The economic impact of losses due to pasteurellosis and clostridial diseases can be devastating. Lamb deaths are only part of the loss. Even surviving lambs are liable to suffer long term losses in condition and weight. While they may look perfectly well, unseen damage to the lungs is common after pneumonia strikes and only becomes apparent when reduced performance leads to later or fewer finished lambs1.

Heptavac P Plus is used for the active immunisation of sheep as an aid in the control of clostridial diseases and pasteurellosis in sheep. Heptavac P Plus contains antigens from six clostridial species and antigens from the most important serotypes of Mannheimia haemolytica and Pasteurella trehalosi.

Indications for use

For the active immunisation of sheep as an aid in the control of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus, braxy, blackleg, black disease, clostridial metritis caused by Clostridium perfringens types B, C and D, Cl. septicum, Cl. novyi, Cl. chauvoei and Cl. tetani. The vaccine may be used as an aid in the control of pneumonic pasteurellosis in sheep of all ages from a minimum age of 3 weeks and in the control of systemic pasteurellosis in weaned fattening and breeding sheep.

The vaccine may be used in pregnant ewes as an aid in the control of lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, tetanus and pasteurellosis in their lambs provided that the lambs receive sufficient immune colostrum during the first 1-2 days of life.

It is essential to give replacement ewes (and rams) two 2 ml doses, 4 to 6 weeks apart when they join the flock. An annual booster dose is also required 4-6 weeks pre lambing to maintain the ewe’s immunity and to provide high levels of antibodies that can be passed on to her lambs via the colostrum.
