Emulsibac-SS Indications

For the vaccination of healthy swine against disease conditions associated with Streptococcus suis (serotype 2) organisms. This bacterin has been shown to protect susceptible pigs against challenge with virulent Streptococcus suis (serotype 2) organisms.

DIRECTIONS AND DOSAGE: Shake well. Administer a 1 mL dose intramuscularly to pigs at 10-12 days of age, followed by a 2 mL dose at approximately 3-5 weeks of age. This repeat dose is essential for maximum immune response. For best results, inject into the neck musculature behind the ear. Use sterile syringes and needles. Annual revaccination of breeding swine is recommended.
