Zoetis Introduces Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot Respiratory Vaccine

Zoetis Introduces Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot Respiratory Vaccine



Zoetis introduces Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot™New combination respiratory vaccine helps producers upgrade protection against bovine respiratory disease in cattle


Zoetis Inc., formerly the animal health business unit of Pfizer Inc., announces the licensure of Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot ™. With Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot, producers get upgraded protection for their cattle against major respiratory viruses and Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica in one convenient dose. Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot offers the longest demonstrated protection of the combination respiratory vaccines on the market. It helps protect cattle for at least 279 days against infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) virus and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses - at least 30% longer than Vista® Once SQ and longer demonstrated protection than Pyramid® 5 + Presponse® SQ vaccine, which has no duration of immunity label claims.


The extended protection of Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot helps producers protect their cattle against IBR virus and BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses that cause bovine respiratory disease (BRD), which can result in losses as high as $240 per head.


“BRD is a major health concern for cattle producers, and it’s the leading cause of economic losses,” said Jon Seeger, DVM, managing veterinarian with Zoetis Cattle and Equine Technical Services. “Having at least 279 days of respiratory immunity against IBR virus and BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses with Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot is especially advantageous because cattle are protected through the stresses that can result in BRD outbreaks - leaving the herd at weaning, processing, shipping, commingling and arrival at another operation.”


Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot helps protect cattle from respiratory disease caused by IBR virus; BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses; bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV); parainfluenza 3 (PI3) virus; and M. haemolytica. It is the only combination respiratory vaccine that is labeled to prevent IBR, prevent BVD viremia and aid in the prevention of M. haemolytica, the No. 1 calf killer.


“Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot incorporates components from two trusted products in one convenient dose, so animals receive superior protection from the major BRD-causing viruses and unmatched M. haemolytica protection,” Dr. Seeger explained. “Healthy calves have the best opportunity to gain weight quickly and efficiently.”


Bovi-Shield Gold One Shot is available in 5-, 10- or 50-dose vials and can be purchased through veterinarians or animal health retailers.
