Recommendations For Use

This product is a live vaccine containing a chicken embryo propagated bursal disease virus and recommended as an aid in the prevention of Infectious bursal (Gumboro) disease in chickens. When administered to susceptible chickens, the vaccine stimulates immunity. It is recommended for administration by the drinking water route.

AviPro IBD Extreme Indications For Use

This vaccine is recommended as an aid in the protection of healthy chickens 3 weeks of age or older. Check with your poultry pathologist before vaccinating chickens suspected of having been recently exposed to infectious bursal disease.

Preparation Of Vaccine For Drinking Water Use

Remove the aluminum overseal and stopper and add clean non-sterilized water. Replace the stopper and shake well. Pour the contents into a container of non-sanitized water. Shake well and 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 grams per gallon of water. The powdered milk is added prior to the reconstitution of the vaccine.

Method Of Vaccination

Withhold all medication and disinfectants from the drinking water 24 hours before and 24 hours after vaccination. Rinse waterers with clean non-sanitized water and remove all water from chicks for at least two hours prior to vaccination. Provide adequate space so that at least two-thirds of the birds can drink at one time. Add mixture to water as per the following chart:

Distribution in each state shall be limited to authorized recipients designated by proper state officials - under such additional conditions as these may require.

Recommended use shall be restricted to premises having history of the disease. All susceptible chickens on any farm should be vaccinated at the same time. If this is not possible, individual lots may be vaccinated if strict isolation and caretakers are provided for the vaccinated and unvaccinated lots of chickens. Care should be taken to avoid contaminating your hands, eyes and clothing with the vaccine. It is imperative that the user of this product comply with the "Indications for use" and "Methods of vaccination" stated on this direction sheet. The vaccine must be prepared and administered as directed to obtain best results.


Store vaccine between 2-7°C (35-45°F).


Vaccinate only healthy birds. If there are susceptible chickens on the premises, there is a possibility that the virus might spread from the vaccinated to the susceptible chickens and affect egg production. The ability of this vaccine to produce satisfactory results may depend on many factors, including, but not limited to, health and responsiveness of individual birds, the degree of exposure, conditions of storage and handling by the user, and the administration of the vaccine.
