Stress & crowding can be associated with respiratory disease, but giving a course of Zylexis five days before, can reduce the clinical signs.
Zylexis contains inactivated Parapoxvirus ovis. It comes in 5 vials to be reconstituted. The course of 3 injections are given intra-muscularly; horses should be given the first injection (day 0), then 48 hours later (day 2), given the second injection, then 7 days after that (day 9), given the third injection. Zylexis can be used in horses from 10 months of age onwards.
Zylexis should be stored in a refrigerator, between 2 - 8°C & protected from light.
This product requires a prescription from your vet & will only be dispatched once we receive this prescription.
