For vaccination of healthy breeding swine as an aid in preventing reproductive failure caused by porcine parvovirus (PPV), erysipelas caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, and leptospirosis caused by Leptospira bratislava, L. canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona.
PPV and Leptospira are common agents of reproductive loss in swine. While infection with either of these pathogens may produce subclinical disease, infection with PPV during pregnancy may result in fetal resorption, fetal mummification and stillbirths. Infection by Leptospira during the second half of pregnancy may cause abortions and stillbirths; late-term abortions are the most important economic effect of leptospirosis. Leptospirosis caused by any of the serovars represented here cannot be clinically differentiated. Abortions may also occur in sows infected with E. rhusiopathiae during pregnancy.
An 18-week duration of immunity following vaccination has been demonstrated against erysipelas. Administer 2 mL intramuscularly.
Primary Vaccination: Healthy swine should receive 2 doses 3-5 weeks apart with the second dose administered 2-4 weeks prior to breeding. Healthy gilts, however, should receive the second dose as near as possible to 14 days prior to breeding.
Revaccination: Revaccination with a single dose is recommended prior to subsequent breedings. Boars should be revaccinated semiannually.
Contains gentamicin as preservative
