LAWSONIA INTRACELLULARIS VACCINE

Avirulent Live Culture

100 AND 500 DOSE SIZE

INDICATIONS: This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy swine 3 weeks of age or older against ileitis due to Lawsonia intracellularis. The duration of immunity for this product is at least 4 months. For more information regarding safety data, see productdata.aphis.gov.

Contact a veterinarian for more information on vaccination frequency. This product has not been tested in pregnant animals.

Administration And Dosage

Thaw vaccine, shake well, and administer the vaccine in the drinking water that would be consumed in about 6-8 hours using appropriate water consumption charts. Vaccine stabilizer should be used to help insure water is free of antibacterial agents. Commercial stabilizers such as ARKO StableDYEser are used according to directions.

DRINKING WATER ADMINISTRATION - 100 Dose

1. Medications and disinfecting products in the drinking water or feed are not compatible with NITRO ILEITIS VAC. Discontinue their use at least 3 days before vaccinating and do not resume their use for 3 days following vaccination.

2. Use clean, cool, nonchlorinated water in accordance with the mixing information. Skim milk or an oral vaccine stabilizer should be used in the water line to remove traces of antibacterial agents. Mix 134 grams (2 cups) of powdered skim milk per 3.8 liters (1 gallon) of stock solution to be delivered via a 1:128 water proportioner. Commercial stabilizers should be used according to the directions.

3. Thaw the vaccine in cool - lukewarm water. Immediately before administration shake well and remove aluminum seal and stopper. Use all vaccine after thawing. Do not refreeze.

4. Dosage is based on the number of pigs. Use at least one dose of vaccine per pig being vaccinated. Add the vaccine to the calculated amount of drinking water and administer immediately. Generally water may be withheld a short time prior to vaccinating to encourage the pigs to drink. Emptying the water lines prior to vaccination also assures of providing a full dose of vaccine to the waterers on the end of the water line. The vaccine should be administered orally in an amount of drinking water that would be consumed by thirsty pigs in approximately 6 - 8 hours. Make sure all the vaccine is consumed by the pigs. Provide ample water space so that all the pigs can drink easily.

5. Daily water consumption for each vaccination needs to be determined just prior to use. Water consumption is affected by weather, management conditions and the age of the pigs. When specific water consumption information is not available, please refer to a reference table. The following table will serve as a guideline to determine the amount of water to be used with the vaccine if more specific information is not available.
