The duration of immunity of this product has not been determined. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data go to productdata.aphis.usda.gov.
CompositionCanine Spectra® 5 vaccine is a combination of immunogenic, attenuated strains of CDV, CAV2, CPIV, and CPV type 2b, propagated in cell line tissue cultures The CAV2 fraction has been shown to be effective against disease due to CAV1. This product contains a CPV2b strain which has been demonstrated effective against disease caused by CPV2c in puppies with maternal antibody. Gentamicin added as preservative.
Directions and dosage: Open the syringe by twisting or tapping the cap against a hard surface to break the heat weld. Aseptically rehydrate the vaccine cake with 1 mL of sterile diluent supplied. SHAKE WELL. Withdraw entire contents into the syringe. Administer one 1 mL dose subcutaneously. Subcutaneous administration: Lift the loose skin behind the neck or behind the front leg and insert needle (see illustration, arrows 1 and 2). Inject entire contents of syringe. Do not inject directly into blood vessel (see note below). IMPORTANT NOTE: Before injecting vaccine, pull back slightly on syringe plunger. If blood enters the syringe freely, choose another injection site. All dogs should initially receive one dose of this product and a second dose 2 to 3 weeks later. The presence of maternal antibody is known to interfere with the development of active immunity in dogs and additional boosters will be required in most young animals. Historically, annual revaccination with a single dose has been recommended for this product. The need for this booster has not been established. For advice on revaccination frequency and annual booster vaccinations, consultation with a veterinarian is recommended.
