Recombitek does NOT give adequate parvo protection!
June 13, 2014
I trusted Merial, who claimed their vaccine protects puppies from parvovirus. I trusted Santa Cruz Biotechnology who claim the same. I trusted the AVMA web site which states Merial vaccines ARE effective against Parvo 2c. They are ALL WRONG! We lost spring and fall litters to parvo one year, and spring litters the following year, all from trusting Merial's Recombitek for parvo, and from trusting Santa Cruz Biotechnology, and also from trusting the AVMA. We had 13 years of a successful breeding program. Our 14th year, while we were using Merial's Recombitek vaccines for parvo protection, we were utterly destroyed emotionally and financially. Of course, Merial can say we did something wrong, however, how can they explain 13 years of success if we're so incompetent? Now we're using Duramune for parvo protection with perfect success so far. Whatever you do, DO NOT RELY ON RECOMBITEK FOR PARVO PROTECTION!
