Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia-Rabies Vaccine

Modified Live Virus, Canarypox Vector


DESCRIPTION: PUREVAX® Feline 3/Rabies contains a nonadjuvanted lyophilized suspension of modified live feline rhinotracheitis, calici, and panleukopenia viruses; recombinant vectored rabies vaccine; plus a sterile water diluent. A canarypox vector has been modified, using recombinant technology, to produce expression of desired antigens capable of stimulating a protective immune response to rabies. Safety and immunogenicity of this product have been demonstrated by vaccination and challenge studies in susceptible cats.

INDICATIONS: PUREVAX® Feline 3/Rabies is recommended for the vaccination of healthy cats 8 weeks of age or older for prevention of disease due to feline rhinotracheitis, calici, panleukopenia, and rabies viruses.

DOSAGE: Reconstitute the lyophilized vaccine with accompanying liquid diluent and aseptically inject 1 mL (1 dose) subcutaneously into healthy cats. For primary vaccination of cats younger than 12 weeks of age, revaccinate every 3 to 4 weeks with the last dose given at or over 12 weeks of age. For primary vaccination of cats 12 weeks or older, revaccinate with a second 1 ml dose of this product or Code 16D8.21 (Purevax® Feline 3), 3 to 4 weeks later. Revaccinate annually with a single 1 mL dose.

PRECAUTIONS: Store at 2-7°C (35-45°F). Use immediately after reconstitution. Do not use chemicals to sterilize syringes and needles. Burn this container and all unused contents. Contains gentamicin as a preservative. Do not vaccinate pregnant cats. In rare instances, administration of vaccines may cause lethargy, fever, and inflammatory or hypersensitivity types of reactions. Treatment may include antihistamines, anti-inflammatories, and/or epinephrine.
