Administration of Tetanus
Antitoxin is recommended for use whenever a non-immunized animal,
or one whose immune status is unknown, suffers a deep penetrating
wound that has or may become contaminated with soil. It provides
quick but short-term protection.
Antitoxin may also be
administered to animals following castration, docking, and other
operations performed on premises upon which tetanus infection has
been a problem.
Vaccination with tetanus toxoid
is recommended for healthy domestic animals not infected with
tetanus, to establish an active immunity for prevention against
disease. Consult with a veterinarian for specific vaccination
reaction may occur following administration of products of this
nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent.
In the event of accidental human
exposure, consult a physician.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
Tetanus antitoxin confers immediate passive immunity lasting about
7 to 14 days. 1500 units administered subcutaneously or
intramuscularly is the recommended dose for prevention.
Large doses of Tetanus Antitoxin
may provide beneficial response in animals already infected with
tetanus, but success of treatment is not assured. For
treatment, administer 10,000 to 50,000 units to horses and cattle;
3,000 to 15,000 units to sheep and swine.
Animals that suffer slow healing
puncture wounds or deep abrasions should be given a second dose of
antitoxin in 7 days and additionally as considered necessary.
