Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici Vaccine

Modified Live Virus



DESCRIPTION: PUREVAX® Feline Respiratory 2 contains a non adjuvanted lyophilized suspension of modified live feline rhinotracheitis and calici viruses, each propagated in a stable cell line, plus sterile water diluent. Safety and immunogenicity of this product have been demonstrated by vaccination and challenge tests in susceptible cats.

INDICATIONS: PUREVAX® Feline Respiratory 2 is recommended for the vaccination of healthy cats 6 weeks of age and older for prevention of disease due to feline rhinotracheitis and calici viruses.

DOSAGE: Reconstitute the lyophilized vaccine with accompanying liquid diluent and aseptically inject 1 mL (1 dose) subcutaneously or intramuscularly into healthy cats. For primary vaccination, revaccinate with a second 1 mL dose 3 to 4 weeks later. Cats younger than 12 weeks of age should be revaccinated with a single 1 mL dose every 3 to 4 weeks, the last dose given at or over 12 weeks of age. 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. It is generally recommended to avoid the vaccination of 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.
