Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Only healthy animals should be vaccinated. The vaccine may not be effective in animals incubating the disease at the time of vaccination.
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. Immuno-competence of the animal may be compromised by a variety of factors including poor health, nutritional status, genetic factors, concurrent drug therapy and stress.
Some animals may be immunologically incompetent and fail to respond to vaccination. 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.
Transient local reactions such as non-painful diffuse to firm swellings of approximately 1 cm in diameter may be observed for up to 3 weeks after subcutaneous vaccination.
In the rare event of a hypersensitivity reaction following vaccination, administer an antihistamine, corticosteroid or adrenaline, without delay and by the most immediate route.
After administration of an overdose no effects other than those described above occurred.
The presence of maternal antibodies can interfere with the response to vaccination.
Can be used during pregnancy in dogs. There are no laboratory data on use during pregnancy in other species, but on the basis of field experience, such use is expected to be safe.
No information is available on the safety and efficacy from the concurrent use of this vaccine with any other except Virbac vaccines of the Canigen range containing one or more of the following:
live canine distemper, canine adenovirus, canine parvovirus and canine parainfluenza and inactivated canine leptospirosis antigens. It is therefore recommended that no other vaccines than these should be administered within 14 days before or after vaccination with Canigen Rabies.
Do not mix with any other medicinal products.
Withdrawal period
Not applicable.
For animal treatment only. Keep out of reach and sight of children.
