DESCRIPTION: RECOMBITEK® C3 contains a lyophilized suspension of a recombinant canarypox vector expressing the HA and F glycoproteins of canine distemper virus; modified live adenovirus type 2, and parvovirus; plus sterile water diluent. Safety and immunogenicity of this product have been demonstrated by vaccination and challenge tests in susceptible dogs.

For primary vaccination, revaccinate with a second 1 ml dose 2 to 3 weeks later. Dogs younger than 12 weeks of age should be revaccinated with a single 1 ml dose every 2 to 3 weeks, the last dose given at or over 12 weeks of age. Revaccinate annually with a single 1 ml dose.
