Expand All
    • Defensor 3 is prepared from cell-culture-grown, chemically-inactivated rabies virus. The seed virus is a highly immunogenic, fixed strain of rabies virus which originated from Louis Pasteur’s original isolate in 1882. The inactivated virus is formulated with a highly purified adjuvant and a dual buffering system that restricts the pH to a very narrow safe range with an outstanding comfort of administration profile.
    • It is packaged in a liquid form.
    • For the vaccination of healthy dogs, cats, cattle and sheep as an aid in preventing rabies.
  • Dogs and Cats:

    • Use only as directed.
    • General Directions: Shake well. Aseptically administer 1 ml subcutaneously. Dogs may be vaccinated intramuscularly or subcutaneously.
    • Primary Vaccination: Administer a single 1 ml dose at 3 months of age or older to healthy dogs and cats. A repeat dose should be administered 1 year later.
    • Revaccination: Subsequent revaccination every 3 years with a single dose is recommended.
