Eurican vaccination

  • Eurican Herpes 205 » Single injection with Solvent £35.91


Eurican Herpes vaccine is used to produce an active immunity in breeding bitches, which is then transferred passively to the puppies. This protects the puppies from illness and death (part of the fading puppy syndrome) which can otherwise occur in the first few days of life. The vaccine needs to be given at specific times during pregnancy.


Powder and solvent for emulsion for injection. Each 1ml dose contains 0.3-1.75 μg of canine herpesvirus (F205 strain) gB glycoprotein antigens in a light paraffin oil adjuvant.


Active immunisation of bitches to prevent mortality, clinical signs and lesions in puppies resulting from canine herpes virus infections acquired in the first few days of life.

Dosage and administration

Two 1-ml doses of vaccine, administered by subcutaneous route, according to the following schedule:

First injection: Either during heat or 7 – 10 days after the presumed date of mating.

Second injection: 1 to 2 weeks before the expected date of whelping.

Revaccination: during each pregnancy, according to the same schedule.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Vaccinate only healthy animals.

Eurican Herpes 205 is specifically indicated during pregnancy.

There are no contra-indications for Eurican Herpes 205.

The injection of the vaccine may cause a transient oedema at the site of injection in up to 10% of animals. These reactions usually regress within one week. As with any vaccine, a hypersensitivity reaction may occur. These are rare and appropriate symptomatic treatment should be administered.
