Indications for use, specifying the target species
Active immunization of dogs from 6 weeks of age:
- to prevent mortality and clinical signs caused by canine distemper virus
- to prevent clinical signs, leukopenia and viral excretion caused by canine parvovirus type 2a, 2b and 2c
Onset of immunity:
Immunity against CDV and CPV is developed within 14 days after a single dose in puppies free of maternally derived antibodies.
Duration of immunity:
The duration of immunity against CDV and CPV in puppies without maternally derived antibodies was after a single dose of Biocan Novel Puppy vaccine determined for 12 months. The duration of immunity against CDV and CPV type 2b was demonstrated serologically and by challenge, duration of immunity against CPV types 2a and 2c was demonstrated serologically.
Special warnings for each target species
Immunological responses to the CDV and CPV components may be delayed due to maternally derived antibody interference. In situations where very high maternally derived antibodies levels against CDV and CPV are expected, the vaccination with further doses of polyvalent Biocan Novel vaccines that also contain CDV and CPV should follow.
Special precautions for use
Special precautions for use in animals
Only clinically healthy animals should be vaccinated. The live virus vaccine strain CPV-2b can be spread to non-vaccinated animals but does not cause disease. Since the vaccine virus strain CPV-2b has not been tested in domestic cats and other carnivores (except dogs) that are known to be susceptible to canine parvoviruses, it is recommended vaccinated dogs to be separated from other canine and feline species after vaccination.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

- very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reactions during the course of one treatment)
- common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals)
- uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals)
- rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals)
- very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).

Annual revaccination with single dose of Biocan Novel Puppy vaccine should be given in cases that immunization against CDV and CPV is only required.It is recommended that dogs, who received one dose of Biocan Novel Puppy followed by vaccination with polyvalent Biocan Novel vaccines that also contain CDV and CPV in accordance with the relevant SPC three weeks after vaccination with Biocan Novel Puppy, should be revaccinated with canine distemper virus and canine parvovirus by polyvalent Biocan Novel vaccines every 3 years in accordance with the relevant SPC.
