How to use Antiserum
Tetanus Antitoxin is recommended for use whenever a non-immunized animal, or one whose immune status is unknown, suffers a deep penetrating wound that has or may become contaminated with soil. It provides quick but short-term protection. It may also be administered to animals following castration, docking and other operations performed on premises upon which tetanus infection has been a problem. (NOTE: For long-term protection of non-exposed animals, see Tetanus Toxoid Concentrate.) Administration: Tetanus Antitoxin confers immediate passive immunity lasting about 7-14 days. 1,500 units (IM or subcut) is the recommended dose for prevention. Large doses may provide beneficial response in animals already infected with tetanus, but success of treatment is not assured. 10,000-50,000 units is the recommended dose for treatment. Animals that suffer slow healing puncture wounds or deep abrasions should be given a second dose in 7 days and additionally as considered necessary.
