Buy the New PEDv Vaccine from Zoetis Online!

Posted by Angie Gentry on 7th Oct 2014

JRG Livestock & Pet Supply is excited to announce online availability of the new PED vaccine from Zoetis! JRG customers will be able to buy PEDv vaccine online at a great price, PLUS this item qualifies for our free shipping on orders of $250 or more!

There are a lot of questions about this new vaccine but here's a quick rundown of the basics. Zoetis' vaccine for Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus is given to healthy pregnant swine to protect their neonatal pigs from disease caused by PEDv. For the first vaccination, it is recommended to inject a 2 mL dose at 5 weeks prior to farrowing, followed by a second dose at 2 weeks prior to farrowing. After that, pregnant females should be vaccinated 2 weeks prior to each subsequent farrowing.

This product currently has a conditional license. There's a lot of red tape involved in this but mostly it means that, while a reasonable amount of safety and efficacy has been demonstrated, studies are still being done on the vaccine's efficacy and potency. PEDv is an epidemic and getting a full license takes potentially years so the best and quickest way to get it in the hands of producers is via a conditional license. Also, due to its short-term existence, no duration of immunity has been established.

We are currently only able to get the vaccine in 50 dose bottles, although 250-dose bottles will be available soon. The website will be updated at that time. Please note that this vaccine is in limited supply because it's so new. For this reason, we are asking customers allow an extra 3-5 business days for delivery, in addition to their normal delivery times.
