigorously.

Precautions

Read all warnings and cautions on label. For livestock use only.
