Manufacturer: Heska

Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici Vaccine

Modified Live Virus, Code 16C1.22

For Use in Cats and Kittens Only

Description and General Information: Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici Vaccine, MLV is designed for nasal administration. Each of the viruses are widespread and are common disease causing agents of cats.

HESKA Feline UltraNasal FVRC Vaccine Indications

Recommended for the vaccination of healthy, susceptible cats against feline herpesvirus-1 (the cause of feline rhinotracheitis) and feline calicivirus. Cats can be vaccinated with a single dose at 12 weeks of age. If cats are vaccinated at less than 12 weeks of age, a second vaccination should be administered at 12 - 16 weeks of age. Annual revaccination is recommended.


Store out of direct sunlight at a temperature between 35°F and 45°F (2°C - 7°C). Use the entire contents of the vaccine when first opened. Do not vaccinate pregnant animals. Burn containers and all unused contents.

In rare instances, reactions can occur due to unusual sensitivity following use of this product. In such cases, administer epinephrine as an antidote. The vaccine will not protect against disease in the face of incubating feline herpesvirus, or feline calicivirus infection. Therefore, only healthy cats should be considered as candidates for vaccination.

Transient sneezing for one or more days after vaccination is not uncommon. A small number of cats may experience other mild post-vaccination side effects including ocular and/or nasal discharge, GI signs (such as vomiting) or, in rare instances, nasal or oral ulcers. These signs are usually mild and clear without treatment.

Contains gentamicin and fungistat as preservatives.
