Bovilis BVD has been proven to prevent unborn calves from becoming persistently infected (PI). get a free eco-matic vaccinater

Bovilis BVD is used for vaccination of cows and heifers to protect their foetuses against infection with Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) virus inside the cow's womb. Bovilis BVD has been proven to prevent unborn calves from becoming persistently infected (PI). This is most important as PI calves either die soon after birth or act as a source of infection for the rest of the herd. Infecting the rest of the herd may lead to abortions, reduced milk yield and increased return to service, poorer pregnancy rates, mastitis, coughing and other problems in cows and the creation of more PI calves.

Presentation:

Bovilis BVD is an inactivated vaccine containing an equivalent of 7.7 log10 TCID50 per dose of cytopathogenic BVD virus strain C86. The virus is grown in cell culture, inactivated with beta-propiolactone, and adsorbed onto an aluminium salts adjuvant. The vaccine contains methyl parahydroxybenzoate as a preservative and traces of antibiotics and calf serum as remnants from the antigen production.

Uses:

For active immunisation of cows and heifers to protect the foetus against transplacental infection with Bovine Viral Diarrhoea virus.

Bovilis BVD containsan inactivated antigen of cytopathogenic BVD virus strain C86. Bovilis BVD may only be prescribed and administered by your veterinary surgeon from whom advice should be sought.

Further information:

Foetal protection has been demonstrated at 6 months post vaccination and can therefore be expected if the primary immunisation has been completed 4 weeks before the start of the gestation. If a herd is vaccinated on the same day, then individuals that are not about 4 weeks pre-gestation may not be protected against foetal infection. Where this is the case, whole herd re-vaccination should be undertaken every 6 months.

BVD challenge data in non-pregnant animals shows protection against cell-free viraemia 12 months after primary vaccination.

A good immune response is reliant upon the reaction of an immunogenic agent and a fully competent immune system. Immunogenicity of the vaccine will be reduced by poor storage or inappropriate administration. Immunocompetence of the animal may be compromised by a variety of factors including poor health, nutritional status, genetic factors, concurrent drug therapy and stress.
Dosage and Administration:

Bovilis BVD may be given to cattle from eight months of age onwards. Each animal should be given 2 ml of vaccine by intramuscular injection. The vaccine may be administered to pregnant cattle.

Recommended vaccination programme:

Primary immunisation

Two vaccinations 4 weeks apart. Foetal protection can be expected if the primary immunisation course has been completed 4 weeks before the start of the gestation. Animals which are vaccinated less than 4 weeks before gestation or during early gestation, may not be protected against foetal infection.

Revaccination

One vaccination. Foetal protection can be expected if the vaccine is administered 4 weeks before the start of the next gestation.

For whole herd vaccination, 6 monthly vaccinations may be advised (see Further information) to ensure that all animals fulfil these requirements.
Contra-indications & warnings:

Do not use in debilitated animals.

A slight swelling may be observed for 14 days at the site of injection. Transient, mild pyrexia may occur.

No information is available on the safety and efficacy of the concurrent use of this vaccine with any other. It is therefore recommended that no other vaccines should be administered within 14 days before or after vaccination with this product.

Withdrawal period - 0 days

For animal treatment only. Keep out of the reach of children.
