ND EDS Vaccine
Our ND EDS vaccine contains a combination of the LaSota strain of Newcastle Disease virus and the B8/78 strain of the EDS virus. The viral agents are in inactivated form, homogenized with oil adjuvant and Merthiolate as a preservative.
- This vaccine serves as a preventative regimen against two important diseases affecting poultry production: Newcastle disease and egg drop syndrome.
- This vaccine is presented in water-in-oil emulsion form (turbo–emulsion).
- Store this vaccine between +2°C and +8°C or 35°F and 45°F.
Dosage and administration of ND EDS vaccine
- Inject subcutaneously (at the back of the neck) or intramuscularly (pectoral or thigh muscles)
- A first vaccination with a live vaccine against Newcastle disease is recommended
- Administer 0.5ml per bird
- The vaccine must be injected subcutaneously (under the skin of the neck) or by intramuscular route (breast or thigh muscles)
- Give the birds multivitamin after vaccine administration
- Vaccinate only healthy birds.
- Before use allow the vaccine to reach room temperature (20-25°C).
- Shake the bottle well before use.
- Use sterile vaccination equipment.
- Use the entire contents when first opened.
- Do not mix with other vaccines.
- Should the operator inject himself or a bystander by accident, a local reaction may occur. It is recommended that the advice of a doctor is sought, taking care to inform the doctor that the vaccine is an oil emulsion.
ND EDS Vaccine: Withdrawal period
- Newcastle disease is an infection of domestic poultry and other bird species caused by the virulent strains of Newcastle disease virus (NDV).
- Note that chickens are the most susceptible to ND, waterfowl the least susceptible of all domestic poultry.
- The virus is shed through exhaled air, respiratory discharges, and faeces.
- The severity of the disease caused by NDV depends on the virulence of the infecting virus and host susceptibility.
- Clinical manifestations vary from high morbidity/mortality to asymptomatic infections. The severity of infection depends on virus virulence, bird age, immune status, and host susceptibility.
- Observed signs depend on the systemic predilection of the virus (respiratory, digestive, or nervous systems).
- Respiratory signs include gasping, coughing, sneezing, and rales.
- Nervous signs: Tremors, paralyzed wings/legs, twisted necks, circling, clonic spasms, and sometimes complete paralysis.
