VANGUARD Plus CPV is licensed for vaccination of healthy dogs 6 weeks of age or older as an aid in the prevention of canine parvoviral enteritis caused by canine parvovirus (CPV). In addition, cross-protection against CPV type 2c has been demonstrated.
VANGUARD Plus CPV is a high-titer, modified-live canine parvovirus (CPV) strain attenuated by low passage on an established canine cell line. The combination of high titer and low passage gives VANGUARD Plus CPV the immunogenic properties capable of stimulating active immunity in the presence of maternal antibodies.
1. General Directions: Vaccination of healthy dogs is recommended. Shake well. Aseptically administer 1 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
2. Primary Vaccination: Healthy dogs 6 weeks of age or older should receive 3 doses, each administered 3 weeks apart.
3. Revaccination: Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended, although, as recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association and its Council on Biologic and Therapeutic Agents, the attending veterinarian should determine the frequency of revaccination based on the animal’s lifestyle and risk of exposure.*
