PNEUMOMUNE-Re (RHODOCOCCUS EQUI ANTIBODY)
Rhodococcus Equi Antibody
For Veterinary Use Only
300 ml, 500 ml, 1000 ml
For intravenous use in the horse as an aid in the
control of disease caused by Rhodococcus equi infection in the neonate.
The average 100 lb. foal should receive one 1000 ml unit intravenously
within the first 5 days of life. A second 1000 ml dose should be
administered preceding the onset of infection in your particular
endemic area. The primary incidence of this disease occurs between 6-12
weeks of age, but in endemic areas if exposure and environmental
conditions favoring exposure are present, an additional dose may be
necessary for foals up to 16 weeks of age.
Each single dose bag contains plasma as a source of
Rhodococcus equi antibodies with sodium citrate as an anticoagulant
derived from healthy horses with Aa and Ca r.b.c. antigens and no
r.b.c. antibodies. All donor horses are negative to EIA, EVA, Dourine,
Brucellosis, Piroplasmosis and Glanders. There is no preservative
added. KEEP FROZEN UNTIL USE. Thaw quickly in warm water not exceeding
120°F. DO NOT MICROWAVE.
Administer as soon as possible after thawing by
filtered intravenous infusion and discard any unused portion. Although
rapid administration is possible, extreme caution and close monitoring
is esssential in this situation. In case of a reaction, marked most
often by tenesmus and hyperventilation, slow the speed of
administration. If this does not abate the signs, stop administration
until signs abate, and continue at a slower rate. If signs persist
suspend administration and treat with histamine blockers and
anti-inflammatory agents. Administration may be attempted again after
treatment to relieve the adverse response has been successful.
