8 weeks of age is idol. A second injection/vaccination is needed after 3 or 4 weeks. Similarly a Booster Vaccination is done after 3 or 4 weeks.In adults only annual vaccination is recommended. Sometimes in puppies high level of maternally derived antibodies may interfere with protection.
A slight, reversible and possibly painful oedema or thickening may occur at the site of injection within hours following vaccination.It spontaneously disappears within a few days without treatment. As with any vaccine, occasional hypersensitivity reaction may be observed in some animals. In such case, appropriate symptomatic treatment should be administered
The vaccine should be administered in accordance with standard aseptic condition for vaccination. Only healthy and dewormed animals should be vaccination.Vaccination of pregnant bitches should be avoided. Avoid exposure of the animal to infection for 21 days following vaccination. Do not administer any corticosteroids or antiviral drugs preceding or following vaccination. Do not administer any corticosteroids or antiviral drigs preceding or following vaccination. However,some dogs may be unable to develop or maintain an adequate immune response after vaccination due to various factors,such as incubating disease, malnourishment,parasite infection, or stress.
For the active immunisation of healthy dogs,cats,cattle,sheep,goats,ferrets,foxes and horses (and in principle all healthy mammals) aginst Rabies. Nobivac Rabies can be used for both prophylactic(pre-exposure) immunisation and for post-bitr treatment(post-exposure prophylaxis). Post-bite treatment(post-exposure prophylaxis) should not be us3ed as an alternative to avoid vaccinating animals prophylactically(pre-exposure).It is recommended that all animals at risk of exposure are vaccinated prophylactically.post-bite treatment (post-exposure prophylaxis) should be carried out under strict supervision of a registered vwterinary practitioner only.
In all species,repeated single doses of vaccine should be administered
|1st||Day 0(as soon as possible following bite/exposure)|
Vaccination leads to ahigh peak of antibody levels within 3 weeks. Whilst post-bite treatment(post exposure prophylaxis) will,if administered promptly, protect the majority of exposed animals from developing still occur in individual cases. It is therefore vitally important that owners are informed about this and that they are advised to monitor their animal closely for any signs of disease for the remainder of the incubation period. Should any suspicious signs appear, the animal should be treated as potentially rabid, and immediate veterinary advice should be sought.
