Sheep Rabies Vaccine

Vaccine for healthy dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, goats, horses, ferrets, foxes and in principle all healthy mammals against rabies. Rabies vaccine was for a long time prepared from infected brain tissue, and neurological complications were likely to occur in as many as one in 300 cases. A second-generation vaccine prepared from duck embryo tissue is better tolerated in this respect, and third-generation vaccines prepared in non-neural tissue cultures or in human diploid cell (HDC) vaccines with a progressive improvement in safety have now become the vaccines of choice where they are available.

Any rabies vaccine can apparently cause mild local discomfort and swelling, and animal preparations can result in hypersensitivity reactions, for example pyrexia, serum sickness, or urticaria; sensitization can occur.

Composition

Each dose contains Rabies strain Pasteur RIVM with potency ≥ 2 I.U.

Indications

For the active immunization of healthy dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, goats, horses, ferrets, foxes and in principle all healthy mammals against rabies. It can be used for both prophylactic immunization & post bite therapy.

Dosage and Administration

As in other food animals, the veterinarian should be aware of the potential of injected vaccines to induce injection site lesions including blemishes in show animals. Reaction sites that require trimming at slaughter may result in a significant financial penalty. In general, subcutaneous injection in the caudolateral neck region is preferred, with an injection behind the elbow over the ribs as a possible alternative. Do not administer vaccines over the loin or hindquarters where the valuable meat cuts are located. As always, animals must be properly restrained to minimize struggling and to ensure proper delivery of the full dose of vaccine. The use of excessively long needles over 0.5 inches long should be avoided and they should be changed often. Remember, the needle used to withdraw vaccine from the bottle should not be used for injection. 1ml by subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. Shake well before use.

Features of Sheep Rabies Vaccine

Rabies vaccine is an inactivated virus vaccine prepared either in human diploid cell culture (HDCV) or in purified chick embryo cell culture (PCEC).208 Rabies vaccination is recommended in two situations: as preexposure prophylaxis in persons likely to be exposed to rabies (e.g., veterinarians, forest rangers, travelers who may be at high risk based on countries and activities) and after exposure to animals known or suspected to be rabid. The primary preexposure immunizing course is three doses of rabies vaccine given intramuscularly at 0, 7 days, and 21 to 28 days

For vaccination of healthy cattle, horses and sheep against rabies. Inject 2 ml SQ or IM into healthy animals 3 months of age or older. Revaccinate cattle and horses annually, and sheep one year after first vaccination, then every 3 years.
