Water for injections q.s. 1 ml
Active immunisation of cats aged 8 weeks and older against feline viral rhinotracheitis to reduce clinical signs and against calicivirus infection to reduce clinical signs and viral excretion. Onsets of immunity have been demonstrated 1 week after primary vaccination course for rhinotracheitis and calicivirus components.
The duration of immunity is 1 year after the last (re)vaccination.
Dosage and administration
1 ml subcutaneous injection after reconstitution of the freeze-dried pellet with the solvent, according to the following schedule:
First injection: from 8 weeks of age,
Second injection: 3 to 4 weeks later.
Where high levels of maternal antibodies against R or C components are expected to be present (e.g. in kittens of 9 - 12 weeks of age born from queens which were vaccinated before pregnancy and/or with known or suspected previous exposure to the pathogen(s)), the primary vaccination course should be delayed until 12 weeks of age.
