Vaccination Information

Multivalent vaccines are those that have more than one disease antigen
combined into one injection.

A typical multivalent vaccine is the DHLPPCv vaccine for dogs. Instead of
giving six different injections all these “vaccines” or antigens can be given in
a single small volume injection. Certainly this is easier on the dog than
getting six separate injections.

DHLPPCv stands for:

D… Canine Distemper Virus… a dangerous viral infection.
“Distemper” is an odd name for a viral infection and this disease has no
relationship to nor connection with a dog’s temperament.

H… Hepatitis…a viral infection caused by two related viruses that
mainly affects the liver.

L… Leptospirosis… a bacterial infection affecting the kidneys.
This class of bacteria can infect humans, cows, dogs, pigs and other

P… Parainfluenza… a virus that along with the Hepatitis virus can
cause upper respiratory infections.

P… Parvovirus… a severe and often fatal virus affecting the lining of
the intestinal tract.

Cv… Coronavirus… is very similar to the Parvovirus, can be very
severe, but has a somewhat different effect on the intestinal tract and
generally is not fatal.
