Livacox Q is a quadrivalent live attenuated coccidiosis vaccine specifically for commercial breeders and layer chickens. It gives optimum protection against coccidiosis caused by Eimeria. acervulina, E. maxima, E. tenella and E. necatrix.
- Immunity develops 10 – 14 days after vaccination and remains active during the bird’s whole life.
- It is suitable for use in domestic poultry (Gallus gallus domesticus), chickens 1 – 10 days old.
- Store in a dry and dark place at +2 to +8 °C. Do not freeze.
- Shake well before use, vaccinate only healthy birds.
- Ensure access to droppings for a minimum of 10 days.
Livacox Q: Active substances
One dose contains coccidian oocysts of:
|Eimeria acervulina||300 – 500|
|Eimeria tenella||300 – 500|
|Eimeria maxima||300 – 500|
Contact with any substances having anticoccidial activity, after vaccination, may reduce the period of effective protection during the course of the bird’s life. The feed given to chickens shall not include any anticoccidials and sulphonamides from 2 days before until 14 days after vaccination.
Dosage and methods of application
In drinking water:
- A single dose of the vaccine is given one-time to chickens 1-10 days old. Early vaccination in the bird’s life is recommended.
- The water consumption for vaccination can be set approximately using the following formula: 1 litre of water / 1 day of chicken age / 1,000 chickens.
- The birds shall consume the vaccinated water within 2 hours.
- The vaccine shall be diluted with drinking water containing a food dye (to enable visual control of the application) and sprayed on 1-day-old chickens in the crate.
- The chickens should remain in the crate for at least 3 hours.
- Recommended dilution: The total volume of fluid to be sprayed (1 crate / 100 chickens) is 20 mL, i.e. the vaccination dose is contained in 20 mL of solution [1 mL of vaccine (100 doses) + 19 mL of drinking water with dye]. The chickens in every crate shall be sprayed with 1 mL of vaccine always for 100 chickens even if the crate contains less than 100 chickens.
