Vaccination with Tetanus Toxoid is recommended for healthy domestic animals, not infected with tetanus, to establish an active immunity for prevention against disease.

Protective antibody levels usually occur about two weeks after the second injection of the primary immunization series.

In contrast, administration of Tetanus Antitoxin is recommended for immediate, emergency, passive treatment of exposed animals with an unknown vaccination history or with signs of tetanus infection. Refer to the Tetanus Antitoxin product circular for full information.

PRECAUTIONS: Anaphylactoid reaction may occur following administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Inject subcutaneously or intramuscularly as follows:

Horses & cattle: Two doses of 1ml each
Use intramuscularly for horses, as local reactions are more likely to occur if injected subcutaneously

Sheep, goats, & swine: Two doses of 0.5ml each
Interval between doses should be approximately 30 days.

Revaccinate annually using a single dose.
