For the active immunisation of healthy puppies and dogs to prevent clinical signs including leucopenia and reduce viral shedding caused by canine parvovirus (type 2a), to prevent mortality and clinical signs including leucopenia and reduce viral shedding caused by canine parvovirus (types 2b and 2c), and to reduce clinical signs and infection due to Leptospira canicola and Leptospira icterohaemorrhagiae.
Onset of immunity occurs by approximately two weeks after the last dose of the Basic Vaccination Scheme. Onset of immunity for the canine parvovirus component (type 2b) occurs 7 days after a single dose when animals are vaccinated from 9 weeks of age.
The duration of immunity is at least 12 months.
Dosage and administration
Shake well and immediately inject the entire contents of the vial (1 ml) subcutaneously. Do not use chemically sterilised syringes or needles, as these will interfere with the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Basic Vaccination Scheme:
Puppies younger than 10 weeks of age:
Two doses of Vanguard CPV-L at least 14 days apart. The first dose can be given as young as 7 weeks of age. The second dose should not be given until at least 10 weeks of age.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not vaccinate unhealthy or pregnant animals.
Vaccinated dogs may have a transient swelling 4-6 hours after vaccination which resolves after approximately 7 days. If a systemic anaphylactic reaction occurs (e.g. vomiting) administer adrenaline or an equivalent.
Occasional, transient swellings may occur at the injection site after vaccination with an overdose. No treatment is necessary in most cases of overdose. However, if a systemic anaphylactic reaction occurs (eg vomiting) administer adrenaline or an equivalent.
The canine parvovirus vaccinal strain may be shed from vaccinated animals for a number of days following vaccination. However, due to the low pathogenicity of this strain, it is not necessary to keep vaccinated animals separated from non-vaccinated animals.
High levels of maternally derived antibodies (MDA) may interfere with the response to vaccination. Although the vaccine has been shown to be efficacious in the presence of levels of MDA that are likely to be encountered under field conditions, where for any reason it is likely that particularly high levels of MDA are present (for example against the CPV component), this should be taken into account when planning the timing of vaccinations.
In case of accidental self-injection, wash the area immediately with water. If symptoms develop, seek medical attention showing a copy of the product literature.
Store and transport at +2°C to +8°C. Do not freeze.

A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be decided on a case by case basis.
