Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 VL5 may be administered to pregnant cattle provided they were vaccinated, according to label directions, with any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP or PregGuard® GOLD FP vaccine within the past 12 months. Bovi-Shield GOLD FP 5 VL5 may also be administered to calves nursing pregnant cows provided their dams were vaccinated within the past 12 months as described above. To help ensure safety in pregnant cattle, heifers must receive at least 2 doses of any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP or PregGuard 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), PI3, and BRSV. The Campylobacter bacterin is an inactivated suspension of C. fetus. It is combined with an inactivated Leptospira bacterin prepared from whole cultures of the agents indicated. The Campylobacter-Leptospira bacterin is supplied as a diluent for the IBR-BVD-PI3-BRSV vaccine.

Fetal health risks associated with vaccination of pregnant animals with modified live vaccines cannot be unequivocally determined by clinical trials conducted for licensure. Management strategies based on vaccination of pregnant animals with modified live vaccines should be discussed with a veterinarian.
Vaccination of stressed animals should be delayed.
Occasional hypersensitivity reactions may occur up to 18 hours postvaccination. Owners should be advised to observe animals during this period. While this event appears to be rare overall, dairy cattle may be affected more frequently than other cattle. Animals affected may display excessive salivation, incoordination, and/or dyspnea. Animals displaying such signs should be treated immediately with epinephrine or equivalent. In nonresponsive animals, other modes of treatment should be considered.
Contains gentamicin and thimerosal as preservatives.
As with many vaccines, anaphylaxis may occur after use. Initial antidote of epinephrine is recommended and should be followed with appropriate supportive therapy.
Do not mix with other products, except as specified above.
In case of human exposure, contact a physician.
