Special warnings for each target species

If any antibiotic is administered within one week after vaccination, the vaccination should be repeated after the antibiotic treatment has been completed.

Special precautions for use

Special precautions for use in animals

Only healthy cats should be vaccinated.

Sneezing by cats after administration does not adversely affect the efficacy of the veterinary medicinal product.

Do not administer during antibiotic treatment or in conjunction with any other intranasal veterinary medicinal products.

Vaccinated animals can spread the vaccine strain of Bordetella bronchiseptica for six weeks, and there may be intermittent shedding for at least one year.

Although the risk of immunocompromised humans becoming infected with Bordetella bronchiseptica is extremely low, it is advised that cats, which are in close contact with immunocompromised humans are not vaccinated with this vaccine.

Dogs, pigs and unvaccinated cats may react to the vaccine strain with mild and transient respiratory signs. Other animals, such as rabbits and small rodents, have not been tested.

Operator warnings:

In case of accidental self-administration, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.

Appropriate disinfection procedures should be used following use of this live bacterial vaccine.

Although the risk that immunocompromised humans become infected with Bordetella bronchiseptica is extremely low, such individuals should be aware that cats can shed the organism for up to 1 year after vaccination.

Adverse reactions

After administration, occasionally sneezing, coughing, mild and transient discharge from the eyes or nose, may occur. In cats that show more severe signs, appropriate antibiotic treatment may be indicated.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Do not use in pregnant or lactating queens.


No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product. 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.

Amounts to be administered and administration route

Nasal use.

Vaccination scheme:

One dose, of 0.2 ml of reconstituted vaccine at least 72 hours prior to period of anticipated risk.

Allow the solvent to reach room temperature. Aseptically reconstitute the lyophilisate with 0.3 ml of the sterile solvent provided. Shake well.

Withdraw 0.2 ml of reconstituted vaccine into a 1 ml or 2 ml syringe, remove the needle and administer the whole contents of the syringe into one of the cat’s nostrils.

The head of the cat should be held with its nose pointing upwards and its mouth closed, so that it is forced to breathe through its nostrils. Place the syringe in front of one of the nostrils and carefully administer the whole contents of the syringe into the nasal cavity via this nostril. The vaccine is administered directly from the tip of the syringe onto the opening of the nostril and enters the nasal cavity during inhalation.


No adverse reactions other than those mentioned in section "Adverse reactions" were observed after the administration of an overdose of the vaccine.

Withdrawal periods

Not applicable.
