Canigen Lepto 2 Liquid Suspension for Dogs.
For active immunisation of dogs to reduce infection with Leptospira interrogans serovar canicola and
Leptospira interrogans serovar icterohaemorrhagiae.
Canigen Lepto2 significantly reduces the number of animals which develop a carrier condition after
L. canicola and L. icterohaemorrhagiae infection.
The duration of immunity induced by the vaccine was established as at least one year.
Canigen Lepto2 can be used alone or as a diluent for other freeze dried Canigen dog vaccines.

In the rare event of a hypersensitivity reaction following vaccination, administer an antihistamine, corticosteroid or adrenaline, without delay and by the most immediate route.
A local reaction of limited size may occur during the first few days after vaccination.
The vaccine may not be effective in dogs incubating the disease at the time of vaccination.
Some animals may be immunologically incompetent and fail to respond to vaccination (see further information).
Animals that have received the corresponding anti-serum or immunosuppressive drugs should not be vaccinated until an interval of at least 4 weeks has elapsed.
No information is available on the safety and efficacy from the concurrent use of this vaccine with any other except Canigen DHPPi, PPi and Pi. It is therefore recommended that no other vaccines than these should be administered within 14 days before or after vaccination with the product.

A good immune response is reliant on the reaction of an immunogenic agent and a fully competent immune system. Immunogenicity of the vaccine antigen will be reduced by poor storage or inappropriate administration.
Immunocompetence of the animal may be compromised by a variety of factors including poor health,
nutritional status, genetic factors, concurrent drug therapy and stress.
