Clinical particulars
Target species
Indications for use for each target species
For the active immunisation of calves from the age of 10 days against bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) and bovine parainfluenza 3 virus (PI3V), to reduce the quantity and duration of nasal excretion of both viruses.
Onset of immunity: 10 days after vaccination
Duration of immunity: 12 weeks after vaccination.
Special warnings
The laboratory efficacy studies have demonstrated that the presence of maternally derived antibodies at the time of vaccination had no impact on vaccine efficacy in young animals.
Vaccinate healthy animals only.
Special precautions for use
Special precautions for safe use in the target species
Vaccinated calves can excrete the vaccine strains BRSV and PI3V for up to 6 days after vaccination. Therefore, the spread of the vaccine virus from vaccinated to unvaccinated calves cannot be excluded. Animals should be vaccinated at least 10 days before the critical period of stress or high risk of infection, such as rearrangement or transport of animals, or in early autumn. To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to vaccinate all calves of the herd.

Administration routes and dosage
Nasal use.
Reconstitute the vaccine by aseptically adding the supplied solvent into the vial containing the lyophilised component. Mix well. Appearance after reconstitution: opalescent liquid of yellowish to pinkish colour.
Required volume of the reconstituted vaccine is either drawn up from the bottle by syringe with a needle, the needle is then replaced by the intranasal applicator provided and the vaccine is administered or left in the bottle and administered via a multi-dose applicator that can deliver each dose through the intranasal applicator. The intranasal applicator is used to spray the required volume of the vaccine into the animal´s nostrils. The applicator used should spray the vaccine in the form of 30 µm to 100 µm droplets.
Vaccination schedule:
Administer one dose (2 ml) of the reconstituted vaccine intranasally (1 ml of the vaccine into each nostril) to calves from 10 days of age using an intranasal applicator. It is recommended to use a new applicator for each animal, in order to prevent the transmission of infection.
Symptoms of overdose (and where applicable, emergency procedures and antidotes)
A slight and transient nasal discharge was observed the first three days after the administration of a 10-fold overdose without any adverse consequence for in-contact animals.
