Upgraded respiratory protection
Posted by Greg Edwards

Helping prevent respiratory disease is an important part of any herd-health program.

To help dairy producers manage respiratory disease, Zoetis recently introduced BOVI-SHIELD GOLD ONE SHOT, a new combination respiratory vaccine. In just one dose, it helps provide upgraded protection against respiratory viruses and Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica.

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.

In addition to respiratory protection against IBR virus and BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses, BOVI-SHIELD GOLD ONE SHOT also helps protect cattle from bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV); parainfluenza 3 (PI3) virus; and M. haemolytica. It is the first and 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.1,2

BOVI-SHIELD GOLD ONE SHOT incorporates components from two trusted products in one convenient dose, so animals receive protection from the major BRD-causing viruses and unmatched protection against M. haemolytica. Having at least 279 days of respiratory immunity against IBR virus and BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses is especially important because cattle are protected through the many stresses that can result in respiratory disease outbreaks.

BOVI-SHIELD GOLD ONE SHOT can be purchased through veterinarians or animal health retailers. Visit to learn more.
