Other Parvo Shield combinations include Parvo Shield L5, which combines parvovirus protection with five strains of lepto, and Parvo Shield E, offering protection against parvovirus and erisypelas.
Gilts and sows should be vaccinated 4-6 weeks prior to breeding, with a second dose in 3-4 weeks.
Parvo Shield L5E helps producers manage for consistent conceptions and well-synchronized farrowings with large litters of healthy pigs.
Boars should be vaccinated semi-annually.
Revaccinate with a single dose 4-6 weeks prior to each subsequent breeding. (In gilts, maternal antibodies to parvovirus may persist for 5 months or longer; that is why the first dose should be given no earlier than 4-6 weeks prior to breeding.)
The ideal pre-breeding vaccine, Parvo Shield L5E provides solid protection against parvovirus, five strains of leptospirosis and erysipelas.
