Heptavac-P Plus is an injectable immunisation which reduces mortality in sheep. It is used in the control of pasteurellosis pneumonia and clostridial diseases in sheep such as lamb dysentery, pulpy kidney, struck, tetanus, braxy, blackleg and black disease. Vaccinating your flock not only protects your sheep against these conditions but also reduces mortality rates throughout your lock.
Sheep and lambs from 3 weeks of age.
Dose: 2ml by Subcutaneous injection in the lateral side of the upper neck observing aseptic precautions.
