Actions To Be Taken:
• Based on current knowledge and following communication with the marketing authorisation holder, Pfizer Animal Health, the IMB recommends the following precautionary measures:
• Newborn calves that are born to cows that have previously produced a BNP calf should not receive colostrum from that cow. Rather, these calves should receive colostrum from another cow which has not produced BNP calves.
• Pooled colostrum containing colostrum from a cow which has produced a BNP calf should not be used.
• Suspected adverse reactions to veterinary medicines should be reported either to the company involved (which will in turn report them to the IMB) or directly to the IMB (using the on-line reporting form).
