Zoetis announced the addition of ONE SHOT BVD to its comprehensive vaccine portfolio. The new vaccine helps provide combined respiratory protection against Mannheimia haemolytica and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses in a single dose.
According to the announcement, ONE SHOT BVD helps cattle producers expand respiratory vaccination programs that currently include INFORCE 3 respiratory vaccine, which is used to help protect beef and dairy calves. Young calves need additional respiratory protection due to underdeveloped immune systems and exposure to environmental stressors, which can cause them to fall victim to respiratory infection.
The "respiratory protection of INFORCE 3 against bovine respiratory syncytial virus and the complementary M. haemolytica and BVD protection of ONE SHOT BVD offers producers a convenient and effective way to help combat bovine respiratory disease,” said Dr. Jon Seeger, managing veterinarian for Zoetis Cattle & Equine Technical Services. “These vaccines help provide the respiratory protection calves need until they are sold or move to the next production phase.”
ONE SHOT BVD is available in 10- or 50-dose vials and can be purchased through veterinarians or animal health retailers.
