Solo-Jec 5 Indications

This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy dogs and puppies against canine distemper virus (CDV), canine adenovirus types 1 and 2 (CAV1 & CAV2), canine parainfluenza (CPIV), and canine parvovirus (CPV). This product was licensed prior to the requirement to establish a minimum age for use. The duration of immunity has not been determined. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data go to


Solo-Jec® 5 vaccine is a combination of immunogenic, attenuated strains of CDV, CAV-2, CPIV, and CPV type 2b, propagated in cell line tissue cultures. The CAV-2 fraction cross-protects against disease due to CAV-1. Amphotericin B, gentamicin, and thimerosal added as preservatives.

Directions and dosage: Open the syringe by twisting or tapping the cap against a hard surface to break the heat weld. Aseptically rehydrate the vaccine cake with 1 mL of vaccine diluent supplied. Shake well. Withdraw entire contents into the syringe. Administer one 1 mL dose intramuscularly or subcutaneously. Subcutaneous administration: Lift the loose skin behind the neck or behind the front leg and insert needle. Inject entire contents of syringe. Do not inject directly into blood vessel (see note below). Intramuscular administration: Insert needle into muscle of the hind limb (see illustration). Inject entire contents of syringe. Do not inject directly into blood vessel. Important note: Before injecting vaccine, pull back slightly on syringe plunger. If blood enters the syringe freely, choose another injection site. Administer a second dose 3 to 4 weeks later. 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. The need for annual booster vaccination has not been established for this product. For advice on revaccination frequency, contact your veterinarian or the manufacturer.


Only vaccinate healthy animals. Animals incubating any disease or stressed due to shipping, malnutrition, or parasitism may not achieve or maintain an adequate immune response. In case of anaphylactoid reaction, administer epinephrine. In case of human exposure, contact a physician. Inactivate unused contents before disposal.

Do not vaccinate pregnant animals. Under no circumstances is this product recommended for use in ferrets or mink. Store out of direct sunlight at 35-46°F (2-8°C). Do not freeze. Do not mix with other products, except as specified on the label.
