Uses

Pigs (sows and gilts): Reduction of the reproductive disorders caused by Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (European strain) in a contaminated environment: vaccination of sows and gilts reduces the number of early farrowings and the number of still-births.

Dosage and administration

One dose of 2 ml is administered by deep intramuscular route, in the neck muscles behind the ear, according to the following vaccination scheme:

Primary vaccination

Gilts: 2 injections 3-4 weeks apart, at least 3 weeks before mating.

Sows: 2 injections 3-4 weeks apart (vaccination of all the sows of the herd within a short period is recommended).

Revaccination

One injection at day 60-70 of each gestation, starting with the first pregnancy following primary vaccination.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

For animal treatment only. There are no known contraindications. Apply usual aseptic procedures. Vaccinate only healthy animals. Apply the usual procedures for the handling of animals.

Vaccination may induce a transient oedema (at most 3 cm) lasting generally less than one week, and small local reactions (granulomas), without any effect on the health and reproductive performance of the animal. Larger reactions (up to 7 cm diameter) have been observed occasionally after frequent repeated revaccination. Vaccination may rarely cause hypersensitivity reactions. In such cases, an appropriate symptomatic treatment should be carried out.

Can be used during pregnancy and lactation.

Data are available which demonstrate that this vaccine can be administered on the same day at a separate site, with inactivated vaccines against parvovirosis, influenza and Aujeszky's disease as no adverse effect on the serological response has been observed.

No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product except the products 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.

Withdrawal period

Zero days.
