Directions For Use

BRONCHITIS VACCINE

MASS. TYPE, LIVE VIRUS

For use in animals only

Recommendation for use: This product is manufactured from SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) eggs and is a live virus vaccine of chicken embryo origin recommended as an aid in the prevention of infectious bronchitis, Mass. type in chickens. Vaccinate chickens at 5 weeks of age or older via the intraocular or intranasal route (vials of 1000 doses only), in the drinking water or by coarse spray (aerosol). Consult with a veterinarian for recommendations on revaccination based on conditions existing in your area at any given time.

Intraocular (eye drop) or intranasal (nostril) administration: For use with vials of 1000 doses only - rehydrate with 30 ml diluent provided. Remove overseal and stopper from the vaccine vial and pour part of the diluent into it. Shake well and pour the vaccine back into the remaining diluent. Place the dropper tip on the diluent bottle. The vaccine is now ready for eye drop or intranasal use.

For eye drop use, hold the bird on its side with one eye turned up. Administer one drop of vaccine into the open eye and hold the bird until it swallows. To prevent injury, avoid touching the bird’s eye with the dropper tip.

For intranasal use, hold the bird’s beak shut and place a finger over one nostril. Administer one drop of vaccine into the other nostril.

Drinking water administration: Remove the overseal and stopper from the vaccine vial and add clean non-sanitized water to it. Shake well and pour the vial contents into a container of non-sanitized water. Dilute the vaccine as outlined in the chart below. A dried skim milk powder should be used as a vaccine stabilizer at the rate of 8.0 g per gallon (2.1 g per liter) of drinking water. Add the skim milk powder to the water prior to reconstitution of the vaccine. Remove medication or sanitizers from the drinking water 24 hours before and 24 hours after vaccination. Rinse waterers with clean non-sanitized water. Remove water from chicks at least 2 hours before vaccination. Provide adequate space so that at least 2/3 of the birds can drink at one time. Add vaccine mixture to the water as per the following chart:
