PUREVAX® Feline Rabies. Safe and effective immunity without adjuvants.
Rabies is 100% fatal once clinical signs appear.1 A cat’s natural curiosity puts it at risk for contact with potential sources of rabies infection, usually raccoons, bats and skunks. In 2011 in the U.S., rabies in cats was diagnosed three times more commonly than rabies in dogs.2AAFP suggests that ... “veterinarians use less inflammatory products whenever possible.” 3
Extra peace of mind from advanced technology.
PUREVAX Feline Rabies vaccine:
- Uses advanced recombinant canarypox-vectored vaccine technology
- Stimulates a comprehensive immune response, including both humoral and cell-mediated immunity4
- Is the only nonadjuvanted feline rabies vaccine
- Is approved for kittens as young as 12 weeks of age5

Adjuvants can present potential risks to feline patients.
