Helpful Tips:

A capsule dose of FIRST DEFENSE®should be given to each calf within the first 12 hours after birth. To administer, remove a FIRST DEFENSE®capsule from its blister pack by tearing off the foil backing and follow the instructions below:
 
1. Place the large end of the capsule in the dosing gun provided until firmly seated. Similarly sized oral bolus or capsule delivery devices can be used, but avoid guns with undersized openings which may fracture the capsule shell.
 
2. Restrain the calf and after gently prying open its mouth, place the dosing gun containing the capsule into the back of the throat and administer the capsule into the esophageal opening.
 
3. To assist the passage of the capsule down the esophagus and to stimulate a swallowing reflex, stroke the surface of the tongue or the outside of the throat.
 
4. The dosing gun should be cleaned and dried immediately following the administration of a capsule to each calf.

The neutralizing antibodies against bovine coronavirus as well as antibodies specific for Escherichia coli K99 pilus antigen present in FIRST DEFENSE are prepared from hyperimmune bovine colostrum.
