AviPro Pox CEO

This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: L.A.H.I.

Fowl Pox Vaccine, Live Virus

U.S. Vet. Lic. No.: 196

Active Ingredient(s): This product is a live virus fowlpox vaccine of chicken embryo origin manufactured from SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) eggs.

Contains neomycin as a preservative.

This vaccine was carefully produced and passed all tests in accordance with the U.S. Government requirements.

AviPro Pox CEO Indications

For the prevention of Fowlpox in chickens. For wing web application.

This vaccine is for administration to chickens 5 weeks of age and older. For laying replacements, the ideal time for administration is when birds are 8 to 20 weeks of age. If administered to birds under 5 weeks of age, revaccination is necessary.

The older the birds at the time of administration, the more durable is the immunity produced.

Dosage and Administration

Preparation of Vaccine: The active agent of the vaccine is supplied in a dried form in the bottle labelled ‘Vaccine’. Open the bottle by removing the aluminum tear seal and the rubber stopper. Open the diluent and pour a small quantity into the bottle of vaccine, replace the rubber stopper, and shake well. Pour the mixture back into the bottle of diluent and shake mixture vigorously. Do not open or mix the vaccine until ready for use.

Method of Vaccination: Vaccination is accomplished by dipping the double needle in the mixed vaccine and piercing the “web of the wing” from the underside. Do not apply through feathers, muscle or bone. The applicator must be redipped between each application.

Birds from the flock should be examined for evidence of a “take” to ensure that the vaccine was applied properly.

The evidence of a successful vaccination will appear at the point of vaccination in from 7 to 10 days after vaccination. Brownish, black scabs will be found on both the under and upper surfaces of the web of the wing through which the needle vaccinator was thrust.

Contraindication(s): Birds to be vaccinated should be free of all diseases, including the latent form of diseases such as chronic respiratory disease (CRD), coccidiosis, blackhead, parasitic disease, etc.

Precaution(s): Keep vaccine in the dark, between 2-7°C (35-45°F).

Use entire contents when first opened. Burn this container and all unused contents.

Caution(s): When administered to susceptible birds, a mild form of the disease results which stimulates immunity. No vaccine confers immediate protection against fowl pox. While immunity begins to develop immediately, it takes 2 to 3 weeks for birds to establish maximum immunity to fowlpox following vaccination, during which time they should not be placed in contaminated premises nor otherwise exposed to fowlpox.

All susceptible birds on any farm should be vaccinated at the same time. If this is not possible, individual lots may be vaccinated if strict isolation and separate caretakers are provided for the vaccinated and unvaccinated lots of birds.

It is imperative that the user of this product comply with the indications for use, contraindications, and method of vaccination stated on the direction sheet. The vaccine must be prepared and administered as directed to obtain best results.

Warning(s): Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.

Care should be taken to avoid contaminating hands, eyes and clothing with the vaccine.

For veterinary use only.
