Parvovirus need not be a death sentence
Virbagen® Omega contains recombinant interferon omega of feline origin. Type I interferons are cytokines that act as protein messengers which induce multiple immune pathways in the cell. These include the increased production of potent anti-viral proteins and enzymes. Licensed to treat Canine Parvovirus, Virbagen® Omega is administered intravenously and is proven to decrease mortality rate when used in conjunction with supportive therapies.
