Product Description

50ml out of stock, other sizes available.

For the active immunisation of sheep as an aid to the prevention of footrot and reduction of lesions of footrot caused by serotypes of D. nodosus.

Dosage & Administration

Dose: 1 ml

Administration:

Initial Course: 

  • Two doses, 6 weeks apart by subcutaneous injection.
  • The site for injection is on the side of the neck 2 - 3 inches behind the ear.
  • Thoroughly shake the vaccine before use.
  • As the vaccine contains an oil adjuvant it is rather viscous. It will aid administration in cold weather if the vaccine is gently warmed by immersion in warm water (not hot) for 3 - 4 minutes before use.
  • Syringes and needles should be sterilised before use and the injection made through an area of clean, dry skin, taking strict precautions against contamination in order to reduce the possibility of abscess formation.

Vaccination programmes

  • These should be tailored to meet individual flock requirements which will vary from season to season according to the actual or likely incidence of footrot.
  • Wherever possible ‘whole flock’ vaccination programmes should be adopted. By this means disease incidence in the flock will decline and subsequent disease risk from the environment will be greatly reduced.

Prevention programme

  • Commence vaccination with a single dose of vaccine.
  • Further doses of vaccine will be required according to the flock disease status and/or the climatic conditions.
  • If, after 4 - 6 weeks significant levels of disease remain in the flock or climatic conditions conducive to footrot persist, administer a further dose. Otherwise delay this dose until conditions favour re-emergence of the disease.
  • Subsequent doses should also be administered according to prevailing conditions. Thus, with severe and constant disease challenge, revaccination may be necessary at 4 - 5 monthly intervals; conversely under favourable conditions revaccination may be delayed until the incidence of disease challenge increases or climatic conditions worsen.
  • It should be noted that these adverse conditions tend to occur in the UK between March and May and between October and December thus, vaccination should normally be completed shortly before these periods if problems are anticipated.

Treatment programme

  • A single dose of vaccine should be given to the flock immediately the disease becomes apparent.
  • For maximum effect, treatment with Footvax should be combined with the use of a footbath and antibiotic treatment.

Revaccination: 

  • should be as stated in the prevention programme, which should then be continued on the farm as the key element of the overall flock foot care programme.
