Subject: two more vaccination questions

First I want to thank all of you for responding to my previous question
about ferret reactions to vaccinations. I will take all this
information to my vet as I know she is interested.

Now my next question. Because of the reactions two of my ferrets had, I
will take the advice of everyone in the future and give the distemper
shot first and 2-3 weeks later the rabies. Many advised giving the
benedryl 1/2 hour before the shot. Is that before each of the shots, or
just the distemper or the rabies?

One other question.... if my ferrets are scheduled for their regular
shots in say Aug., does it hurt them to have one or both of them given
2-3 months earlier? But 2-3 weeks apart.

Thank you to all who have answers to this.
