Leptospira Canicola-Grippotyphosa-Icterohaemorrhagiae-Pomona Bacterial Extract
Not intended for use as diluent for live vaccines.*
For Use in Dogs Only
This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy dogs 6 weeks of age or older against Leptospira canicola, Leptospira grippotyphosa, Leptospira icterohaemorrhagiae and Leptospira pomona. The duration of immunity for these antigens has not been determined. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data go to productdata.aphis.usda.gov.
Dose: Inject one 1 mL dose subcutaneously using aseptic technique. 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. All dogs should receive one dose of LeptoVax 4 and a second dose 2 to 3 weeks later. 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.
