This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Zoetis

Canine Distemper-Adenovirus Type 2-Parainfluenza Vaccine

Modified Live Virus

For use in dogs only

Thimerosal free

For vaccination of healthy dogs 6 weeks of age or older as an aid in preventing disease caused by canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus type 1, canine adenovirus type 2, and canine parainfluenza virus. Vaccination and revaccination according to label directions have been demonstrated (under field conditions) to result in serum antibody titers that persist for 12-48 months against CAV-1 (SN ≥ 1:16), CAV-2 (SN ≥ 1:16) and CPI virus (SN ≥ 1:16).

Directions For Use

Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine with the sterile diluent provided, shake well, and administer 1 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly. Healthy dogs should receive 2 doses administered 3-4 weeks apart. If dogs are vaccinated before the age of 4 months, they should be revaccinated upon reaching 4 months of age. (Maternal antibodies may interfere with development of an adequate immune response in puppies less than 4 months old.) The need for annual booster vaccinations has not been established for this product; consultation with a veterinarian is recommended.

Precautions

Store at 2°-8°C. Prolonged exposure to higher temperatures and/or direct sunlight may adversely affect potency. Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened. Sterilized syringes and needles should be used to administer this vaccine. Do not sterilize with chemicals because traces of disinfectant may inactivate the vaccine. Inactivate unused contents before disposal. Contains gentamicin as preservative. Vaccination of pregnant bitches should be avoided. As with many vaccines, anaphylaxis may occur after use. Initial antidote of epinephrine is recommended and should be followed with appropriate supportive therapy. Do not mix with other products, except as specified above. In case of human exposure, contact a physician.

Technical inquiries should be directed to Zoetis Inc. Veterinary Services, (888) 963-8471 (USA), (800) 461-0917 (Canada).

This product has been shown to be efficacious in healthy animals. A protective immune response may not be elicited if animals are incubating an infectious disease, are malnourished or parasitized, are stressed due to shipment or environmental conditions, are otherwise immunocompromised, or the vaccine is not administered in accordance with label directions.
