1. Racing pigeons: All birds in the loft should be given one vaccination annually not less than 14 days before the beginning of the racing season. Young birds may be vaccinated with Colombovac PMV from 3 weeks of age when a single injection will provide immunity for 1 year. Following vaccination avoid contact with birds from other lofts for at least 14 days.
All adult birds in the loft should be given a single booster vaccination annually. Where the annual booster vaccination may interfere with the training or racing programme, it may be brought forward prior to the commencement of each racing season.
2. Show pigeons: All birds on the premises should be given one vaccination annually not less than 14 days before the beginning of the show season. Young birds may be vaccinated with Colombovac PMV from 3 weeks of age when a single injection will provide immunity for 1 year. Following vaccination, avoid contact with birds from other sources for at least 14 days.
All adult birds on the premises should be given a single booster vaccination annually.
Do not use in unhealthy pigeons.
Do not vaccinate during the last 2 weeks prior to mating.
Do not use in birds in lay or within 4 weeks before the onset of the laying period.
Vaccination is safe in breeding birds provided they are vaccinated before the start of breeding.
No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.
Do not mix with any other veterinary medicinal product.
It is very common that vaccinated pigeons show an adverse reaction in the form of a small transient swelling at the site of injection.
An overdose may result in an increase of the degree of local reactions.
If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this leaflet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.
Not for intramuscular injection: Intramuscular injection causes severe adverse reactions.
Maternally-derived antibody (MDA) can interfere with the development of active immunity. Where it is likely that recent field infection or vaccination of the parent flock has stimulated a high antibody titre and consequently a high level of MDA, the timing of the vaccination programme should be planned accordingly.
In cases of hypersensitivity reactions treat immediately with glucocorticoid intravenously or adrenaline intramuscularly.
The incubation period for pigeon paramyxovirosis may be a few days to several weeks. However, after infection with the wild virus, pigeons excrete the virus from the eye and in the droppings within 3-4 days. This means that infected birds can be a danger to others some days before their own symptoms appear. Excretion of wild virus from the infected bird continues for up to 6 weeks. This information is important since, in addition to direct bird to bird contact at competitions and shows, the disease can be spread by indirect means such as hands, overalls, caps, boots and contaminated objects such as baskets and trucks.
An owner should forbid visits to the loft by anyone in contact with unvaccinated pigeons and new birds (either purchased or lent for mating) should not be brought in unless vaccinated at least 14 days previously.
In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
