Precaution(s): Store in dark at 2° to 7°C.
Caution(s): Anaphylactic reactions sometime follow administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenaline or equivalent. Use the entire contents when first opened.
A condition referred to as “serum hepatitis” infrequently occurs in horses. The literature associates this partially with the injection of biologics containing equine serum or tissue. This connection is based, at the present time, upon supposition and not upon scientific evidence as efforts to experimentally reproduce such a condition in horses have not been successful. It seems prudent, however, in view of the published implications, to make horse owners aware of it.
For veterinary use only.
Warning(s): Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.
Presentation: 100 mL and 250 mL vials.
