Canine parainfluenza virus is one of the significant causes of canine infectious respiratory disease ((CIRD) commonly referred to as kennel cough or canine cough) and is recommended for dogs that are regularly mixed or regularly come into contact with other dogs (e.g. kennelling, boarding, dog training etc.). It may cause disease in its own right or in association with other respiratory pathogens to cause more severe signs. 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 in interim years when immunity to distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus (DHP) is not needed. It is recommended that canine parainfluenza vaccination is used in conjunction with vaccination against Bordetella bronchiseptica, such as Nobivac Respira Bb, or alternatively Nobivac KC could be used, which immunises against both Bordetella bronchiseptica and canine parainfluenza virus. Information on the importance of these pathogens can be found here.

Indications for use
For active immunisation of dogs from the age of 8 weeks onwards to reduce clinical signs of canine para-influenza infection and to reduce viral shedding.
Onset of immunity: 4 weeks after vaccination.
Duration of immunity: has not been demonstrated, but an anamnestic response is produced in dogs given a revaccination one year after basic vaccination.
