Eurican herpes.
Eurican Herpes 205 vaccine is expected to be back in stock in October.

The vaccine is indicated for active immunisation of bitches to prevent mortality, clinical signs and lesions in puppies resulting from canine herpesvirus infections acquired in the first few days of life through passive immunity.

It is generally used in breeding bitches as part of a management strategy to reduce the risk of disease in the puppies. It is the only vaccine indicated for this use.

‘Unforeseen delays’

A spokesman for Merial said: “The issue has arisen due to unforeseen manufacturing delays and we expect to be back in stock in October.

“We recognise supply issues have implications and apologise for any inconvenience, and are doing everything we can to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.

“We can offer support from our technical advisors if vets would like to discuss particular cases.”
