Glanvac®6S B12 provides sheep with protection against Cheesy Gland (CLA) and the five main clostridial diseases with the added ability to correct selenium and cobalt deficiencies in lambs and adult sheep.
Glanvac® 6S B12 utilises Zoetis’ ultra-filtration technology, which selectively removes unwanted particles during the production process. This allows the vaccine to produce a more targeted immune response in sheep, while providing producers with the convenience of a 1mL dose rate.
The prevention of cheesy gland in sheep flocks improves wool production and increases quality of sheep meat. Selenium and cobalt are essential trace elements which are vital for wool and energy production, fertility in ewes, as well as cell growth and maturation.
Deficiencies of these trace elements result in reduced wool production and growth rates, ill thrift, infertility in ewes and death of young lambs due to white muscle disease.
- Maintain a high level of disease protection in the breeding flock for months after vaccination.
- Improve lamb marking percentages by preventing clostridial deaths such as pulpy kidney.
- Improve meat quality through cheesy gland protection, ensuring export and domestic customers receive a quality product.
- Improve wool quality and quantity by protecting against cheesy gland and maintaining Vitamin B12 reserves.
- Maintain a high level of selenium in the lactating ewe and lamb in a period of high requirement which aids in wool production and growth, fertility in ewes and prevents white muscle disease in lambs.
Dosage and Administration:
- Inject 1mL subcutaneously on the side of the neck just behind and below the base of the ear.
- In previously unvaccinated animals of all ages, give a 1mL dose and repeat 4 weeks later.
- Give a booster dose of 1mL 12 months after the two initial doses to confer lifelong immunity against tetanus.
- Give all animals annual booster doses to control caseous lymphadenitis (CLA).
- Where possible give the annual booster prior to the time of maximum risk, e.g. transfer to lush pasture or grain feeding in the case of enterotoxaemia.
- Pregnant ewes: Give previously unvaccinated animals 1mL at the time of mating; repeat at up to 4 weeks before the expected date of birth. Omit the dose at mating in previously vaccinated animals.
- Vaccinated pregnant ewes will pass immunity onto their lambs in the colostrum; lambs should be protected for the first 6 to 8 weeks of life.
