It has been shown that this product will control Caseous lymphadenitis when sheep are vaccinated prior to exposure to the disease. It has also been shown that little or no benefit can be expected when animals with visible signs of the disease are vaccinated. Those showing infection should be immediately culled from the flock and disposed of or held away from those animals that appear to be in good health.
Slight lameness (soreness) in lambs may be observed, along with lethargy, in a percentage of the mature animals following vaccination. Sheep are inclined to become depressed and may limp after foreign substances are administered or because of increased exertion and stimulation of vaccination. While noticeable, these symptoms usually disappear within 24-48 hours and can be considered minor vaccination reactions. If suggested care is taken in preparing vaccination equipment and in administering the product there should be no abscessation at the site of injection.
PRECAUTIONS: Anaphylactoid reaction may occur following administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent.
In the event of accidental human exposure, consult a physician.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Inject 2 ml subcutaneously in axillary space. Repeat full 2 ml dose in 4 weeks (opposite axillary space). Revaccinate annually using a single dose.
