Avian Polyomavirus Killed Vaccine

Psittimune® APV is recommended for the vaccination of healthy psittacine birds to aid in the prevention of avian polyomavirus infection prior to virus exposure. Young birds should be initially vaccinated at 5 weeks of age. To complete primary immunization a second dose must be given at two to three weeks following the initial vaccination. Annual revaccination is recommended. Susceptible breeders should be vaccinated prior to the laying season.

Description: Psittimune® APV is a patented avian polyomavirus vaccine containing an antigenic isolate of avian polyomavirus. Psittimune® APV is a killed vaccine.

Administration: Vaccinate healthy birds with the appropriate size dose (0.5ml for birds weighing 200gm or greater when adults, 0.25ml for birds weighing less than 200 grams when adults). Vaccine should be administered subcutaneously with a 23 to 26 gauge needle to one side of the caudal end of the breast avoiding the muscle and the keel. Care should be taken not to inject the vaccine into muscle tissue or internal organs or intradermally. Administer the second vaccination on the contralateral side two to three weeks later.

Precautions: Store the vaccine at 35-45°F (2-7°C). Do not freeze. Warming the vaccine to 85-90°F before use reduces stress on the bird. It is essential to shake the vaccine before and during use since the vaccine quickly settles. Shake the bottle of vaccine well before removing each dose with a syringe and needle. Use entire contents when first opened.

Supplied: 1 x 10 dose vial
