  • For primary immunization, administer 1 dose (0.5 mL) subcutaneously as early as 8 weeks of age followed by a second dose 3 to 4 weeks later

  • Effective for the vaccination of healthy dogs 8 weeks of age or older against canine influenza virus H3N2

  • 25 doses per tray

  • Safety has been demonstrated in dogs 8 weeks of age and older

*The standardized method of evaluating efficacy of canine influenza vaccines is based on lung lobe consolidation.2

† Two doses of Nobivac® NXT Canine Flu H3N2 were administered to 8-week-old puppies, subcutaneously, 3 weeks apart. Clinical observations were recorded for 10 days post-challenge, and nasal swabs were collected for 10 consecutive days to determine viral shedding. Lungs were evaluated 10 days following challenge.

A field safety study proved Nobivac® NXT Canine Flu H3N2 to be well tolerated in a wide range of canine patients1

  • 1,301 doses administered to 654 dogs of various breeds
  • Dogs ranged in age from 8 weeks to 15 years
  • Lethargy was the most common adverse event (1.6%)

Canine influenza virus (CIV) causes a respiratory infection in dogs that is also known as dog flu. The infection is very contagious to other dogs. Laboratory surveillance indicates the H3N2 strain of CIV as the critical strain of concern.1
