Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Are we over vaccinating our

I have decided from now on after my ferrets are 3 years old, I will not
vaccinate them anymore. Last year 4 of my ferrets had severe reactions even
after giving them Benadryl 30 minutes or more before their shots. I also
have decided that I will not be bringing in anymore ferrets into my house,
therefore they won't be exposed to new ferrets and since I don't have dogs
anymore, there really shouldn't be problems. My cats also do not go outdoor
and I don't vaccinate them every year. I also ask my vet how many distemper
animals he has seen in the past few years and he says very few! I also will
not be taking my animals out in the public anymore.
