4.1 Target species


Indications for use, specifying the target species

For active immunisation of dogs from 8 weeks of age to:

Onset of immunity:

The onset of immunity has been demonstrated:

Duration of immunity:

The duration of immunity lasts for one year after the primary vaccination for all components. For CPV and CAV-1, the duration of immunity was demonstrated by serological data. For CPV, it was shown that one year after the vaccination CPV-2 and CPV-2c antibodies are still present. In the duration of immunity studies there was no significant difference between vaccinated and control dogs in viral excretion for CPiV or CAV-2.

4.3 Contraindications


4.4 Special warnings for each target species

The presence of maternally derived antibodies (puppies from vaccinated females) may in some cases interfere with the vaccination. Therefore the vaccination scheme should be adapted accordingly (see section 4.9).

4.5 Special precautions for use

Special precautions for use in animals

Apply usual aseptic procedures.

Vaccinate only healthy animals.

After vaccination, the live viral vaccinal strains (CAV-2, CPV) can be spread to unvaccinated animals without any pathological effect for these in-contact animals.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

After the administration of one dose of the product, a moderate local reaction which resolves spontaneously within 1 to 2 weeks may commonly be observed. This transient local reaction can be a swelling (≤ 4 cm) or slight diffuse local oedema, in rare cases associated with pain or pruritus.

Some transient post-vaccinal lethargic states are common. In rare cases hyperthermia or digestive disturbances such as anorexia, diarrhoea or vomiting may occur.

Very rare hypersensitivity reactions have been reported, in case of such an allergic or anaphylactic reaction, appropriate symptomatic treatment should be administered.

The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:

- very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reactions during the course of one treatment)

- common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals)

- uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals)

- rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals)

- very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Do not use during pregnancy and lactation.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that this vaccine can be mixed and administered with Virbac’s Leptospira vaccine if available.

No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product except the product mentioned above. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route

After reconstitution of the lyophilisate with the solvent, shake gently and administer immediately one dose of 1 ml subcutaneously according to the following vaccination schedule:

Primary vaccination course:

- first injection from 8 weeks of age

- second injection 3 or 4 weeks later

When active immunisation against leptospira is also required, Virbac’s Leptospira vaccine can be used in place of the solvent. After reconstitution of one dose of the product with one dose of Virbac’s Leptospira vaccine, shake gently (the reconstituted product is slightly pinkish beige) and administer immediately one dose of 1 ml subcutaneously according to the same vaccination schedule: 2 injections 3 to 4 weeks apart from 8 weeks of age.

Annual re-vaccination:

One booster injection of a single dose should be given 1 year after the second injection and annually thereafter.

Maternally derived antibodies may in some cases influence the immune response to vaccination. In such cases, a third injection is recommended from 15 weeks of age.

The appearance of the reconstituted product is slightly pink.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

The administration of a 10 fold overdose at a single injection site did not cause any reactions other than those mentioned in Section 4.6 ‘Adverse reactions’ except that the duration of local reactions was increased (up to 26 days).

4.11 Withdrawal period(s)

Not applicable.
