General Directions: Vaccination of healthy dogs 6 weeks of ager or older is recommended. Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine (Vanguard Plus 5 L4) with the sterile gel provided, shake well, and administer 1 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
Primary Vaccination: Healthy dogs should receive 2 doses administered 3 weeks apart. To avoid the potential for maternal antibody interference, dogs vaccinated at less than 9 weeks of age should receive 3 doses, 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.
