Incidences of vaccine related sarcomas (cancer) in cats are linked to adjuvanted Rabies vaccines. For some reason we donít see this problem in dogs as often as we do in cats. So, in order to provide the safest protection for our patients, we have switched to using PUREVAXô Feline Rabies vaccine by Merial for our feline patients. It is the Only Non-Adjuvanted Feline Rabies Vaccine Available.
PUREVAX Feline Rabies offers proven efficacy and a unique safety profile for your cat. Through the advanced science of recombinant technology, PUREVAX Feline Rabies is developed to use only the specific protein needed to stimulate protective immunity against rabies -- the whole rabies virus is never introduced.
For now, the Purevax Rabies vaccine is only licensed for 1 year. Eventually, we hope research will show that it also gives protection for up to 3 years.
