Feline Rhinotracheitis-calici-panleukopenia Vaccine

MODIFIED LIVE AND KILLED VIRUS

For veterinary use in cats only

Product Description

FVR® C-P vaccine is a combination of antigens for convenient use in healthy cats 8 to 9 weeks of age or older as an aid in the prevention of disease caused by feline rhinotracheitis, feline calici and feline panleukopenia viruses. The feline rhinotracheitis-calici component is a lyophilized suspension of modified live viruses propagated in a stable cell line of feline origin and backfilled with an inert gas. The feline panleukopenia virus is propagated in a stable cell line of feline origin. The virus has been chemically inactivated and determined to be non-viricidal when used as a diluent to rehydrate the feline rhinotracheitis-calici vaccine. The safety and efficacy of each virus strain has been demonstrated by vaccination and challenge tests in healthy susceptible cats.
