In his recent book "Ferret Husbandry, Medicine and Surgery", Dr. John
Lewington states that ferrets should never be vaccinated in an
"assembly line" fashion. (In fact, he mentions this more than once,
and is quite adamant about it.) He seems to feel that this kind of
setting is too stressful and conducive to reactions.
