Fel-O-Vax FIV Indications

For the vaccination of healthy cats 8 weeks of age or older as an aid in the prevention of infection with feline immunodeficiency virus.

Efficacy was demonstrated in cats that received three doses of vaccine and were challenged one year post vaccination with a heterologous FIV strain. In one study the vaccine protected 67% of the vaccinates against infection (any cat that showed evidence of integration of the viral genome into its white blood cells was considered infected) while 74% of the controls became persistently viremic. In a more recent one year study, the vaccine protected 84% of the vaccinates against infection while 90% of the controls became persistently viremic.

Directions For Use

Shake well. Inject one 1 mL dose subcutaneously using aseptic technique. Administer 2 additional doses at intervals of 2 to 3 weeks. Annual revaccination is recommended. In case of anaphylactoid reaction, administer epinephrine.

The PEEL-OFF LABEL I.D. SYSTEM provides a simple and effective method of recording pertinent information on the vaccines administered to animals in a veterinary practice.

For vaccines requiring reconstitution, remove label from both vials and affix both labels to the animal’s medical chart.

Using the System:


Grasp the vial label at the corner marked with an indicator arrow, between your thumb and forefinger (figure 1).


Pull steadily at a slight angle until the label is separated from the vial (figure 2).


Place the label on the animal’s medical chart. Press down on the label to ensure adhesion.


Store in dark at 2-7°C. Do not freeze.
