READ IN FULL

Description

Poulvac® Cholera PM-1 contains the known avirulent isolate of Pasteurella multocida designated PM-1, as a freeze-dried preparation sealed under vacuum. The strain has been tested in chickens for protection against challenge with Type 1 (X-73) of P. multocida.

Poulvac Cholera PM-1 Indications For Use

Poulvac® Cholera PM-1 is indicated for the prevention of disease due to P. multocida Type 1 infection (fowl cholera) in chickens. Chickens should be in good health when vaccinated and not under any environmental, physical or social stress. Sick or weak chickens will not develop adequate immunity. Chickens should be 10 to 12 weeks of age at initial vaccination by the wing-web route. Revaccination should be performed between 6 to 8 weeks following the initial vaccination.

Poulvac Cholera PM-1 Dosage And Administration

Poulvac® Cholera PM-1 should be refrigerated until use and not rehydrated until immediately ready for use. Administer 1000 doses of vaccine by the wing-web route to 1000 chickens. Rehydrate the vaccine with the supplied diluent bottle (10 ml). Rehydrate only one bottle at a time and use the entire contents within 2 hours. After mixing the vaccine thoroughly, dip the applicator needle in the vaccine and pierce the webbed portion of the underside of the wing. Avoid contacting feathers as this will wipe the vaccine off the needle. Avoid piercing muscle or bone tissue. Re-dip the applicator needle in the vaccine before each application. Mix the vaccine periodically during the vaccination period.

Storage Conditions

Store in the dark in a refrigerator between 2° and 7°C (35° and 45°F). DO NOT FREEZE.
