|Drug Name and Strength||Live avirulent Bordetella bronchiseptica, modified live canine adenovirus (hepatitis virus), modified live canine parainfluenza virus (intranasal vaccine)|
|Indication||Active immunisation by intranasal inoculation of healthy dogs over 8 weeks of age, as an aid in preventing canine cough caused by Bordetella bronchiseptica, canine adenovirus type 2 and canine parainfluenza virus.|
|Precautions||Vaccinate only healthy dogs with normal temperatures. Dogs under treatment with immunosuppressive drugs should be vaccinated with caution. Dogs already being given antibacterial agents with activity against B. bronchiseptica should not be vaccinated since protection is dependent on the vaccine strain of B. bronchiseptica establishing itself in the respiratory tract.Do not administer the vaccine by injection; use only intranasally. Use of this vaccine in pregnant bitches is not recommended. Use all product within 20 minutes of reconstitution. B. bronchiseptica organisms of vaccine origin may be transmitted from vaccinated animals (up to six weeks following vaccination) to in-contact animals such as pregnant bitches, unhealthy pups and cats. Adequate precautions should be taken to avoid such exposure.First Aid If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126. Accidental self-injection may lead to an inflammatory response, and medical advice should be sought on the management of deep injections, particularly those near a joint or associated with bruising. If possible, the application of gentle squeezing pressure with absorbent material (e.g. facial tissues) at the injection site will swab up unabsorbed vaccine. Strong squeezing of the site should be avoided. The damaged area should be thoroughly cleansed and a topical antiseptic applied.|
|Dosage and Administration||The dose is 0.5 mL intranasally into each nostril for all breeds of dogs over 8 weeks of age. The specially designed intranasal applicator supplied with the vaccine fits on the hub of a standard 2 or 3 mL syringe. Use of this applicator simplifies intranasal administration of Protech Bronchi-Shield III for the operator and dog. A new sterile syringe must always be used to administer these vaccines. Do not use chemicals or disinfectants to sterilise the applicator, needle or syringes. Reconstitute the freeze dried vaccine with sterile water for injection (Sterile Diluent 1 mL/vial). Routine vaccination. A single dose of Protech Bronchi-Shield III given to dogs over 8 weeks of age is recommended as part of the complete Protech canine vaccination program (please refer to the directions accompanying each type of vaccine for specific directions relating to that vaccine). This may protect against canine cough caused by B. bronchiseptica, canine adenovirus 2 or canine parainfluenza virus for 12 months.Vaccinate dogs over 8 weeks of age with a single dose of Protech Bronchi-Shield III as early as possible before anticipated risk of exposure such as shows or boarding kennels to protect against canine cough caused by B. bronchiseptica, canine adenovirus 2 or canine parainfluenza virus. Revaccinate annually to maintain protection. Outbreak control. Blanket vaccination of dogs over 8 weeks of age with Protech Bronchi-Shield III, in an outbreak, will markedly reduce the spread of canine cough caused by B. bronchiseptica, canine adenovirus 2 or canine parainfluenza virus, because of the rapid development of local immunity and the wide age range (over 8 weeks of age) that will respond to vaccination.|
