Nobivac DHPPi is our most commonly used routine vaccination for dogs. It provides protection against Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo virus and Para-influenza virus. It is supplied as a freeze-dried powder in single-use bottles and has to be diluted with either Nobivac Solvent or Nobivac Lepto 2 in order to also provide protection against Leptospirosis. A single injection of Nobivac DHPPi is sufficient to provide good immunity in most dogs any time from 10 weeks of age. Earlier vaccination can be given if the risk is considered significant, but a further dose must be given at or after 10 weeks of age. In some dogs, especially the very large breeds, adequate protection is more likely to be provided by vaccinating after 16 weeks of age, due to maternally derived immunity interfering with the vaccine.


Live vaccine containing > 104.0 TCID50 Canine distemper virus; > 104.0 TCID50 Canine adenovirus type 2; > 107.0 TCID50 Canine parvovirus, > 105.5 TCID50 Canine parainfluenza virus per dose after reconstitution.


For active immunisation of dogs to prevent mortality and clinical signs caused by canine distemper virus infection. To reduce clinical signs of infectious hepatitis and viral excretion due to canine adenovirus type 1 infection. To prevent mortality, clinical signs and viral excretion following canine parvovirus infection. To reduce clinical signs and viral excretion caused by canine parainfluenza virus infection and to reduce clinical signs of respiratory disease and viral excretion following adenovirus type 2 infection. Specific claims: An onset of immunity to the canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus and canine parvovirus vaccine components of 1 week and an onset of immunity of 4 weeks to the canine parainfluenza virus vaccine component has been demonstrated following use of the vaccine. A duration of immunity of at least three years has been established for the canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus and canine parvovirus vaccine components. The duration of immunity for the canine parainfluenza virus component has not been demonstrated, but an anamnestic response is produced in dogs given a revaccination one year after basic vaccination. Annual revaccination with the canine parainfluenza virus vaccine component is recommended.

Dosage and administration

The contents of one vial of reconstituted vaccine should be injected subcutaneously. Reconstitute immediately prior to use by the addition of the contents of one vial (1.0 ml) of Nobivac Lepto 2, Nobivac Rabies, or Nobivac Solvent.

Avoid contamination of vaccine with traces of chemical sterilising agents. Do not use chemicals such as disinfectant or spirit to disinfect the skin prior to inoculation.

Primary course vaccination: A single injection should establish active immunity to canine distemper, infectious canine hepatitis and disease caused by canine parvovirus infection in dogs of 10 weeks of age or older. Where earlier protection is required a first dose may be given to puppies from 6 weeks of age, but because maternally derived passive antibody can interfere with the response to vaccination a final dose at 10 weeks of age or older is generally recommended. For an optimal response to the parainfluenza component, animals should be vaccinated twice, 2-4 weeks apart with the final vaccination at 10 weeks of age or more. In the event that the initial primary course dose of Nobivac DHPPi is delayed to 10 weeks of age or older, a single dose of Nobivac Pi at 12 weeks of age or older should suffice to establish immunity for this component.

Booster vaccination: It is recommended that dogs be revaccinated with canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus and canine parvovirus every 3 years and against canine parainfluenzavirus every year. It was not possible to produce clinical signs of kennel cough by parainfluenza challenge in adult dogs and duration of immunity could not therefore be demonstrated, but an anamnestic response was seen in dogs given a booster one year after primary vaccination. Revaccination against parainfluenza is recommended prior to exposure to high risk environments (such as kennelling, showing or mixing with dogs of unknown vaccination history).

Further information:

Experience has shown that the maternal antibody status of pups within a litter varies greatly and reliance should not be placed on serological examination of the bitch alone.

A good immune response is reliant on the reaction of an immunogenic agent and a fully competent immune system. The immunogenicity of the vaccine antigen will be reduced by poor storage or inappropriate administration. Immunocompetence of the animal may be compromised by a variety of factors including poor health, nutritional status, genetic factors, concurrent drug therapy and stress.

Can be used in pregnant bitches which have previously been vaccinated with the CDV (strain Onderstepoort), CAV2 (strain Manhattan LPV3), CPV (strain 154) and CPi (strain Cornell) antigens included in the Nobivac vaccine series.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Only healthy dogs should be vaccinated. The vaccine may not be effective in dogs incubating the disease at the time of vaccination. Some animals may be immunologically incompetent and fail to respond to vaccination. Animals that have received the corresponding anti-serum or immunosuppressive drugs should not be vaccinated until an interval of at least 4 weeks has elapsed.

A diffuse swelling, up to 5 mm in diameter, may be observed at the site of injection. Occasionally this swelling may be hard and painful and last for up to 3 days post injection.

After subcutaneous administration with Nobivac Rabies and/or Nobivac Lepto 2, a transient palpable nodule may occasionally occur at the site of injection.

In the rare event of a hypersensitivity reaction occurring following vaccination, administer an antihistamine, corticosteroid or adrenaline, without delay and by the most immediate route.

After administration of an overdose, a response similar to that following a single dose may be seen. In some dogs the swelling may be more painful or may be observed for a longer period.

The canine parvovirus vaccine strain may be shed at very low levels for up to 8 days after inoculation. However there is no evidence of any reversion to virulence of the vaccine strain and therefore no need to separate unvaccinated dogs from contact with recently vaccinated individuals.

Safety and efficacy data are available which demonstrate that this vaccine can be administered on the same day with Nobivac Solvent, Nobivac Lepto 2 or Nobivac Rabies. These can be used to reconstitute the freeze-dried Nobivac DHPPi.

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. Do not mix with any other veterinary medicinal product except the diluent Nobivac Solvent, Nobivac Lepto 2 or Nobivac Rabies recommended for use with this product.

The efficacy of the CDV, CAV2, CPV and CPi components of the vaccine may be reduced due to maternal antibody interference. However, the vaccine has been proved to be of benefit against virulent challenge in the presence of maternal antibody levels to CDV, CAV2, CPV and CPi that are likely to be encountered under field conditions.

Withdrawal period

Vaccination enquiry

My pup was born 2.6.15 and received Nobivac DHPPi and Nobivac L4 batch c143d01 and A032a01 on 17.7.15. Please can you advise if this lasts 12mths?

  • Non-Executive Director

Your pup needs to go and have a course of 2 injections as soon as possible to be properly protected. The vaccines given are the correct type but if given at that young age, the DHPPi might only have a temporary effect. This will vary from dog to dog, but generally it needs to be given at a minimum of 10 weeks old to last for a year. The L4 needs to be given twice, with 2-4 weeks between the injections. I guess your dog was supposed to have a follow-up of the same vaccines when 10 weeks old, but that has failed. Now it is 2 visits you need, with the L4 on both, and with DHPPi on one of them.

My pup doesn't eat

Pomeranian pup

After injecting nobivac lepto and nobivac dhppi for my 3 month old Pomeranian pup doesn't eat .this is the first time we inject him after her birth. I would like to know is it common or any serious issue

  • Non-Executive Director

The puppies of very small breeds are quite prone to mild vaccine reactions, where they become subdued for a while and do not eat well. If this persists then certainly a visit to the vets would be advised, but normally it passes after a few hours.

Does this come with the dilutent?
Many thanks

  • Technical Director

The diluent does not come with the DHPPi vaccine, but can purchased separately for a small charge (£1 currently) from the Nobivac Solvent (Diluent) page if required.
