7.6.4 Three Days after vaccination

* No antibiotics!

For maximum effectiveness of the vaccine it is crucial that the animals are not treated with antibiotics during three days following vaccination. This is true for antibiotic treatment via water, feed or by injection and antimicrobial growth promoters.

* Application using a drencher

As an alternative to the vaccination via a trough or a drinking water system, the vaccine can also be administered using a drench. Following this method the vaccine is reconstituted with the provided diluent. With the help of a drencher, each pig due for vaccination receives a 2 ml-dose of the vaccine directly into the mouth (without addition of milk!). It should be ensured that the pigs swallow the whole 2 ml dose.
