Poulvac® Cholera PM-1 contains the known avirulent strain of Pasteurella multocida designated PM-1, as a freeze-dried preparation sealed under vacuum.

INDICATIONS FOR USE: Poulvac Cholera PM-1 is indicated as an aid in 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.

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). Administer 2000 doses of vaccine by the wing-web route to 2000 chickens. Rehydrate the vaccine with the supplied diluent bottle (20 mL). Rehydrate only one bottle at a time and use the entire contents within 2 hours. After mixing the vaccine thoroughly, a dose of 0.01 mL should be administered to each bird by dipping the applicator needle in the vaccine and piercing 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.
