Ideal first shot for puppies
Economical choice for puppies
Spectra®5 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 CAV-2 fraction cross-protects against respiratory
infection caused by infectious canine hepatitis (CAV-1).
The dosage is 1 mL injected
intramuscularly or 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.
Subcutaneous administration: 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 (see note below).
Intramuscular administration: Insert needle into muscle of the hind
limb (see illustration). 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. Puppies 9 weeks or younger: Vaccinate healthy puppies at 3-4 week intervals until 16 weeks of age for at least 3 doses. Puppies over 9 weeks and adults: Give a minimum of 2 doses at 3-4 week intervals. Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended.
