Express 5-PHM, a modified-live virus respiratory vaccine that includes protection against both strains of pasteurella, Pasteurella haemolytica and P moltocida, is available from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc.
Express 5-PHM also protects against IBR, BVD Types 1 and 2, PI3 and BRSV.
"Express 5-PHM with BVD Type 2 and pasteurella rounds out the full line of protection in our Express family of vaccines," said Wayne Cole, manager cattle biologicals at Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. "It stimulates a quick response and leaves a strong imprint on the immune system, which helps the animal protect itself from respiratory problems. Because Sub-Q administration is recommended Express 5-PHM meets BQA guidelines."
Express 5-PHM is available in 10-dose and 50-dose sizes. A two ml dose, followed by a two ml booster for the BRSV and pasteurella fractions are the recommended individual dosages for beef and dairy calves.
