- "Nobivak KS".With the use of this species, vaccination against diseases such as bordetellosis, parainfluenza is carried out. The vaccine is introduced through the mouth of the animal.

The use of this type of drug "Nobivak" for puppies very quickly forms their immunity, which lasts for at least a year.
- Univalent vaccine "Nobivak R". Most often it is used simultaneously with polyvalent.
- "Nobivak L". This type of use is similar to the previous one. But vaccination with its use is not from rabies, but from leptospirosis.
Basic recommendations for use
The procedure for vaccination with a tool such as a vaccine for dogs "Nobivak" is quite complicated. It can be very long in time.In the first place, depending on the age of the puppy, the type of product is determined. Two to three weeks before vaccination, the animal must be given an anthelmintic drug. It is completely useless to vaccinate dogs with worms. The vaccine just won't work.
Before the vaccination procedure, the animal is necessarily examined by a veterinarian. Vaccinated sick or weakened dog can not. The animal must have a good mood and a great appetite.
Do not vaccinate also those dogs that were recently purchased or found on the street. They are previously placed in quarantine conditions in order to determine whether they have any hidden diseases. 3-4 weeks the dog is not allowed out of the house and exclude any contact with other pets. Coupling ears and tail puppies are allowed to produce no later than three weeks before vaccination.
The drug itself should be purchased exclusively in a vet pharmacy or a veterinary clinic. You can also buy it at the pet store. It is not recommended to buy the drug from the hands, ad or on the market.
Like any other vaccine, "Nobivak" for dogs can cause an allergic reaction.An anaphylactic shock can even develop in a sensitive dog. With animals prone to allergic reactions, before vaccination, special training is needed.
For the first time a puppy should be vaccinated after it is 8-9 months old. It uses the drug DHPPi in combination with "Nobivak L." Three weeks after this, the puppy is vaccinated with the same two drugs and additionally Nobivac Rabies. The following vaccination is carried out at the age of one.
This scheme is used most often. But in some veterinary clinics, the vaccine for dogs "Nobivak" can be used a little differently. In any case, adult dogs are vaccinated annually. Of course, vaccination should be carried out under the supervision of a physician.
