Zoetis BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP® Products earn additional label claim for Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) Fetal Protection
Providing the highest level of protection against infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) viruses is critical, especially for pregnant cattle. Unprotected cows exposed to BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses may experience pregnancy loss or the delivery of weak or BVD persistently infected (PI) calves. To help producers further protect the cow herd, BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP® 5 and BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5 HB products, recently earned an additional label claim from the U.S. Department of Agriculture against fetal infection caused by (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses. Combined with the current label claims to prevent PI calves caused by BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses, and to aid in the prevention of abortion caused by IBR virus, the BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP® 5 and BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5 HB product lines have the highest level of fetal protection of any reproductive vaccine available to cow/calf producers, according to a release.
