For use on healthy sheep and goats as an aid in the control of Sore Mouth disease. Contains penicillin
and streptomycin as preservatives.
Store at 2 to 7 C. Use entire contents when first rehydrated. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before
slaughter or within 24 hours of dipping or spraying.
It is advisable to vaccinate each new lamb and kid crop. Since exposure to infection can occur during
shipping, range lambs moving into feedlots should be vaccinated at least 14 days before shipment to
prevent possible rapid spread of the disease after arrival.
Normally only healthy animals should be vaccinated, but experience has shown that vaccination of
infected sheep and lambs tends to shorten the course of disease during an outbreak of Sore Mouth.
Do not use disinfectants to sterilize the syringe, brush/scarifier before and during use.
In the event of accidental human exposure, consult a physician. Burn, autoclave or chemically disinfect
container and all unused contents.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
Select a wool free area of skin, such as the inside of the flank and scarify the outer layer by scratching
with the notched handle of the enclosed applicator. Scratching need not be deep enough to cause
bleeding but should be sufficient to adequately roughen the skin. An area of at least one square inch
scarified. Rehydrate the vaccine (with accompanying diluent) immediately before use and apply with
enclosed brush or by placing a drop on the scarified area and brush vigorously.
Reddening and slight swelling at the site of administration should be observed a few days after
vaccination. This will develop into raised areas that will rupture and scab over representing a take
that indicates successful vaccination. Scabs will dry and fall off in about 2 to 4 weeks.
