Pyramid® 5 Changes Its Look

Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. has given the Pyramid® 5 package a new look.

(ST. JOSEPH, MO—December 17, 2010) -- Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. has unveiled a new packaging design for Pyramid® 5. The Pyramid brand of vaccines was acquired by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. in late 2009 and the product has been sold in the Fort Dodge packaging until now. Pyramid 5 is the first product from the Pyramid family to be presented in the new package.

The new box is still the familiar yellow, but the design now aligns Pyramid 5 more closely with the rest of the Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica family of products.

Although the packaging for Pyramid 5 has changed, you’ll still find the same powerful protection to aid in the prevention of disease caused by BRSV, BVD Types 1 and 2, PI3 and IBR. In addition, this product aids in the prevention of persistent BVD Types 1 and 2 infections of fetal calves.

For more information on Pyramid 5, contact your veterinarian or Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. representative.
