Fowl Pox Vaccine, Live Virus
U.S. Vet. Lic. No.: 368
Contents: POXIMUNE® contains live fowl pox virus vaccine for the vaccination of chickens as an aid in the prevention of fowl pox.
Contains gentamicin and amphotericin B as preservatives.
Administer by wing web to healthy, susceptible chickens at least eight weeks of age but at least four weeks prior to the start of egg production as an aid in the prevention of fowl pox due to fowl pox virus.
Dosage and AdministrationRemove seal and stopper from vaccine vial and diluent vial. Pour entire contents of diluent vial into vaccine vial, insert stopper, and shake well. The vaccine is ready for use and should be used within one hour. Hold each individual bird and spread the wing with the underside facing up. Dip the applicator into the vaccine so that the grooves fill with liquid and deliver 0.01 mL per bird. Insert the double-pronged applicator into the web portion of the wing avoiding blood vessels, muscle, and bone. Seven to ten days after vaccination, observe several chickens for evidence of “takes” that include swelling and/or scab formation at the site of injection.
Precaution(s): Federal regulations prohibit repackaging or sale of the contents of this package in fractional units. Do not accept if seal is broken.
