Media’s vaccine claim ‘blatantly untrue’ – WSAVA

Former WSAVA president Michael Day has rebutted The Daily Telegraph’s article claiming the association was recommending vets avoid using MSD’s Nobivac L4 leptospirosis vaccine on puppies younger than 12 weeks.

Describing the statement as “blatantly untrue”, he said: “The WSAVA would never ‘urge owners’ and would never make recommendations about individual named commercial products.”

Prof Day added: “The WSAVA guidelines are available online and this journalist has clearly not undertaken adequate research before publishing this article.”
