|Dosage and Administration||Recommended vaccination program. In any population of dogs a very small proportion may fail to adequately respond to vaccination due to concurrent illness, stress, immunosuppression, genetic factors or the presence of maternal antibodies. The epidemiology of each disease, the likely persistence of maternal antibodies and the dog's history and environment should be considered when deciding on a suitable vaccination program for a particular animal.Reconstitute the freeze dried Protech C4 vaccine with sterile water for injection (1 mL), Protech C2i vaccine or Protech BB. Inject subcutaneously within 20 minutes of reconstitution. Do not use chemicals or disinfectants to sterilise the skin, needles or syringes. A new sterile syringe and needle should always be used to administer this vaccine.Primary vaccination program. Puppies less than 10 weeks of age. Vaccination of puppies at 6, 8 and 10 weeks is highly recommended to maximise protection. When puppies present for their first vaccination at 8 weeks of age, a second vaccination at 10 weeks is recommended. Vaccination according to these programs provides 12 months' protection against diseases caused by canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus types 1 and 2, canine parainfluenza virus and canine parvovirus. Puppies and dogs 10 weeks of age or older. One dose. In previously unvaccinated dogs 10 weeks of age or older, a single dose is sufficient to confer 12 months' protection against disease caused by canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus types 1 and 2, and canine parvovirus. However, to ensure optimal cover it is highly recommended that a vaccination program be instituted at an earlier age as described above. In cases where protection against canine parainfluenza is required, at least two doses of parainfluenza vaccine are needed to provide 12 months' protection.Annual revaccination. It is recommended that dogs be revaccinated annually with Protech C4 to ensure continuity of protection. For protection against Bordetella bronchiseptica, annual revaccination with Protech Bronchi-Shield III or Protech Bronchi-Shield Oral is recommended. Annual revaccination against canine coronavirus and Leptospira interrogans serovar Copenhageni is recommended using Protech C2i Vaccine. Protech C2i may be used as a diluent for Protech C4. Two doses two to four weeks apart will protect against Leptospira interrogans serovar Copenhageni and canine coronavirus. Protech BB may be used as a diluent for this vaccine.|
