INDICATIONS: Bovi-Shield GOLD BVD is for vaccination of healthy cattle to prevent viremia caused by bovine virus diarrhea (BVD) virus Types 1 and 2, and as an aid in preventing respiratory disease caused by (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses. When administered subcutaneously, duration of immunity has been demonstrated to be at least 9 months. Bovi-Shield GOLD BVD may be administered to pregnant cattle provided they were vaccinated, according to label directions, with any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP vaccine within the past 12 months. Bovi-Shield GOLD BVD may also be administered to calves nursing pregnant cows provided their dams were vaccinated within the past 12 months as described above. To help ensure safety in pregnant cattle, heifers must receive at least 2doses of any Bovi-Shield GOLD FP or PregGuard GOLD FP product with the second dose administered approximately 30 days prebreeding.
DIRECTIONS: General Directions: Vaccination of healthy cattle is recommended. Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine with the sterile diluent provided, shake well, and administer 2 mL subcutaneously (SC) or intramuscularly (IM). In accordance with Beef Quality Assurance guidelines, this product should be administered SC in the neck region.
Primary Vaccination: Administer a single 2-mL dose to healthy cattle. To avoid possible maternal antibody interference with active immunization, calves vaccinated before the age of 6 months should be revaccinated after 6 months of age or at weaning. Revaccination: Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended. Good animal husbandry and herd health management practices should be employed.
