A fluid vaccine with a precipitate which resuspends on shaking. Each 5 ml dose contains cell-free pilus antigens of E. coli, strains K88ab, K88ac, K99 and 987P (not less than 100 units of each); bacterin toxoid of Cl. perfringens Type B and purified toxoids of Types C and D (together contributing not less than 300 international unit equivalents of beta toxoid and not less than 200 international unit equivalents of epsilon toxoid); all absorbed on to aluminium hydroxide gel. Thiomersal BP (0.01% w/v) is added as preservative.
Uses
For administration to pregnant gilts and sows to stimulate the production of antibodies which are then passed in the colostrum and milk to aid in the protection of the piglets against E. coli diarrhoea and Cl. perfringens Type C enteritis during the suckling period.
