UltraBac® 7 (Zoetis)
UltraBac 7 is for vaccination of healthy cattle and sheep to aid in preventing clostridial diseases.
UltraBac® 7 is for use in healthy cattle and sheep as an aid in preventing blackleg caused by Clostridium chauvoei, malignant edema caused by Cl. septicum, black disease caused by Cl. novyi, gas-gangrene caused by Cl. sordellii, and enterotoxemia and enteritis caused by Cl. perfringens Types B, C and D.
Although Cl. perfringens Type B is not a significant problem in North America, immunity is provided by the beta toxoid of Type C and the epsilon toxoid of Type D. Ultrabac® 7 consists of killed, standardized cultures of Cl. chauvoei, Cl. septicum, Cl. novyi, Cl. sordellii, and Cl. perfringens Types C and D, with an adjuvant.
- Helps prevent seven clostridial diseases (including diseases caused by CI. perfringens Types B, C and D), which continue to be of economic importance in cattle. Clostridium bacteria are universally present and produce potent toxins that can result in rapid death of otherwise healthy animals.
- Helps provide comprehensive clostridial protection in one vaccine.
- Subcutaneous (SC) dose is 5 mL followed by a second dose given four to six weeks later. Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended.
Inject 5 mL for cattle and 2.5 mL for sheep SQ and repeat in 4 to 6 weeks.
