Dosage and administration
Reconstitute one dose of lyophilisate with one dose of solvent, shake gently and administer immediately.
Administer subcutaneously one dose of the veterinary medicinal product according to the following regimen of vaccination.
-first injection in kittens from 8 weeks of age
-second injection 3 or 4 weeks later
Maternally derived antibodies can negatively influence the immune response to vaccination. In such cases where maternally derived antibodies are expected, a third injection may be appropriate from 15 weeks of age.
Following a first booster vaccination one year after the primary vaccination course, subsequent vaccinations can be performed at intervals of three years for the leukaemia component. In this case, since annual revaccination is required for calcivirus, rhinotracheitis virus and panleucopenia virus components, a single dose of Feligen RCP can be used annually.
This vaccine can be used as a booster for kittens or cats previously vaccinated with FELIGEN RCP and LEUCOGEN separately.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
The feline calicivirus and feline panleucopenia virus vaccinal strains can spread. It has been demonstrated that this spread did not cause adverse reactions on non-vaccinated cats.
Maternally derived antibodies, especially those against feline panleucopenia virus, can negatively influence the immune response to vaccination.
Special precautions for use in animals
-Vaccinate only healthy animals.
-De-worming at least 10 days prior to vaccination is recommended.
-Only FeLV negative cats should be vaccinated. Therefore, a test for presence of FeLV before vaccination is recommended.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
After the first injection, a moderate and transient local reaction (<2 cm) could occur (oedema, swelling, nodule). This reaction resolves spontaneously within 3 to 4 weeks at the most. After the second injection, and subsequent administrations, this reaction is markedly reduced. In rare cases, pain at palpation, sneezing or conjunctivitis may be noted, that resolves without any treatment. The transient usual signs following vaccination may also be observed, such as: hyperthermia (lasting 1 to 4 days), apathy, digestive disturbances. In case of anaphylactic shock, appropriate symptomatic treatment should be administered.
Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay
Do not use in pregnant cats. Use is not recommended during lactation.
