AVIAN ENCEPHALOMYELITIS-CHICKEN ANEMIA VIRUS-FOWL POX VACCINE

Live & Modified Live Virus

DIRECTIONS FOR USE, READ CAREFULLY

Wing Web Stick Route

Description

This vaccine is a live virus vaccine containing avian encephalomyelitis virus prepared from the Calnek strain, a modified fowl pox virus, and chicken anemia virus prepared from a modified U.S. field isolate. The vaccine is packaged in two separate units. One is a vial containing freeze-dried avian encephalomyelitis virus and fowl pox virus (TREMVAC®-FP). The second is a vial containing chicken anemia virus suspension (CAV-VAC®) to be used as the wing web diluent.

Tremvac-FP-CAV Indications For Use

This combination vaccine is indicated for the immunization of breeder chickens for prevention of disease due to avian encephalomyelitis virus and fowl pox virus. The chicken anemia virus portion aids in the prevention of disease due to chicken infectious anemia in progeny of vaccinated breeders. The vaccine should be administered one time to breeder chickens via the wing web stick method from 10 to 12 weeks of age.

WARNING: USE OF THIS PRODUCT IN CHICKENS YOUNGER THAN THREE WEEKS OF AGE MAY CAUSE CLINICAL SIGNS OF CHICKEN ANEMIA. DO NOT VACCINATE BREEDER CHICKENS IN LAY.

Preparation Of Vaccine

DO NOT OPEN THE VACCINE UNTIL READY TO BEGIN VACCINATION. USE VACCINE IMMEDIATELY AFTER OPENING.

1. Remove the tear-off seal and stopper from the vial containing the freeze-dried TREMVAC®-FP.

2. Remove the seal and stopper from the CAV-VAC® vial.

3. Pour one-half of the CAV-VAC® from the vial into TREMVAC®-FP vial. Insert the rubber stopper and shake until dissolved.

4. Pour the dissolved TREMVAC®-FP into the CAV-VAC® vial. Re-insert the rubber stopper and shake well. The vaccine is now ready for use.

Wing-web Administration

FOR CHICKENS FROM 10 TO 12 WEEKS OF AGE

1. Vaccine is applied to the web of the wing. Use the enclosed two-pronged applicator.

2. A dose of 0.01 mL should be administered to each bird by dipping the applicator in the vaccine mixture, allowing the applicator grooves to fill with liquid, and stabbing the webbed portion of the wing from beneath. Avoid feathered areas of the web.

3. Periodically during use, re-insert stopper and shake vaccine well.

4. At about 7 to 10 days after vaccination, a few birds should be examined for takes. A good take reaction, indicating that a satisfactory vaccination job was done, shows swelling in the skin at the point of vaccination with scab formation. The scabs will fall off about 2 to 3 weeks following vaccination.

Tremvac-FP-CAV Caution

1. Do not vaccinate within 21 days of slaughter or 6 weeks prior to onset of or during lay.

2. VACCINATE ONLY HEALTHY CHICKENS. Although disease may not be evident, concurrent disease conditions may cause complications or reduce immunity.

3. All susceptible chickens on the same premises should be vaccinated at the same time.

4. Efforts should be taken to reduce stress conditions at the time of vaccination.

5. Do not spill or splash the vaccine.

6. Do not use less than one dose per chicken.

9. Burn containers and all unused contents.

10. This vaccine contains gentamicin and amphotericin B as preservatives.

11. Following vaccination, virus may be shed in the feces. Thus, care should be taken to avoid spread of the vaccine virus to young chickens or to unexposed chickens in lay.
