Vanguard Plus 5This treatment applies to the following species:
Canine Distemper-adenovirus Type 2-parainfluenza-parvovirus Vaccine
Modified Live Virus
For Use In Dogs Only
For vaccination of healthy dogs 6 weeks of age or older as an aid in preventing disease caused by CD virus, CAV-1, CAV-2, CPI virus, CPV and CPV-2c. Vanguard Plus 5 contains attenuated strains of CD virus, CAV-2, CPI virus, and CPV. The high-titer, low-passage CPV virus in Vanguard Plus 5 is highly immunogenic and capable of stimulating active immunity in the presence of maternal antibodies. This product does not contain CPV type 2c. Cross protection against CPV type 2c was demonstrated in vaccinated puppies challenged 5 weeks following second vaccination.
Vaccination and revaccination according to label directions have been demonstrated (under field conditions) to result in serum antibody titers that persist for 12-48 months against CAV-1 (SN ≥ 1:16), CAV-2 (SN ≥ 1:16), CPI virus (SN ≥ 1:16), and CPV (hemagglutination inhibition [HAI] titer ≥ 1:80).
DirectionsAseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine with the sterile diluent provided, shake well, and administer 1 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly. Healthy dogs 6 weeks of age or older should receive 3 doses, each administered 3 weeks apart. Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended. Duration of immunity has not been established.
PrecautionsStore at 2°-7°C. Prolonged exposure to higher temperatures and/or direct sunlight may adversely affect potency. Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened. Sterilized syringes and needles should be used to administer this vaccine. Do not sterilize with chemicals because traces of disinfectant may inactivate the vaccine. Burn containers and all unused contents. Contains gentamicin as preservative. Vaccination of pregnant bitches should be avoided. As with many vaccines, anaphylaxis may occur after use. Initial antidote of epinephrine is recommended and should be followed with appropriate supportive therapy.
