Mixing Instructions

CAUTION: THE TRANSFER NEEDLE, INCLUDED IN THE CARTON PACKAGING, IS SHARP AND MAY CAUSE INJURY TO SELF OR ANIMALS IF NOT HANDLED OR DISPOSED OF PROPERLY.

1. Insert needle beyond breather valve into the vial of lyophilized vaccine to remove vacuum.

2. Turn the vial of lyophilized vaccine upside down and fully insert needle into bacterin diluent bottle. Be sure to clear cap with breather valve.

3. Turn attached vial and bottle so the vial of lyophilized vaccine is underneath the bacterin diluent bottle and squeeze enough bacterin diluent into the vial of lyophilized vaccine to rehydrate the vaccine. Mix well.

4. Turn attached bottles so rehydrated vaccine is above bacterin diluent bottle. Squeeze air into rehydrated vaccine vial.

5. Squeeze and release bacterin diluent bottle until all the solution in the rehydrated vaccine vial drains into the bacterin diluent bottle.

6. Separate the vial of lyophilized vaccine and needle from the bacterin diluent bottle. Using the tab, remove the back of the vaccine vial label. Place the separated label over the bacterin diluent bottle label to accurately identify the newly created solution.

Cautions: Store at 2°-7°C (35°-45°F). Do not freeze. Use entire contents immediately after rehydration. Dispose of containers and all unused vaccine according to local biohazardous waste disposal regulations. Use only in healthy cattle. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. Fetal health risks associated with vaccination of pregnant animals with modified live vaccines cannot be unequivocally determined by clinical trials conducted for licensure. Vaccination of pregnant animals with modified live vaccines should be discussed with your veterinarian. If allergic reaction occurs, treat with epinephrine. Contains penicillin, streptomycin & thimerosal as preservatives.
