This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy cattle, 3 months of age or older against disease caused by infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR), bovine virus diarrhea (BVD Type 1 and BVD Type 2), parainfluenza Type 3 (PI3), and bovine respiratory syncytial (BRSV) viruses and Haemophilus somnus.

Directions For Use

Shake well before using. Administer 5 mL intramuscularly in the neck. Revaccinate in 4 to 5 weeks. Vaccinate dairy cows at dry-off. Historically, annual revaccination has been recommended for this product. The need for this booster has not been established. The presence of maternal antibody is known to interfere with the development of active immunity in calves and additional boosters will be required in most young animals. For advice on revaccination frequency, in general or in the face of maternal antibody, consult a veterinarian.

Precautions

Store out of direct sunlight at 2° to 8°C (35° to 46°F). DO NOT FREEZE. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not mix with other products, except as specified on the label. In case of human exposure, contact a physician. Do not vaccinate within 60 days prior to slaughter. Transient swelling may occur at the site of injection. Anaphylactic reactions may occur. Symptomatic treatment: Epinephrine. Contains amphotericin B, gentamicin, and thimerosal as preservatives.
