INDICATIONS: For use as an aid in the prevention of tetanus. Contains thimerosal as a preservative.

DIRECTIONS: Store at 2 to 7 C. Do not freeze. Shake well before use. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.

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 and consult with a veterinarian.

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

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: For primary immunization, two doses should be administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly approximately 30 days apart. Use intramuscularly for horses, as local reactions are more likely to occur if injected subcutaneously. 

Cattle/horses: 2 doses of 10 ml each at 30 day intervals

Sheep/goats/swine: 2 doses of 1 ml each per cwt. at 30 day intervals

Revaccinate annually using a single dose.
