Strepvax II is for use in healthy horses of all ages as an aid in the prevention of disease (strangles) due to Streptococcus equi infection. Strepvax II is a concentrated, aluminum hydroxide - absorbed suspension of purified antigens derived from S. equi cells. Strepvax II contains the antigenic protein of S. equi but is essentially free of the toxic and irritant substances present in whole cell bacterins. Strepvax II has been observed to decrease the incidence and severity of strangles in controlled efficacy studies as well as under field conditions. When its use is combined with good hygiene and the segregation of affected individuals, Strepvax II will help to limit the occurrence of clinical disease and to minimize sequela. 1 dose syringe.
Store at 35-45 degrees F (2-7 degrees C). Protect from freezing. Use entire contents when first opened.
Field reports suggest that certain hypersensitive individuals may demonstrate local or generalized reactions, sometimes severe, following exposure to streptococcal proteins. Field studies indicate that postvaccinal exercise will appreciably decrease the incidence and duration of reactions. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.
Anaphylactoid reactions may occur following use.
Shake well. Vaccinate healthy horses with a 1 ml dose IM preferably in the hind quarters. For primary vaccination give 3 doses at intervals of 3 weeks. Foals vaccinated when less than 3 months of age should receive an additional dose at 6 months. Revaccinate annually and prior to anticipated exposure, using a single 1 ml dose.
