St. Joseph, Missouri, May 23, 2011—Triangle® vaccines, long-time staples of the Fort Dodge Animal Health vaccine line, now have a new look and updated names. As part of the expanded Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. portfolio, Triangle® 5 has replaced Triangle® 4 + Type II BVD, and Triangle® 10 replaces Triangle® 9 + Type II BVD.
Triangle 5 and Triangle 10 will also appear in a bottle with a new green label this summer. The familiar Fort Dodge Animal Health yellow label has been replaced by a green label. This green label will be more closely aligned with the design of the Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica family of products.
Although the packaging for Triangle 5 and Triangle 10 has changed, beef and dairy cattle producers will still find the same powerful protection from this killed virus vaccine to aid in the prevention of disease caused by bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV), bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2, parainfluenza 3 (PI3) and infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR). Triangle 10 also aids in the prevention of disease caused by five serovars of Leptospira (L.canicola, L. grippotyphosa, L. hardjo, L. icterohaemorrhagiae, and L. pomona).
For more information on Triangle 5 or Triangle 10, contact your veterinarian or Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. representative.
