PER DOSE:

Inactivated Escherichia coli (J5): > 50 RED60*; Inactivated Staphylococcus aureus (CP8)

INDICATIONS:

Cows and Heifers: To prevent mastitis.

  • For herd immunisation of healthy cows and heifers, in dairy cattle herds with recurring mastitis problems, to reduce the incidence of sub-clinical mastitis and the incidence and the severity of the clinical signs of clinical mastitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus, coliforms and coagulase-negative staphylococci.
  • The full immunisation scheme induces immunity from approximately day 13 after the first injection until approximately day 78 after the third injection (equivalent to 130 days post-parturition).
  • It can be used during pregnancy and lactation.

SIDE EFFECTS:

  • Slight to moderate transient local reactions may occur after the administration of the vaccine, which disappears within 1 or 2 weeks at most.

    First injection: at 45 days before the expected parturition date.
    Second injection: 35 days thereafter (corresponding to 10 days before the expected parturition date).Third injection: 62 days after the second injection (equivalent to 52 days post-parturition).The full immunisation programme should be repeated with each gestation.
