StayBred® VL5 is for vaccination of healthy cows and heifers as an aid in preventing campylobacteriosis (vibriosis) caused by Campylobacter fetus; and leptospirosis caused by Leptospira canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona. StayBred VL5 is a chemically inactivated, oil-adjuvanted suspension of Campylobacter fetus combined with chemically inactivated Leptospira cultures of Leptospira canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona.
- Campylobacteriosis (vibriosis) and leptospirosis are two of the most important reproductive diseases affecting adult cattle. These diseases can be difficult to detect and vaccination is the most cost-effective method of controlling them.
- Intramuscular (IM) dose is 2mL followed by a second dose two to four weeks later given to all breeding-age cows and heifers 30 to 60 days before exposure or being added to the breeding herd.
- Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended.
