BotVax B Indications
BotVax B is for the prevention of equine botulism due to Clostridium Botulinum Type B in healthy horses.
DOSAGE: Inject 2.0 mL intramuscularly at monthly intervals for a total of 3 doses. Booster annually with a single 2.0 mL intramuscular dose. Research has demonstrated that pregnant mares immunized during the third trimester of gestation, with the third dose (booster) given 2-4 weeks before parturition, respond with antibody. This antibody is concentrated in colostrum and results in significant passively acquired antibody in normal suckling foals.
ADMINISTRATION: Inject intramuscularly using aseptic technique. Shake well before use.
CAUTIONS: Transitory local reactions at the injection site such as heat and minor swelling may occur. Anaphylactoid reactions may occur. Epinephrine is antidotal. Store at 2°-7°C (35°-45°F). Do not freeze. Use the entire contents when opened. Do not vaccinate food producing animals within 21 days of slaughter.
