Description

Lambivac vaccine – Target Species – Sheep and pigs.

Indications for use
Sheep
For the active immunisation of sheep to:
– reduce clinical signs and mortality due to the toxin of Clostridium tetani (Tetanus);
– reduce mortality due to the epsilon toxin of Clostridium perfringens (Pulpy kidney);
– induce a serological response against the beta toxin of Clostridium perfringens (Struck, Lamb dysentery).
The vaccine may be used in pregnant ewes to provide passive immunisation of lambs, provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 12 hours of life, to:
– reduce clinical signs and mortality due to the toxin of Costridium tetani (Tetanus);
– reduce mortality due to the epsilon toxin of Clostridium perfringens (Pulpy kidney)
– induce a serological response against the beta toxin of Clostridium perfringens (Lamb dysentery).
Significant levels of immunity cannot be expected until two weeks after the second dose of vaccine in the primary vaccination course.
From experience from field use, the duration of active immunity in lambs and sheep is expected to last one year. The duration of passive protection in lambs is approximately 12 weeks provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 12 hours of life.
Pigs
For active immunisation of sows against tetanus caused by Clostridium tetani.
Significant levels of immunity cannot be expected until two weeks after the second dose of vaccine in the primary vaccination course. From experience from field use, the duration of active immunity in pigs is expected to last one year.
The vaccine may be used in pregnant sows to provide passive immunisation of piglets, provided that the piglets receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 12 hours of life, to:
– reduce clinical signs and mortality due to the toxin of Clostridium tetani (Tetanus);
– induce a serological response against to the toxin of Clostridium perfringens type C (Enterotoxemia).
The duration of the passive protection in piglets is 14 days.
Contraindications
None.
Special warnings for each target species
The nutritional and metabolic status of pregnant ewes is extremely important at the time of vaccination. If in doubt, advice should be sought from a veterinary surgeon.
No information is available on the efficacy of the vaccine in young animals with maternally derived antibodies.
Special precautions for use
In any group of animals, a small number of individuals may fail to respond to vaccination as a result of immunological incompetence. Satisfactory immune responses will only be attained in healthy animals, thus it is important to avoid vaccination of animals which have an intercurrent infection or metabolic disorder.
When handling animals, stress should be avoided, particularly during the later stages of pregnancy when there is a risk of inducing abortion and metabolic disorders.
Operator warnings
In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
