Announcing the Intervet Foal Care Program and Prestige IV FoalShot

MILLSBORO, Del. (Dec. 11, 2006) - Intervet Inc. announces the Intervet Foal Care Program and the availability of Prestige IV FoalShot with Havlogen® equine vaccine.

About the Intervet Foal Care Program

The Intervet Foal Care Program is the industry's first integrated foal-health program developed especially to help horse owners keep track of important milestones in their foals' development and healthcare.

"The Intervet Foal Care Program is intended to support the healthcare program recommended by your veterinarian," says Wendy Vaala, V.D.M., Dipl. A.C.V.I.M., Intervet Equine Technical Services Specialist, and one of the foremost equine neonatal experts in the country. "Together, horse owners and veterinarians can use the tools and information provided through the Intervet Foal Care Program to create and customize a plan for responsible growth and preventive foal healthcare."

The new Web site, http://www.FoalCare.com provides interactive tools and downloadable charts that veterinarians and horse owners can use to track the growth and health of foals.

Intervet Introduces Prestige® IV FoalShot with Havlogen®

The new four-way vaccine combines antigens for Eastern and Western Encephalomyelitis (EEE, WEE), Tetanus and Equine Herpes Virus 1 and 4 (EHV-1, EHV-4) in the convenience of a low-volume, low reaction, 1-mL dose.

"Until now, there has not been a single-vaccine solution for foals," says Vaala. "Foals require a distinct protocol when it comes to disease protection, and Prestige IV FoalShot is the first vaccine to address the specific needs of the foal."

The vaccine is proven as an aid in the prevention of disease caused by EEE, WEE viruses and Tetanus, and as an aid in the control of respiratory disease caused by EHV-1 and EHV-4.

Vaala says prior to Prestige IV FoalShot, veterinarians and horse owners had a choice of using multivalent vaccines with more antigens than the foal needed or administering multiple single-antigen shots as part of their vaccination program for young foals.
