Subject: Galaxy?

Hi --
My guys should be vaccinated for distemper in the next month or so. I
asked the vet I went to for rabies vaccinations about reactions to
Fervac, and in the course of the conversation he mentioned that he
thinks that another vaccine, Galaxy, has a lower incidence of reactions.
However, it is not approved for ferrets.

A 1994 article ( )
quotes our Dr Bruce Williams as saying it's too early to conclude that
Galaxy will be harmless to ferrets. That was 7 years ago; do we know
anything more about it? Has anyone out there used Galaxy on their kids?

Thanks --
