Bovilis Ringvac Vaccination for cattle.
Live vaccine containing > 7 x 106 and = 21 x 106 viable microconidia of Trichophyton verrucosum strain LTF-130 per ml after reconstitution in the solvent provided.
For active immunisation of cattle to reduce clinical signs of ringworm caused by Trichophyton verrucosum (prophylactic dose) and to shorten the recovery time of infected cattle showing clinical signs of ringworm (therapeutic dose).
Onset of immunity has been demonstrated at 3 weeks after completion of the recommended course.
The duration of protection has not been determined but experience of use in the field suggests that after the recommended course has been completed cattle continue to be protected without re-vaccination.
Dosage and administration
Calves from 2 weeks to 4 months: 2 ml
Calves from 2 weeks to 4 months: 4 ml
Older cattle : 4 ml
Older cattle : 8 ml
Administration is by intramuscular injection preferably in the neck.
Do not use chemicals, e.g. alcohol, for sterilisation.
The required dose is prepared by reconstituting the vaccine with the accompanying solvent.
Reconstitution of the 20-dose presentation
Reconstitute the vaccine immediately before use by transferring about 5 ml of diluent to the vaccine vial using a sterile needle and syringe. Agitate the vial to ensure that the lyophilisate is fully dissolved and syringe the entire contents into the diluent vial to mix with the remaining diluent.
Initially the whole herd should be vaccinated with a course of 2 vaccinations, 10-14 days apart. Subsequently, for closed herds only young calves require revaccination at around 2 weeks of age, followed by a second injection 10-14 days later. New animals introduced into the herd should receive a full vaccination course at the appropriate dosage. No subsequent doses are required.
Can be used during pregnancy.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Cattle already infected with, or in the incubation of infection with Trichophyton verrucosum, should not be vaccinated with the prophylactic dose. In such cases, animals show signs of the disease which could be severe.
Three to eight days after vaccination a local reaction may occur at the injection site, characterised by local swellings, hairless places or crust forming (up to 2 cm diameter) which, however, decrease after 3 weeks.
Only local reactions and slight temperature rise were observed after vaccination with 10 times the normal dose.
Occasional hypersensitivity reactions may occur. In such cases appropriate treatment with e.g. adrenaline should be given without delay.
Use fresh sterilised equipment for each injection.
