Indications

For the active immunisation of horse, to reduce mortality and clinical signs of the disease caused by infection with Clostridium tetani.
About 10 – 14 days after basic immunisation (two vaccinations) the antibodies against tetanus toxoid reach an interim maximum and protective immunity is obtained that lasts for at least one year. The first booster immunisation (third vaccination) leads to a rapid increase of the antitoxin titre.
For horses it has been shown that the protection resulting after the third vaccination lasts for at least two years.

For concurrent administration with Intervet’s tetanus antitoxin serum to injured horses that have not been vaccinated or are not completely immunised against tetanus, to reduce mortality and reduce clinical signs of the disease caused by infection with Clostridium tetani.

For the active immunisation of pregnant mares in order to provide passive immunity to the progeny against mortality and clinical disease caused by infection with Clostridium tetani.

For the active immunisation of cattle, sheep, pigs and dogs against disease caused by infection with Clostridium tetani in situations where a tetanus threat has been experienced or is expected and for the active immunisation of pregnant cows, ewes, sows and bitches to provide passive immunity to the progeny.
