Tetanus Toxoid

This treatment applies to the following species:
Company: Zoetis

For vaccination of healthy horses, sheep and swine as an aid in the prevention of tetanus.

ADMINISTRATION AND DOSAGE: Horses, inject one 1 mL dose intramuscularly using aseptic technique. Administer a second 1 mL dose 4 to 8 weeks after the first dose. Revaccinate annually using one 1 mL dose. For sheep, swine and smaller horses (such as Shetland ponies or miniature breeds), administer a 0.5 mL dose according to the above schedule for horses.

The MetaStim® adjuvant is added to enhance the immune response and to promote the proper rate of vaccine absorption following inoculation.

Protective tetanus antibody titers usually occur two weeks after the second injection of the initial series. In the event of injury during the course of the initial vaccination program, or if annual boosters have not been given, a prophylactic dose of at least 1500 units of tetanus antitoxin should be given.

Tetanus Toxoid Caution

Store in the dark at 2° to 7°C (35° to 45°F). AVOID FREEZING. SHAKE WELL. Transitory local reactions at the injection site may occur. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. In case of anaphylactoid reaction, administer epinephrine.

Formalin is used as an inactivating agent.

Formalin, thimerosal, neomycin and polymyxin B added as preservatives.
