Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB Indications

Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB is for vaccination of healthy cows and heifers prior to breeding as an aid in preventing persistently infected calves caused by bovine virus diarrhea (BVD) virus Types 1 and 2; abortion caused by infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR, bovine herpesvirus Type 1) virus; respiratory disease caused by IBR, BVD Types 1 and 2, parainfluenza-3 (PI-3), and bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV); BVD Type 2 testicular infection; and leptospirosis caused by Leptospira canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona. A 12-month duration of immunity has been demonstrated against IBR-induced abortion and persistently infected calves caused by BVD Types 1 and 2. In addition, Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB is especially recommended to prevent establishment of L. hardjo in the kidney, thus shedding in the urine, for at least 12 months. Vaccination with this product also prevents establishment of L. hardjo in the genital tract and aids in preventing infection of the fetus. Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB may be administered to pregnant cattle provided they were vaccinated, according to label directions, with any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP vaccine within the past 12 months. Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB may also be administered to calves nursing pregnant cows provided their dams were vaccinated within the past 12 months as described above. Note that the efficacy of Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 L5 HB as an aid in preventing abortion caused by IBR virus and BVD Type 2 testicular infection was demonstrated by intramuscular injection only. To help ensure safety in pregnant cattle, heifers must receive at least 2 doses of any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP product with the second dose administered approximately 30 days prebreeding.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The freeze-dried vaccine is a preparation of modified live virus (MLV) strains of IBR, BVD Types 1 and 2, PI-3 and BRSV. The liquid fraction contains a specially prepared, inactivated and adjuvanted unique strain of Leptospira borgpetersenii serovar hardjo-bovis together with inactivated and adjuvanted cultures of L. pomona, L. grippotyphosa, L. canicola, and L. icterohaemorrhagiae.
