Clostridial Diseases
Clostridial Diseases such as lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus,braxy, blackleg and black disease can all be fatal to sheep. The organisms that cause clostridial diseases can commonly be found in soil and when conditions are right they can even multiply throughout the soil. These organisms can also live in the stomach of sheep without causing any damage and then spread throughout the soil via the animals manure. When the conditions are correct for the organism they release toxins which when the sheep are stressed can be fatal.

What causes a sheep to be stressed?

Transport: Long journeys and crowded transport conditions.
Nutritional Imbalances: Underfeeding or over grazing can both lead to imbalances in the sheep's needs and can cause ill health.
Weather: Extreme heat, humidity, or cold can all cause a sheep to be stressed.
Parasites: Parasites such as worms and fluke can lower the immune system and stress the animal.
Confinement: Overcrowded confinement or long periods of confinement.
Handling: Especially for wilder sheep that are not handled very often.
Weaning: The Weaning of Lambs can be extremely stressful.
Vaccinating your sheep with Covexin 10 will protect your sheep at times of stress and reduce mortality rates by protecting against pasteurellosis pneumonia and clostridial diseases.

4.1 Target Species
Sheep and cattle.

4.2 Indications for use, specifying the target species
For the active immunisation of sheep and cattle against diseases associated with infections caused by Clostridium
perfringens type A, C. perfringens type B, C. perfringens type C, C. perfringens type D, Clostridium chauvoei,
Clostridium novyi type B, Clostridium septicum, Clostridium sordellii and Clostridium haemolyticum and against
tetanus caused by Clostridium tetani.
For the passive immunisation of lambs and calves against infections caused by the above mentioned clostridial species (except C. haemolyticum in sheep).
The onset of immunity is two weeks after the primary course.
Duration of active immunity
An anamnestic humoral immune response (immunological memory) to all components was demonstrated 12 months
following the primary course of vaccination.
As demonstrated by serology/persistent antibody titre only:
Sheep: 12 months against C. perfringens type A, B, C and D, C. novyi type B, C. sordellii, C. tetani
< 6 months against C. septicum, C. haemolyticum, C. chauvoei
Cattle: 12 months against C. tetani and C. perfringens type D
< 12 months against C. perfringens type A, B and C
< 6 months against C. novyi type B, C. septicum, C. sordellii, C. haemolyticum, C. chauvoei

Duration of passive immunity as demonstrated by serology/persistent antibody titre only is
For lambs:
At least 2 weeks for C. septicum and C. chauvoei, at least 8 weeks for C. perfringens type B and C. perfringens type C and at least twelve weeks for C. perfringens type A, C. perfringens type D, C. novyi type B, C. tetani and C. sordellii.
No passive immunity was observed for C. haemolyticum.

For calves:
At least 2 weeks for C. sordellii, and C. haemolyticum, at least 8 weeks for C. septicum and C. chauvoei and at least
twelve weeks for C. perfringens type A, C. perfringens type B, C. perfringens type C, C. perfringens type D, C. novyi
type B, and C. tetani.

4.3 Contraindications

4.4 Special warnings for each target species
The effectiveness of the vaccine in providing passive immunity to young lambs and calves depends on these animals
ingesting adequate amounts of colostrum on the first day of life.
Clinical trials have demonstrated that the presence of maternal antibodies, particularly against C. tetani, C. novyi type
B, C. perfringens type A (calves only), C. chauvoei (lambs only) and C. perfringens type D may reduce the antibody
response to vaccination in young lambs and calves.
Therefore, to ensure an optimal response in young animals with high levels of MDA, the primary vaccination should be delayed until the levels wane (which is after about 8-12 weeks of age, see section 4.2).

4.5 Special precautions for use
Special precautions for use in animals

In the event of an anaphylactic reaction appropriate treatment such as adrenaline should be administered without delay.
Do not vaccinate sick or immunodeficient animals.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
75 - 100% of animals vaccinated with Covexin 10 may experience reactions to vaccination.
These reactions are usually localised swelling or induration at the injection site but may also include mild hyperthermia, abscess or other reaction in the underlying tissues at the injection site.

Swelling at the injection site occurs in the majority of animals.
This may reach up to a mean value of 6 cm in sheep and 15 cm diameter in cattle; occasionally reactions of up to 25cm diameter may be seen in cattle.
Most local reactions resolve within 3-6 weeks in sheep and in less than 10 weeks in cattle, but may persist longer in a minority of animals.

An abscess may develop in some animals.
Vaccination may give rise to reactions in the underlying tissues at the injection site.
Skin discolouration at the injection site (which returns to normal as the local reaction resolved) may occur.
Localised pain at the injection site for 1-2 days post first vaccination may occur.
The local reactions do not affect the general health, demeanour, feeding or weight gain of the animals.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

No side effects other than those described under 4.6 were seen when the vaccine was used in sheep and cattle between 8 and 2 weeks prior to parturition.
In the absence of specific data, no recommendation can be made for use of the vaccine during the first or second third of pregnancy.
Avoid stress in pregnant ewes and cows.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction
No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal
product. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be
made on a case by case basis.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route
Sheep – from 2 weeks of age         Dose - 1 ml
Cattle – from 2 weeks of age          Dose – 2 ml

By subcutaneous injection at a suitable site. The recommended site is the loose skin on the side of the neck.

Primary vaccination:  Two doses should be administered, 4-6 weeks apart (see section 4.2 and 4.4).
Booster vaccination:   A single dose should be administered at 6 to 12 month intervals (see also point 4.2).

Use in pregnancy
To provide passive protection of the offspring, via the colostrum, a single booster dose should be administered between 8 and 2 weeks before parturition, provided that animals have received a full primary vaccination course before pregnancy.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary
In calves and lambs, local reactions may increase slightly if twice the recommended dose is administered (refer to
section 4.6).

4.11 Withdrawal Period(s)
Zero days.

 Cattle Injectables
Injectables should be given according to the manufacturer’s instructions at the recommended injection site.
• Always use a clean, sterile syringe and needle. If using a multiple injection gun, ensure the needle is disinfected between injections, e.g. with an automatic sterilisation system.
• If the site to be injected is dirty, clean the skin and swab with an alcohol-impregnated wipe or cotton wool.
• Before injecting, check the expiry date and read the instructions of the product to be used. Some products need to be shaken before use.
• Use the correct-sized needle according to the size of the animal and site of injection.
• Ensure the animal is adequately restrained before attempting the injection.
• Take care to ensure it is given subcutaneously and not intramuscularly. Raise a fold of skin at the injection site (mainly neck but some are ear) recommended by the product manufacturer and inject carefully into the space created.
• If a large dose is to be delivered, it may be advisable to split the dose between two injection sites. After the injection, briefly massage the site to improve the dispersal of the injected material.
• Dispose of the needle and syringe in appropriate clinical waste and sharps containers.

Sheep Subcutaneous injections
Subcutaneous injections need to be administered with care to ensure the product is placed under the skin and not into the fleece or muscle.
The sheep needs to be well restrained, and the skin ‘tented’ away from the underlying muscle.
The preferred injection site is 10–15 cm (4–6 inches) below the ear on the side of the neck (see diagram below). Usually a 1.6 cm (5/8 inch) needle is ideal.
After administration, the site should be gently massaged.
