Protech Bb Killed Vaccine 25's
For the immunisation of dogs against Bordetella bronchiseptica infection, a contributing factor to the canine cough syndrome.
INDICATIONS FOR USE
The vaccine is used for the immunisation of dogs against colonisation of the upper and lower respiratory tract, nose and throat with Bordetella bronchiseptica. It may be given alone or used as a diluent for other vaccines. For optimal effect on the incidence and transmission of infectious tracheobronchitis (canine cough) vaccination with a multicomponent vaccine containing canine distemper virus, canine parainfluenza virus and canine adenovirus type 2 is recommended.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
This product should not be used in dogs when they are:
- Incubating an infectious disease
- seriously debilitated by another infectious disease, parasitic infestation or malnutrition; or
- under treatment with immunosuppressive drugs.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
The vaccine is injected subcutanaously.
A 1ml dose (one syringe) is recommended for dogs of all ages.
Gentle massage at the site of injection will help to disperse the vaccine.
For the primary immunisation, puppies and dogs should be given two doses of vaccine with an interval of 4 weeks between doses.
The epidemiology of each disease, the persistence of maternal antibody and the dog's history must all be considered when deciding on a vaccination program for a particular animal.
Annual booster vaccinations are recommended to maintain adequate immunity, and a booster is recommended before exposure to possible sources of infection, such as shows, boarding kennels or obedience classes, especially if more than six months has elapsed since the last dose of vaccine was administered.
DEVELOPMENT OF IMMUNITY
Immunity develops about ten days to two weeks following the second dose of vaccine in sero-negative dogs.
Vaccine is issued in packs of 25 x 1 mslyringes.
Store between 2-8°C (Refrigerate. DO NOT FREEZE). Protect from light.
Dispose of empty syringes and needles by immediately placing into a designated and appropriately labelled "sharps' container.
