How to Use
General Directions: Vaccination of healthy dogs is recommended. Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine (Vanguard Plus 5 L4) with the accompanying vial of liquid vaccine (Vanguard CV), shake well, and administer 1 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
Primary Vaccination: Healthy dogs should receive 2 doses administered 3 weeks apart, followed by a single dose of Vanguard CV 3 weeks later. To avoid the potential for maternal antibody interference, dogs vaccinated at less than 9 weeks of age should receive 3 doses of the combination vaccine, each administered 3 weeks apart.
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.
