Manufacturer: Elanco (Aqua Health)

Aeromonas salmonicida, Vibrio anguillarum-ordalii-salmonicida Bacterin

For Veterinary Use Only

www.aqua.novartis.com

Contains formalin inactivated cultures of Aeromonas salmonicida, Vibrio anguillarum serotypes I & II, Vibrio ordalii and Vibrio salmonicida serotypes I & II in liquid emulsion with an oil based adjuvant.

USES: As an aid in the prevention of furunculosis, vibriosis, and cold water vibriosis by injection of healthy salmonids.

VACCINATION PROGRAM: This bacterin has been shown to be safe and effective when administered by intraperitoneal injection to salmonids 10 g or larger. Vaccination should precede exposure of vaccinates to the disease agents by 400 degree-days (number of days multiplied by the mean water temperature [°C] during period). As with any vaccination, fish undergo stressful conditions that can cause fungal infections in salmonids. Normal precautionary fungal treatment measures should be taken pre and post vaccination to help prevent fungal infections.

Dosage and Administration

Anaesthetize fish to immobilize and administer a 0.05 mL injection intraperitoneally one fin length ahead of the pelvic fins along the midline. Allowing the vaccine to warm to room temperature (15-20°C) may facilitate injection. Withhold food from fish for 48 hours prior to vaccination.

CAUTIONS:

1. Shake well before use.

2. Store in original container at 2-8°C (35-46°F). DO NOT FREEZE.

3. Use entire contents when first opened.

4. Vaccinate healthy fish only.

5. Do not vaccinate within 60 days of slaughter.

6. If accidental injection of the operator occurs, the operator should seek medical attention immediately.

7. Dispose of any unused product according to local waste disposal regulations and/or requirements.
