Species: Dogs Therapeutic indication: Immunological veterinary medical products: For dogs Active ingredient: Vaccine Antigens Product:Canigen KC Product index: Canigen KC
Live freeze-dried vaccine with accompanying diluent. Each dose of 0.4 ml contains: At least 10 8.0 cfu of Bordetella bronchiseptica strain B-C2. At least 10 3.0 TCID50 of canine parainfluenza virus strain Cornell.
Active immunisation of dogs against Bordetella bronchiseptica and canine parainfluenza virus for periods of increased risk; to reduce clinical signs induced by B. bronchiseptica and canine parainfluenza virus and to reduce shedding of canine parainfluenza virus. Reduction of shedding of B. bronchiseptica has been shown from 3 months after vaccination. Onset of immunity against Bordetella bronchiseptica has been demonstrated 72 hours after vaccination, and against canine parainfluenza virus three weeks after vaccination. Duration of immunity: 1 year.
Dogs should be at least 3 weeks of age. When Canigen KC is concurrently administered (i.e. not mixed) with another Canigen vaccine as indicated below, dogs should not be younger than the minimum age recommended for the other Canigen vaccine. Allow the diluent to reach room temperature before use. Aseptically reconstitute the freeze-dried vaccine with the sterile diluent provided, shake well, replace the needle with the applicator tip and administer 0.4 ml into one nostril. The head of the dog should be held in a normal upright position, place the applicator tip in front of one of the nostrils and carefully administer the whole contents of the syringe into this nostril. One dose should be given at least 72 hours prior to each period of anticipated risk e.g. temporary kenneling. In the case of repeated and/or continuous risk, annual re-vaccination is recommended.
Particularly in very young susceptible puppies, mild discharges from the eyes and nose can occur from the day after vaccination, sometimes accompanied by sneezing and coughing. Signs are generally transient, but in occasional cases may persist for up to four weeks. In animals which show more severe signs, appropriate antibiotic treatment may be indicated. In very rare cases lethargy and vomiting may occur after vaccination. Only healthy dogs should be vaccinated. Cats, pigs and unvaccinated dogs may react to the vaccine strains with mild and transient respiratory signs. Other animals, like rabbits and small rodents have not been tested. Do not administer in conjunction with other intranasal treatments or during antibiotic treatment. If antibiotics are administered within one week after vaccination, the vaccination should be repeated after the antibiotic treatment is finished. Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that this vaccine can be administered on the same day, but not mixed, with the live vaccines of the Canigen series against canine distemper, canine contagious hepatitis caused by canine adenovirus type 1, canine parvovirus disease and respiratory disease caused by canine adenovirus type 2, where authorised, and inactivated vaccines of the Canigen series against canine leptospirosis caused by all or some of the following serovars: L. interrogans serogroup Canicola serovar Canicola, L. interrogans serogroup Icterohaemorrhagiae serovar Copenhageni, L. interrogans serogroup Australis serovar Bratislava, and L. kirschneri serogroup Grippotyphosa serovar Bananal/Liangguang. No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product except the products mentioned above. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis. Immunocompromised individuals should avoid any contact with the vaccine and vaccinated dogs for up to six weeks after vaccination. KEEP OUT OF REACH AND SIGHT OF CHILDREN For animal treatment only
Store at +2°C to +8°C. Allow the vaccine and diluent to reach room temperature. The vaccine should be used within 1 hour after reconstitution. Dispose of waste material by boiling, incineration or immersion in an appropriate disinfectant in accordance with national requirements.
Legal category: POM-V
Cartons of 5 single dose vials with diluent.
The vaccine can be used during pregnancy. 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.
