Bovilis BVD Suspension for injection for cattle.


Bovilis BVD is an inactivated vaccine containing 50 ELISA units (EU) and inducing at least 4.6 log2 VN units per dose of cytopathogenic BVD virus strain C86. The virus is grown in cell culture, inactivated with beta-propiolactone, and adsorbed onto an aluminium salts adjuvant. The vaccine contains methyl parahydroxybenzoate as a preservative and traces of antibiotics and calf serum as remnants from the antigen production.


For active immunisation of cows and heifers from eight months of age onwards to protect the foetus against transplacental infection with Bovine Viral Diarrhoea virus.

Dosage and administration

Before using the vaccine allow it to reach ambient temperature (15-25°C).

Shake well before use. Use sterile syringes and needles.

Intramuscular injection. 2 ml per animal.

All cattle can be vaccinated from an age of eight months onwards.

Can be used during pregnancy.

Foetal protection can be expected if the primary immunisation has been finalised 4 weeks before start of the gestation. Animals which are vaccinated less than 4 weeks before gestation or during the early gestation will not be protected against foetal infection.

Individual vaccination

Basic immunisation

Two vaccinations with an interval of 4 weeks. The second vaccination should be given not later than 4 weeks before the start of the gestation.


One vaccination 4 weeks before start of the next gestation.

Herd vaccination

Basic immunisation

Two vaccinations with an interval of 4 weeks. For use in cattle from eight months of age, all animals should be vaccinated.


One vaccination every 6 months (see Further information).

For the 6-monthly revaccination, the vaccine may be used for reconstitution of Bovilis IBR marker live for use in cattle from 15 months of age (i.e. those that have previously been vaccinated separately with Bovilis BVD and Bovilis IBR marker live) and the following instructions should be used:

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Only healthy animals should be vaccinated.

In very rare cases a slight swelling may be observed for 14 days at the site of injection.

Also in very rare cases transient mild pyrexia may occur. In isolated cases, allergic reactions including anaphylactic shock may occur. In case of anaphylactic reactions, appropriate treatment such as with antihistamine, corticosteroid or adrenaline is recommended.

Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that for the 6-monthly re-vaccination - in cattle from 15 months of age onwards (i.e. those that have previously been vaccinated separately with Bovilis BVD and Bovilis IBR marker live) - this vaccine can be mixed and administered with Bovilis IBR marker live (in Member States where this veterinary medicinal product is authorised). The product literature of Bovilis IBR marker live should be consulted before administration of the mixed products. The adverse effects observed after administration of one dose or an overdose of the mixed vaccines are not different from those described for the vaccines administered separately.

No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product except the product mentioned above. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.
