9-way protection Economical Annual Booster
Spectra® 9 vaccine is a combination of immunogenic, attenuated
strains of Canine Distemper, Canine Adenovirus Type 2 (CAV-2), Canine
Parainfluenza, and Canine Parvovirus Type 2b, propagated in cell line
tissue cultures. The diluent contains killed antigens for Leptospira Canicola-Grippotyphosa-Icterohaemorrhagiae-Pomona
bacterial extract. The CAV-2 fraction cross-protects against
respiratory infection caused by infectious canine hepatitis (CAV-1).
The dosage is 1 mL injected
subcutaneously. Open syringe by twisting or tapping the cap against a
hard surface to break the heat weld. Prepare the vaccine by injecting
the diluent into the vial containing the desiccated vaccine cake. Shake
well. Withdraw entire contents into the syringe. Thoroughly prepare
injection site with antiseptic. Lift the loose skin behind the neck or
behind front leg and insert needle. Inject entire contents of syringe.
Do not inject directly into blood vessel.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before injecting vaccine, pull back slightly on
syringe plunger. If blood enters the syringe freely, choose another
injection site. A recommended vaccination schedule should start at
or about 6 weeks of age. The presence of maternal antibody is known to
interfere with the development of active immunity. Puppies should be
revaccinated every 2 to 3 weeks until at least 16 weeks of age. All dogs
over 12 weeks of age should initially receive one dose of Spectra® 6
and a second dose 2 to 3 weeks later. Annual revaccination with a single
dose is recommended.
