Merial, Inc. Launches Combination Vaccine to Help Prevent Core Canine Diseases and Provide Comprehensive Leptospirosis Protection

Merial Inc. announced the availability of its RECOMBITEK® C8 vaccine, a nonadjuvanted combination vaccine that helps protect dogs from the four common leptospirosis serovars and several core canine diseases in a combination injection. It is the only vaccine that helps prevents leptospirosis and leptospiruria (shedding) for three serovars. With the addition of this vaccine, Merial further extends its canine vaccine portfolio and further solidifies its position as a leader in vaccine production. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection affecting humans and animals. It is typically spread through direct contact with an infected animal, or more commonly by exposure to water sources contaminated by the urine of an infected animal. Dogs, even those kept primarily indoors, are especially at risk because of their increased exposure to potentially contaminated water (i.e. lakes, puddles, dew, etc.), soil and wildlife (i.e. raccoons, squirrels, opossums, etc.). Responsible pet ownership, including vaccination, helps pet owners protect their pets from this devastating disease. RECOMBITEK C8 and RECOMBITEK 4 Lepto are the only vaccines that help: prevent leptospirosis caused by Leptospira canicola, L. grippotyphosa, and L. icterohaemorrhagiae and aids in the prevention of L. pomona; prevent dogs from shedding bacteria into the environment after exposure; provide more than 15-month duration of immunity.
