Bovi Shield Gold FP 5 VL5 vs FP 5 VL5 HB

Postby Bright Raven » Wed Oct 04, 2017 7:09 am

They are identical vaccines in so far as they cover the same species. So why the HB? Both cover Leptospira hardjo!

Both vaccines cover the following:

The FP 5 viruses:
Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR)
Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) Type 1 & 2
Parainfluenza3 (PI3)
Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus (BRSV)

Vibrio: Caused by bacteria Campylobacter fetus.

The 5 Leptospira spirochates:
1.  Canicola
2.  Grippotyphosa
3.  Hardjo
4.  Icterohaemorrhagiae
5.  Pomona

Here is the difference. BS Gold FP 5 VL5 HB includes a serovar, Leptospira borgpetersenii hardjo (type hardjo-bovis). The HB is an acronym for the type hardjo-bovis.

How significant is this? Studies are showing that most of the leptospirosis in the United States are caused by that serovar.
