Manufacturer: Intervet/Merck Animal Health

Injectable A+D Tocopherol (Vitamins A, D3, and E)

Active Ingredient(s): Each mL contains 100,000 I.U. of vitamin A, 10,000 I.U. of vitamin D3 and 300 I.U. of vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopherol, a natural source of vitamin E). Also contains 20% ethyl alcohol and 1% benzyl alcohol (preservative) in an emulsifiable base.

Vital E-A+D Indications

Injectable A+D-Tocopherol is a clear, sterile, non-aqueous solution of vitamin A, vitamin D3 and vitamin E. VITAL E®-A+D is intended as a supplemental source of natural vitamins A, D and E.

Dosage and Administration

Injection by intramuscular or subcutaneous administration only. May be repeated. If the dosage is greater than 5 mL, equally divide the dosage and inject at two different sites.

Suggested Dosage:

Cattle (Dairy and Beef):

Cows and Heifers:

2-3 wks pre-partum

8-10 mL

At calving

8-10 mL

End of lactation

8-10 mL

Precaution(s): Store between 2° and 30°C (36° and 86°F) in a dark place. Store partially used vials under refrigeration (36°-55°F).

Caution(s): Anaphylactoid or allergic reactions, which have resulted in deaths, abortions, and/or premature births, have been reported in individual animals as well as entire herds. Should such reactions or hypersensitivity occur, treat immediately with injection of epinephrine and/or antihistamines.

Do not exceed recommended dosage.

Do not add water to solution.

Warning(s): Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children.

Discussion: Natural vitamin A (carotenes) and tocopherols can be destroyed in feedstuffs through processing, ensiling, and storage. Due to these losses, reduced intakes of fat-soluble vitamins can occur in animals maintained in continual confinement compared to animals allowed to graze lush pasture. Intramuscular or subcutaneous injections offer an efficient and rapid method to increase vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E status of animals.

Vitamin A activity is provided as retinyl palmitate, the biological storage-form of vitamin A, and vitamin E activity is provided as d-alpha-tocopherol, the natural and biologically active form of vitamin E.
