AIDS IN PROTECTING PUPPIES FROM THE CD VIRUS, CAV-1, CAV-2 AND THE CPiV VIRUS
VANGUARD DAMP is for vaccination of healthy puppies 6–12 weeks of age as an aid in preventing canine distemper caused by canine distemper virus (CDV), infectious canine hepatitis caused by canine adenovirus-1 (CAV-1), respiratory disease caused by CAV-2 and canine parainfluenza caused by CPiV.
The measles virus component helps provide heterotypic immunity against CDV in puppies regardless of circulating CDV antibody levels. Heterotypic immunity should not be relied on for protection after 16 weeks of age.
It contains highly attenuated strains of CDV, human measles virus, canine adenovirus-2 (CAV-2) and canine parainfluenza virus (CPiV).
The CAV-2 component cross-immunizes against CAV-1 and immunizes against CAV-2.
