Vaccine for the immunisation of sheep
against enterotoxaemia (Pulpy kidney disease).
Toxoid of Clostridium perfringens (welchii) type D.
Lambs may be immunised from 4-5 months of age or even sooner if they are weaned at an early age. The best immunity is obtained when animals are first given an injection of the vaccine followed by a second injection 4-6 weeks later. If lambs younger than 4 months of age are immunised a booster injection of the vaccine should be given after 6-8 months. Thereafter an annual booster should be given. NB: Lambs younger than 2 months and animals in poor condition, infected with internal parasites or which are suffering from other diseases will not immunise well. Pregnant ewes may safely be immunised with this vaccine
