Type 10
Modified Live Virus

Cat. #19204    100ml    50 Dose


INDICATIONS: For use in healthy sheep and goats as an aid in the prevention of Type 10 Bluetongue virus infection. Contains penicillin and streptomycin as preservatives.

DIRECTIONS: Store at 2 to 7 C. Rehydrate the vaccine (with accompanying diluent) immediately before use. Shake well after rehydration. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not administer to pregnant animals. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.  

Sterilize syringes and needles by boiling in clean water do not use disinfectants or detergents.  Incidence of Bluetongue is seasonal, with animals contracting the disease mostly in August and September due to the virus being transmitted by biting insects.

Treatment is almost totally ineffective and preventive vaccination, late in the Spring or in the early Summer not only is recommended, but becomes vitally important. 

Lambs from immune ewes carry a degree of resistance to Bluetongue which may last as long as 3 months. Lambs should be vaccinated close to weaning time as this is the time when maternal antibodies disappear. If vaccinated too young, the maternal antibodies may interfere with proper active immune response. 

All breeding stock should be protected with Bluetongue Vaccine approximately three weeks prior to breeding or after lambing.

PRECAUTIONS: In the event of accidental human exposure, consult a physician. Burn, autoclave or chemically disinfect container and all unused contents.

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

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Inject 2 ml subcutaneously or intramuscularly in axillary space (between foreleg and body).
