Directions For Use

Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine with the sterile diluent provided. Shake well. Using sterile dropper, inoculate nasal passages with entire volume of vaccine. Alternatively, 1 drop of vaccine may be placed in each eye and the remainder placed into nasal passages. Administer vaccine within 30 minutes after rehydration. Healthy cats 12 weeks of age or older should receive one 0.5-mL dose. Cats vaccinated at less than 12 weeks of age should be revaccinated at 12 weeks of age. Historically, annual revaccination with this product was recommended. The need for annual booster vaccinations has not been established; consultation with a veterinarian or the manufacturer is recommended.


Transient sneezing may be observed 4-7 days after vaccination. Oral lesions may be observed postvaccinally, but typically heal without incident. Vaccination of cats incubating or harboring latent infections may result in more pronounced upper respiratory signs, ocular irritation, or febrile response.


Store at 2°-8°C. Prolonged exposure to higher temperatures and/or direct sunlight may adversely affect potency. Do not freeze. Inactivate unused contents before disposal. Contains gentamicin as preservative. This product has not been tested in pregnant animals. 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 on the label. In case of human exposure, contact a physician.
