- Glanvac 6 B12 provides sheep with protection against Cheesy Gland (CLA) and the 5 main clostridial diseases (Black Disease, Black Leg, Malignant Oedema, Pulpy Kidney, and Tetanus) with the added benefit of correcting Vitamin B12 deficiency.
- Cheesy Gland (CLA) is a risk to all Australian sheep flocks. Clostridial diseases are found Australia wide in the soil and the environment.
- Vitamin B12 is required for energy production, cell division and replication as well as wool production. Vitamin B12 deficiencies in sheep result in decreased appetite, reduced growth rates, reduced lactation, reduced wool production and anaemia.
- Glanvac 6 B12 utilises Zoetis' ultra-filtration technology, this allows the vaccine to produce a more targeted immune response in sheep, while providing producers with the convenience of a 1 mL dose rate.
- Creates a high level of disease protection in the breeding flock.
- Improves lambing and weaning percentages by preventing clostridial deaths such as Pulpy Kidney and Tetanus.
- Improves meat quality through Cheesy Gland protection, ensuring export and domestic customers receive a quality product.
- Improves wool quality and quantity by protecting against Cheesy Gland and maintaining vitamin B12 reserves.
- Maintain a high level of vitamin B12 in pregnant and lactating ewes during periods of high requirement.
- In lambs and weaners supplementary Vitamin B12 can prevent:
- Loss of appetite
- Decreased growth rates
- Weight loss and
- Anaemia from Vitamin B12 deficiency
30-day reuse claim when label directions are followed correctly.
Recommendations for Use
- Control of caseous lymphadenitis (CLA or Cheesy Gland) and the prevention of enterotoxaemia (Pulpy Kidney disease), Tetanus, Black Disease, Malignant Oedema and Blackleg in sheep, lambs, goats, and kids plus Swelled Head in rams.
- Treatment and prevention of vitamin B12 deficiency in sheep, in areas of known or suspected cobalt deficiency.
The Zoetis Advantage
- Ensures the vaccine is of the highest quality by seeking out and removing unwanted particles
- Enables the vaccine to generate a more targeted immune response
- Delivers reliable protection within a convenient 1mL dose rate.
Advantages Glanvac+Eryvac Dual Vaccinator
This vaccine may be administered with Eryvac vaccine (APVMA No. 53385) using a dual-barrel single needle vaccination device and has been proven a safe method of vaccination in pregnant ewes.
The co-administration of Glanvac vaccine and Eryvac vaccine using a dual-barrel single-needle vaccinator resulted in efficacy (measured using serological outcomes such as antibody titres) that was comparable to that of each vaccine administered separately, with an acceptable safety profile.
Vaccinate at a 45° angle to the skin in lambs and adults with short wool, and at 90° for adults with wool growth.
- For ewes vaccinate 4 weeks before the expected date of lambing.
- This should pass temporary immunity to their lambs in the colostrum, or first milk, to protect them for the first 6 to 8 weeks of their lives.
- For Pulpy Kidney protection, where possible give the annual booster at least 2 weeks prior to the time of maximum risk, e.g. transfer to lush pasture or grain feeding.
- For Cheesy Gland (CLA) booster doses should be given within 6 months prior to shearing
1. First ‘priming’ dose at marking.
2. Second ‘booster’ dose 4 weeks later.
Previously unvaccinated does need two doses:
1. First ‘priming’ dose at the time of joining/mating.
2. Second ‘booster’ dose approximately 4 weeks before the expected date of kidding.
Previously vaccinated does:
- Vaccinate 4 weeks before the expected date of kidding.
- This should pass temporary immunity to their kids in the colostrum, or first milk, to protect them for the first 6 to 8 weeks of their lives.
Other classes of previously unvaccinated goats need two doses:
1. First ‘priming’ dose.
2. Second ‘booster’ dose approximately 4 weeks after.
GOATS WILL THEN REQUIRE REGULAR REVACCINATION AT 6 MONTHLY INTERVALS TO MAINTAIN EFFECTIVE IMMUNITY AGAINST ENTEROTOXAEMIA (PULPY KIDNEY)
1. Unscrew the delivery tube from the vaccine pack
2. Empty the delivery tube and vaccinator by depressing the plunger several times
3. Disinfect the stopper with Methylated spirits
4. Store the vaccine in this original cardboard carton and place in the refrigerator (2oC – 8oC). DO NOT FREEZE
5. Use the remaining vaccine within 30 days
6. Clean the delivery tube and draw off cap and sterilise by boiling in water for 10 minutes
7. Before reuse disinfect the stopper with Methylated spirits
- Use a vaccinator with a retractable shroud to tent the skin and for single handed vaccination.
- Clean and maintain the vaccinator as outlined by the manufacturer daily.
- Only use Methylated spirits at the site of vaccination or to clean the needle while in use.
- Ensure the needle is sharp and not burred, replace often.
- DO NOT leave vaccine in the draw off tube or vaccinator after the workday
DO NOT leave vaccine in the draw off tube or vaccinator after the work day
Safe Use Recommendations
Take care to avoid accidental self-injection.
Allow the wound to bleed freely and do not squeeze or interfere with the injection site to avoid spread of the vaccine. Clean the wound thoroughly with soap and water, and then keep it clean and dry.
In the event of self-injection, seek medical attention if you are concerned and show the package leaflet or the label, to the Medical Practitioner.
If pain persists after medical examination, seek medical advice again.
