Equivac EST Salmonella Single
For the immunisation of mares and foals as an aid in the control of the disease caused by Salmonella typhimurium.
Indications for Use
Salmonella typhimurium infections are severe in new-born foals; therefore, transfer if maternal antibodies in the colostrum is essential for protection of young foals. Husbandry and environmental stressors play a large role in determining the severity of the disease in individual animals.
For primary immunisation, foals of 4 - 12 months of age should be given three doses of vaccine, while adult horses (greater than 12 months) should be given two doses of vaccine.
The interval between doses should be no less than four weeks, with the third dose for foals being six months after the second dose.
The primary immunisation course should be followed by an annual booster to maintain high levels of immunity.
