Suvaxyn Circo+MH RTU Emulsion for injection for pigs.
For active immunisation of pigs from 3 weeks of age against porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) to reduce viral load in blood and lymphoid tissues and faecal shedding caused by infection with PCV2.
For active immunisation of pigs over the age of 3 weeks against Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae to reduce lung lesions caused by infection with M. hyopneumoniae.
Onset of immunity
from 3 weeks after vaccination.
Duration of immunity
23 weeks after vaccination (PCV2).
16 weeks after vaccination (Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae).
Dosage and administration
One dose of 2 ml per animal should be administered intramuscularly in the neck behind the ear to pigs from 3 weeks of age.
Advice on correct administration
Shake vaccine well before administration and intermittently during the process of vaccination.
The use of a multi-dosing syringe is recommended. Use vaccination devices according to the manufacturer's instructions. The vaccine is to be administered aseptically. During storage, a slight black deposit may appear and the emulsion may separate into two distinct phases. Upon shaking, the black deposit disappears and the emulsion becomes homogenous again.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc:
No information is available on the safety of this vaccine in breeding boars. Do not use in breeding boars.
The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during pregnancy or lactation. Do not use during pregnancy and lactation.
Vaccinate only healthy animals.
No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product. 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.
Do not mix with any other veterinary medicinal product.
A transient increase in body temperature (on average 1°C) is very common during the first 24 hours after vaccination. In individual pigs the temperature increase compared to pre-treatment may commonly exceed 2°C. This resolves spontaneously within 48 hours without treatment. Immediate mild hypersensitivity-like reactions may occur uncommonly after vaccination, resulting in transient clinical signs such as vomiting, diarrhoea or depression. These clinical signs normally resolve without treatment. Anaphylaxis may occur in very rare cases. In case of such reactions, appropriate treatment is recommended.
Local tissue reactions in the form of swelling at the injection site are common and may last for up to 2 days. The area of local tissue reactions is in general below 2 cm in diameter. In a laboratory study, a post-mortem examination of the injection site, performed 4 weeks after the administration of a single dose of the vaccine, revealed a mild inflammatory response, as evidenced by the absence of tissue necrosis and little fibrosis.
The frequency of possible adverse effects is defined using the following convention:
- very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reaction(s) during the course of one treatment)
- common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals)
- uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals)
- rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals)
- very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).
A transient increase in body temperature (on average 0.8°C) was observed 4 hours after administration of a 2-fold overdose. This resolved spontaneously within 24 hours without treatment. Local tissue reaction in the form of swelling (below 2 cm in diameter) at the injection site was commonly observed and resolved within 2 days.
If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this leaflet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.
