It provides quick but short-term protection. It can also be given to to animals following castration, docking, and other operations performed on premises upon which tetanus infection has been a problem.
PRECAUTIONS: Anaphylactoid 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 intra-muscularly is the recommended dose for prevention.
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.
