Zoetis has a range of pneumonia vaccines to ensure the most appropriate vaccination programme for your farm.

The following shows some typical vaccination programmes for different age/management groups of calves. You should discuss the most appropriate vaccination programme for your farm with your vet.

DAIRY HEIFER & REARED CALVES

Pneumonia is common in young calves, and dairy heifer & reared calves are particularly susceptible during the first few months of life, a critical period for growth and development. In dairy heifer calves direct links have been shown between pneumonia and age at first calving1, first2,3 and second3 lactation milk yield and longevity in the dairy herd4. These calves therefore require a vaccination programme which can be started from a young age and which works rapidly to ensure the earliest possible protection.

VACCINE PROGRAMME

Rispoval® IntraNasal from 9 days of age provides early protection against BRSv and Pi3v, with immunity proven to last at least 12 weeks.

IF ONGOING PROTECTION IS REQUIRED:

OPTION 1

A further 12 weeks protection against BRSv and Pi3v can be achieved through a follow-on dose of Rispoval® IntraNasal.
The addition of a single dose of Rispoval® IBR-Marker Live from 3 months of age will provide up to 6 months protection against IBR.

OPTION 2

From 3 months of age, a follow on course of 2 doses of Rispoval® 4 will provide a further 6 months of protection against BRSv and Pi3v and also against IBR and BVDv, ensuring ongoing protection against all 4 key viral causes of pneumonia.

SPRING BORN BEEF SUCKLER CALVES (HOMEBRED OR BOUGHT IN)

Spring born beef suckled calves weaned and housed in autumn benefit from broad respiratory disease protection that provides cover throughout the winter housing period.

VACCINE PROGRAMME: OPTION 1

A 2 dose course of Rispoval® 4 from 3 months of age provides cover against all four key viral causes of respiratory disease (BRSv, PI3v, IBR and BVDv) for up to 6 months, ensuring broad protection throughout the winter housing period.

VACCINE PROGRAMME: OPTION 2

For bought-in calves or as an alternative option for homebred calves where rapid protection is required, a single dose of Rispoval® IntraNasal can be used along with Rispoval® IBR-Marker Live* to provide 12 weeks protection against BRSv, PI3v and up to 6 months against IBR.
A second dose of Rispoval® IntraNasal can be given after 12 weeks to provide a further 12 weeks protection against BRSv and Pi3v.

AUTUMN BORN BEEF SUCKLER CALVES

These calves are either born outdoors and housed at a young age or born indoors into a higher risk environment and need a vaccine which can be used early and works fast to provide protection and minimise viral loads in the shed.

VACCINE PROGRAMME: OPTION 1

Rispoval® IntraNasal from 9 days of age provides early protection against BRSv and Pi3v, with immunity proven to last at least 12 weeks.

VACCINE PROGRAMME: OPTION 2

Rispoval® IntraNasal from 9 days of age provides early protection against BRSv and Pi3v, with immunity proven to last at least 12 weeks.

For ongoing protection a second dose of Rispoval® IntraNasal given 12 weeks after the initial dose will provide a further 12 weeks cover.

The addition of a single dose of Rispoval® IBR-Marker Live given to calves over 3 months of age will provide up to 6 months’ protection against IBR.
