Manufacturer: Zoetis

Erysipelothrix Rhusiopathiae Vaccine

Avirulent Live Culture

For Use In Swine

For use in healthy swine 6 weeks of age or older as an aid in the prevention of disease caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae.

For Veterinary Use Only

DOSE: For oral use only. Resuspend the lyophilized cake with the supplied diluent. Dilute in an appropriate volume of skim milk or rehydrated non-medicated milk replacer and then administer at 29.6 mL per 3.8 L (1 ounce per gallon US) non-chlorinated drinking water using a proportional liquid dispenser. Vaccinate pigs at 6 weeks of age or older with 2 doses given 2 weeks apart.

Dosage is based on number of pigs not weight of pigs. Use at least one dose of vaccine per pig being vaccinated.

Directions

PREPARE THE PIGS AND THE WATER SYSTEM

1. Remove all disinfectants, medications, and sanitizers from feed and water system at least 72 hours prior to vaccination to assure antibacterial agents are removed. All materials used in administering this vaccine must be free of antibiotic or disinfectant residue to prevent inactivation of this vaccine. Do not administer this vaccine in chlorinated water.

2. Withhold drinking water at least 8 to 10 hours (overnight) prior to vaccination.

3. Flush water system (including medication proportioner) with clean skim milk or non-medicated milk replacer to remove all traces of antibacterial agents.

PREPARE PROPORTIONER STOCK SOLUTION

4. The amount of stock solution needed for the proportioner is calculated based on how much the pigs will drink. Determine the total weight of pigs to be vaccinated. (No. Pigs X average weight per pig = total weight). Go to Table 1 to look up the amount of stock solution you’ll need for pigs this size and number.

5. Add the amount of freshly prepared skim milk or non-medicated milk replacer from Table 1 to the stock solution container.

MIX THE VACCINE INTO THE STOCK SOLUTION

6. Resuspend the lyophilized vaccine in the accompanying diluent immediately before use. USE AT LEAST ONE DOSE OF VACCINE PER PIG.

7. Add the vaccine into the stock solution container and rinse the vial(s).

8. Mix vaccine thoroughly into the stock solution.

VACCINATE

9. Insert proportioner hose into the stock solution, set proportioner to deliver 29.6 mL per 3.8 L (1 ounce per gallon US), and start water flow. Continue until all of the vaccine stock solution has been administered (about 4-8 hours). Swirl vaccine solution each half hour or so during vaccination to ensure uniform dosing.

DO NOT MEDICATE OR DISINFECT WATER SYSTEM FOR 72 HOURS PRIOR TO AND 72 HOURS FOLLOWING VACCINATION.

* Use this table to look up the amount of stock solution you’ll need so all pigs drink enough during the vaccination period. Because pigs drink 8-12% of their body weight per day, the stock solution amount depends on the total number and total weight of the pigs. But the amount of vaccine you use is always one dose per pig, regardless of weight.
