What is Purevax RCP FeLV? Purevax RCP FeLV is a vaccine containing the following active substances: • attenuated (weakened) feline rhinotracheitis herpesvirus (FHV F2 strain), • inactivated (killed) calicivirosis antigens (FCV 431 and G1 strains), • attenuated feline panleucopenia virus (PLI IV), • feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) recombinant canarypox virus (vCP97). Purevax RCP FeLV is a lyophilisate (freeze-dried pellet) and solvent that are made up into a suspension for injection. What is Purevax RCP FeLV used for? Purevax RCP FeLV is used to vaccinate cats from the age of 8 weeks against the following diseases: • feline viral rhinotracheitis (a flu-like illness caused by a herpesvirus), • feline calicivirosis (a flu-like illness with inflammation of the mouth caused by a calicivirus), • feline panleucopenia (a serious illness causing bloody diarrhoea caused by a parvovirus), • feline leukaemia (an illness affecting the immune system caused by a retrovirus). The vaccine helps to reduce the symptoms of the diseases and helps to reduce viral excretion in case of calicivirus infection. It can also prevent death due to panleucopenia and prevent FeLV from remaining in the blood. After Purevax RCP FeLV has been made up, 1 ml is injected under the skin. The first injection should be given in cats aged at least eight weeks, with a second injection three to four weeks later. If the cat has high levels of antibodies inherited from the mother, the first vaccination should be delayed until 12 weeks of age. The cat should be revaccinated for all components one year after the first vaccination course, then every year for rhinotracheitis, calicivirosis and feline leukaemia, and every three years for panleucopenia.
