Directions:Aseptically rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine (Vanguard Plus 5 L4) with the accompanying vial of adjuvanted liquid vaccine (Vanguard CV), shake well, and administer 1 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly. 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. Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended.
