Leptoferm-5 Cattle and Swine Vaccine, 100mL/50ds.
Zoetis - Leptoferm-5 protects against disease caused by Leptospira canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona.
Strain of the leptospirosis virus can have a large economic impact in afflicted herds; leptospirosis can easily infect pastures and the bacteria can live for long periods of time in standing water. The strains can cause late-term abortion or premature or weak calves; and can cause calves to have fever, anemia, loss of appetite, and blood in the urine. This one-time, annual dose vaccine helps immunize healthy cattle and swine with minimal adverse effects.

FEATURES / BENEFITS
No significant post vaccination reactions reported in testing or in field use, which means this vaccine can be used without worry of adverse effects.
Leptospira infected cattle can easily infect pastures and the bacteria can live for long periods of time in standing water.
The economic impact of preventing lepto infections in a herd, far outweigh the costs of the vaccine.
This vaccine is a single-dose annually in cattle reducing labor costs.
Contains chemically inactivated whole cultures of the serovars Leptospira canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona.
Protects against reproductive disease caused by 5 common types of Leptospira. Serovars of this bacterium have been shown to cause late term abortion and premature or weak calves in adult cattle. In calves it causes fever, anemia, loss of appetite, and blood in the urine.
In swine, symptoms include fever, anemia, abortion and kidney inflammation. Late term abortions cause a significant economic loss in these industries. This vaccine has been proven to provide an efficacious immune response against these strains. All strains of Leptospira show similar symptoms but vaccines need to be strain specific in order to protect against them.
