Nobivac Tricat is regarded by many as the standard vaccination used to protect cats against Flu and Enteritis. It comes as a freeze-dried powder in a single-dose bottle and has to be mixed with a diluent immediately before use. The diluent can either be Nobivac Solvent, or Nobivac FeLV if protection against Feline Leukaemia is also required.

Lyophilisate and solvent for suspension for injection. Off-white lyophilisate.
Active immunisation of cats:
-to reduce the clinical signs caused by infection with feline calicivirus (FCV) and feline herpes virus type 1 (FHV),
-to prevent the clinical signs, leucopenia and virus excretion caused by infection with feline panleucopenia virus (FPLV). Onset of immunity: for FCV and FHV: 4 weeks; for FPLV: 3 weeks.
Duration of immunity for FCV and FHV: 1 year, for FPLV: 3 years.
See section “Use during pregnancy”.
Maternal antibodies, which may persist up to the age of 9-12 weeks, can have a negative influence on the efficacy of vaccination. In the presence of maternal antibodies, vaccination may not completely prevent the clinical signs, leucopenia and virus excretion following an FPLV infection. In such cases where a relatively high level of maternally derived antibodies is expected, the vaccination schedule should be planned accordingly.
Only healthy animals should be vaccinated.
In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
A slight painful swelling may be observed at the injection site for 1-2 days. A slight transient rise in body temperature (up to 40°C) may occur for 1-2 days. In some cases sneezing, coughing, nasal discharge, and a slight dullness or reduced appetite may be observed for up to 2 days post vaccination. In very rare cases, the vaccine may cause hypersensitivity reactions (pruritus, dyspnoea, vomiting, diarrhoea and collapse).
Do not use during pregnancy or lactation, as the product has not been tested in pregnant or lactating queens. Live FPL virus can cause reproductive problems in pregnant queens and birth defects in the progeny.
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.
Use 1 ml solvent to reconstitute the lyophilisate (= 1 single dose). Bring the vaccine to room temperature and administer 1 ml of the vaccine per animal by subcutaneous injection. Use sterile injection equipment, free from traces of disinfectants.
Basic vaccination: Two single dose inoculations, 3-4 weeks apart. The first inoculation can be given from the age of 8-9 weeks and the second inoculation from the age of 12 weeks. (See also section “Special warnings”).
Revaccination: A single dose (1 ml) according to the following schedule:
Revaccination against feline calicivirus and feline herpesvirus type 1 must be given every year (with vaccines containing the F9 and G2620 strains, where available). Revaccination against feline panleucopenia virus can be given every three years (with strain MW-1 as in Nobivac Tricat Trio, where available).
At ten-fold overdose, a slight painful swelling may be observed at the injection site for 4-10 days. A slight transient rise in temperature (up to 40.8°C) may occur for 1-2 days. In some cases general discomfort, coughing, sneezing, transient lethargy and reduced appetite may be observed for a few days post vaccination.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Nobivac Tricat for Cats, including answers from our team.
I do not want to over vaccinate my cats age 13years. they have been regularly vaccinated yearly. I now read on the Nobivac site that this vaccine is a 3 year vaccine -
"Nobivac® Feline 3-HCP is a modified live virus vaccine containing attenuated strains of feline rhinotracheitis virus (FRV), calicivirus (FCV), and panleukopenia virus (FPV). This vaccine is for the vaccination of healthy cats for the prevention of disease due to feline panleukopenia virus, as an aid in prevention of disease due to feline calicivirus, and as an aid in the control of disease due to feline rhinotracheitis for 3 years following initial and booster vaccinations. Formerly known as Continuum® Feline HCP. "
Also it says Nobivac FeLV is a 2 year vaccine.
I would appreciate an answer. Thank you
Vaccination against feline panleucopaenia with Nobivac Tricat Trio can be reduced to once every 3 years. For Calcivirus and Herpes Virus, also contained in Tricat, vaccination every 3 years should be sufficient for indoor cats that don't go to cattery's at low risk of exposure. However for a cat at higher risk of exposure – one that visits boarding catteries, has an indoor-outdoor lifestyle or is from a multi-cat household – annual vaccination is recommended. In this instance you could give Tricat once every 3 years and Ducat in the interim years.
