Nobivac® Lepto



The bivalent vaccine against leptospirosis. Dogs are protected against clinical disease and also against becoming renal shedders after challenge.



Description
Nobivac Lepto is a bivalent inactivated vaccine conferring protection against leptospirosis caused by Leptospira canicola and icterohaemorrhagiae and preventing development of the renal carrier state. This is of critical importance since renal shedding can potentially lead to infection of people. After the initial vaccination schedule with Nobivac Lepto, and subsequent annual booster vaccinations, the duration of immunity induced is 1 year.
The product is presented in single dose vials in liquid form and can be used to reconstitute Nobivac DHPPi. A combination vaccine with Nobivac Rabies (Nobivac RL) is available globally. A combination vaccine with Nobivac Corona (Nobivac LC) is available in the USA and a number of non-EU countries. The leptospirosis fractions of Nobivac RL and Nobivac LC are identical to those in Nobivac Lepto.

Composition
