Equivac T provides a practical means of vaccinating against tetanus alone in horses where strangles immunisation is not required.
Prevention of tetanus: A single dose of Equivac T given to an unimmunised horse at the time of wounding or surgery may not prevent tetanus. For short-term prevention of tetanus, Equivac TAT should also be used. See entry for Equivac TAT.
Combined Active-Passive Protection: Equivac T can be administered simultaneously with Equivac TAT. A separate needle and syringe should be used for each product and administration should be on opposite sides of the body. If initiating a primary course the second dose of Equivac T should be administered 4 to 6 weeks later.
Zoetis offers a guarantee against tetanus infection if horses are vaccinated by veterinarians with Equivac T in accordance with the guidelines of the Equine Infectious Diseases Advisory Board and the dose is registered with the health4horses.com.au product registry.
1 mL injected intra-muscularly for horses. Other species receive 1 mL subcutaneously.
For primary immunisation of horses against tetanus, horses 3 months of age and older should be given 2 doses at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks, followed by a booster 12 months later. Further boosters for tetanus are recommended by the Equine Infectious Diseases Advisory Board every 12 months for maximal protection against tetanus infection.
Store between 2°C and 8°C. (Refrigerate. Do not freeze). Protect from light.
Take care to avoid accidental self-injection. In the event of self- administration, seek medical attention if you are concerned and show the package leaflet or the label, to the Medical Practitioner.
