Directions For Use
FOWL LARYNGOTRACHEITIS VACCINE
MODIFIED LIVE VIRUS
For use in animals only
Recommendation for use:
This product is a live virus vaccine of chicken embryo origin manufactured from SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) eggs recommended as an aid in the prevention of infectious laryngotracheitis. When administered to susceptible chickens, a mild form of the disease results, which stimulates immunity.
Direction for use:
Vaccinate chickens at 5 weeks of age or older using the intraocular or intranasal route (vials of 1000 doses only), or the aerosol route. Consult with a veterinarian for recommendations on revaccination based on conditions existing in your area at any given time. In the event of a natural outbreak of laryngotracheitis on a farm, this vaccine should be used immediately to help stop the outbreak. Unaffected chickens on the farm should be vaccinated first, followed by the pen of chickens in which the outbreak occurred.
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.
Coarse spray (aerosol) administration:
Rehydrate the vaccine with cool distilled water in an amount sufficient enough to vaccinate the required number of birds according to the directions of the spray cabinet or field spray manufacturer.
Field spray vaccination should be used only in houses that can be tightly closed. Close all windows, doors, vents, etc. and turn off fans. Spray each 1000 doses of vaccine directly into the faces of 1000 birds. Leave house closed for at least 15 minutes after spraying. Always use appropriate personal protective equipment during vaccination.
Store at 2° to 8°C (35° to 46°F).
Vaccinate only healthy birds.
If there are susceptible laying birds on the premises, there is the possibility that the virus might spread from the vaccinated to the susceptible birds and affect egg production.
Use entire contents when a vial is first opened.
Inactivate unused contents before disposal.
Do not mix with other products, except as specified on the label.
Keep permanent vaccination records, including vaccine serial number.
Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.
Care should be taken to avoid contaminating hands, eyes and clothing with the vaccine.
