Inactivated Emulsion Vaccine Against Porcine Pasteurellosis

Description

The vaccine is a slightly viscous emulsion of white colour. During storage creaming can be observed. The emulsion becomes homogeneous again after thorough bottle shaking.

Indications

The vaccine is used for prevention of pasteurellosis in pigs on affected farms caused by bacteria Pasteurella multocida (serogroups А and D)

Route of administration

20-25-day old piglets shall be vaccinated twice (dose is 0.5 cm3 per administration, only submuscularly into a neck, the interval between the first and the second injection shall be 20 – 40 days). Pregnant sows shall be vaccinated once, 30-45 days before farrowing. They are vaccinated only intramuscularly behind the ear (dose 1cm3 per administration). Vaccination of sows does not exclude following vaccination of piglets. Products derived from vaccinated animals can be used without any restrictions.

Immunity

Vaccinated animals develop strong immunity: on day 20-25 post second administration in piglets; or on day 20-25 in sows after a single administration which lasts for 12 months.

Vaccinated sows transmit specific immune factors via colostrum to their piglets, thus, protecting them from pasteurellosis for a month after birth.

Storage conditions

The vaccine shall be stored in a dry, dark place at the temperature of 2 - 8oC. Vaccine shelf life is 12 months from production date.
