Canine parainfluenza virus is a cause of respiratory infection. It may cause disease in its own right or is association with other respiratory pathogens to cause more severe signs. Puppies and senior dogs with concurrent health issues may be at greatest risk. Note that Nobivac KC provides an alternative approach which provides protection agains two significant infectious triggers for respiratory disease in dogs. The disease is highly infectious and transmitted readily by aerosols (coughing or sneezing). Nobivac Pi is most often used as an annual booster vaccine for Nobivac DHPPi interim years when immunity to distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus (DHP) is not needed.
