BURSAL DISEASE-NEWCASTLE DISEASE-BRONCHITIS-REOVIRUS VACCINE
Standard & Variant, Mass Type, Killed Virus
BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS is prepared using specific pathogen free (SPF) or approved substrates and contains Newcastle disease virus, infectious bronchitis disease virus (Massachusetts type), two strains of avian reovirus (1733 and 2408), and Standard, GLS, and Delaware (A and E) strains of infectious bursal disease virus, inactivated and suspended in the aqueous phase of an oil adjuvant emulsion.
Breedervac-IV-Plus Indications For Use
BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS is indicated for the vaccination of breeder replacement chickens as an aid in the prevention of Newcastle disease, Infectious Bursal Disease (Standard, Delaware and GLS variants), Massachusetts Type infectious bronchitis and diseases caused by avian reoviruses. The Newcastle and bronchitis fractions of BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS are used primarily for protection of the breeder hen. The IBD fraction is used primarily for early protection of progeny with maternal antibodies, and the Reovirus fraction is used to protect the breeder hen against tenosynovitis and the progeny against malabsorption. Chickens should be in good health when vaccinated. Sick or weak chickens will not develop adequate immunity.
The use of any inactivated vaccine may cause false positive results on Mycoplasma plate tests. Avoid Mycoplasma testing prior to ten weeks post-vaccination.
Breedervac-IV-Plus Dosage And Administration
Allow the vaccine to reach ambient temperature, 16-27°C (60-80°F), shake well before use and periodically during use. Inject 0.5 ml intramuscularly or subcutaneously in chickens at least 3 weeks old, using an 18 gauge x 1/2” or 1/4” needle.
Although this vaccine can be used for primary vaccination at three weeks of age or older, available evidence suggests that the best protection is obtained when it is used for revaccination of chickens previously immunized (primed) with the same type of live virus vaccines. Do not administer this vaccine during the critical egg laying period from onset until after peak production.
Example: Breeder chickens.
Primary vaccination with modified live mild avian reovirus vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age.
Primary vaccination with live bursal disease vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age.
Primary vaccination with live Newcastle and bronchitis vaccines on at least two occasions prior to 12 weeks of age.
These primary vaccinations would then be followed by vaccination with BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS at 16-22 weeks of age. A minimum of four weeks should elapse between the last live virus priming and injection with BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS. Local conditions must be taken into consideration and, where necessary, veterinary advice should be sought.
It is evident that for optimal protection, preceding vaccination with live vaccines (priming) should have taken place. Generally, in flocks vaccinated with BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS, a protective level of immunity will be achieved with only small variations between individual chickens. Revaccination during molt is recommended.
Store in the dark in a refrigerator between 2-7°C (35-45°F). DO NOT FREEZE OR EXPOSE TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
1. TO AVOID HUMAN INJECTION, EXTREME CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN INJECTING ANY OIL EMULSION VACCINE. ACCIDENTAL HUMAN INJECTION MAY CAUSE SERIOUS LOCAL REACTIONS. CONTACT A PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY IF ACCIDENTAL HUMAN INJECTION OCCURS.
2. If it is desired to vaccinate birds during lay, a drop in egg production may occur.
3. Do not administer this vaccine during the critical egg laying period from onset until after peak production.
4. Vaccinate market chickens by subcutaneous route only.
5. Injection of inactivated vaccine into breast muscle may create processing plant problems under certain conditions.
6. Do not vaccinate chickens within 42 days before slaughter.
7. This vaccine contains gentamicin as a preservative.
8. Do not mix this vaccine with any other substances.
9. Use entire contents when first opened.
10. Ensure that vaccination equipment is clean and sterile before use.
